    If youre getting them custom then why would you want pics mate?

    Its all about offering up and finding the best solution custom to the layout of your bay.

    i've sorted the pipes out behind the bumper already.

    i used the standard pipe to connect from the TB to the IC pipe

    i bought 500mm of black straight silicone pipe to make my own joiner from the pipes to the IC.

    cut the IC pipes to get everything to sit behind the bumper.

    just takes time and alot of trial and error until it all fits good

    will take some pics when i have the bumper off. hopefully this weekend if i get time

    heres photos of the front pipes so they don't stick out.

    standard TB to intercooler pipe


    cut the silver pipe down in this photo to get the right shape


    cut this pipe to get it to sit close into the car as possible


    you can see the longer joiners i just for the pipes to connect to the intercooler

    then you can see they don't even stick out as far at the impact bar
