Side view. This being the passenger side, you will have to cut pipe right before the bend and add a boot between two pieces. You can see the boot that was added to make it work



Front view, just to give you another niew




and here is the PITA part... drivers side. will NOT fit around the ac compresser... has to be cut just before and the pipe has to be rebent to fit around the backside



as you can see on the drivers side, the nasty chitty bend that was made to fit behind the ac unit. Mine was just bent using a bench vice... I highly suggest taking the cut off piece to an exhaust shop and have them bend it just for appearance pusrposes... I am currently in process of doing this myself




If you need more specific measurements or what not on where the cut are exactly let me know, I will go measure them.

I will get them within 1/128th. Really the easiest way to do it(as far as Im concerned) is get your IC mounted and then throw the pipes in the engine bay and start cutting and fitting... you will need more boots and clamps... did you check out that website I posted in your other thread?

Ok, what I did... I was having problems blowing off the IC boots at all the bends because the little 3in. boots were barely long enough. where the pipe bends around the AC unit I ordered the 6" boot for more coverage... this one...

Charge Air Cooler Hose 3" ID X 6" Long w/Rings - Blue: Intake Hoses, IntakeTubing, and Intake Clamps

I also got a bunch of the constant torque clamps... only way to go, and doubled them up to ensure I wouldnt blow anymore boots off... these ones...

Constant-Torque Hose Clamp for 3" ID Hoses: Intake Hoses, IntakeTubing, and Intake Clamps

The double clamp thing overkill? prolly, but I havent blown a single hose since.:crazy: Also a little trick, clean the ends of the pipes really good and spray it with hairspray then install boots. Works good and really makes them stay in place.
