Air flow from intake all the way out to tailpipe

Sorry for the beginner question....Can someone explain to me the flow of air from the point it leaves the air filter to when it leaves the tailpipe. I'm not looking from the perspective a rocket scientist but in basic form. Just the direction it flows from intake to turbos to ? (etc) then out the back.

Thank you

Thank you. Probably sounded like a stupid question, I just didn't have a pic in my head on it.

Nice writeup. But, don't forget about the EGR & coolers, if equipped.

Well in that case I would be the same up until the up pipes. The passenger side stays the same. Drivers side would be a branch between up pipe and EGR coolers then back into the intake elbow. But who cares about those things anyways. Delete and be done with it

Nice...thank you. This brings me to my original thought process. I was wondering where the flow to the egr was from and then where to -- Where that egr comes into play with that airflow. Same with the cold side intercooler.

Thanks again.
