    XS + Speedfreaks IC install

    Ok, It looks like this 45 Degree piece that I have cut will work on the upper connector but what should I buy to tackle the lower half??? 90 Degree pipe + 90 Deg Coupler or???

    Here is my setup.
    I run a 45 degree ss pipe on SC to IC with the same couplers you have.
    Then I used 45 degree couplers on both IC to TB with streight piece of ss pipe.

    You might be able to use a 45 pipe on the IC to TB but looks like to me you will have to make the coupler on TB shorter. I personally think a 45 degree on IC exit will make it much easier to fab.

    THat is what i would do on IC to TB. I would buy a 45 that will go on ic and then shorten the one you have on TB on both ends.

    I am going out to shop to work on ski, and can get my measurements on pipes if you want. They are very short.

    A streight piece pipe want work on sc to ic with the couplers you have.

    If you dont want to buy a 45 degree pipe, I think most running speedfreeks setup have 45 degree on both intercooler couplers. I like the 45 pipe as it goes arround the rear air intake very nice, but know the streight pipe will work with 45 coupler on ic. .

    I have a 45 degree pipe already cut and fits good. I just have to sand it and touch it up a bit. I just ordered me another 45 degree coupler and I have a straight piece I can measure and cut once I get the 45 Fitted.

    Oh and Lowes did not have any copper barbs for the bleed mod so I used a plastic one that has a 90 bend on it. You can see the existing X bleed line attached.
