Default How to mockup a EWG uppipe? PVC? Epoxy?

I will be shipping an uppipe (see uppipe below) to a fabricator to be converted to EWG, fabricator has experience with WRX/STIs but not Foresters which has less clearance according to what have read.

So I need to somehow mockup the EWG dump tube to show my fabricator where to weld and how to clock the V-band flangle in the uppipe and the the bend and length of the dumptube, any ideas on how to accomplish that?

I am thinking maybe get pvc tubing and epoxy to mimic the location of the v-flange and dumbtube.

thats tricky, I have done the same thing with less then perfect results... if at all possible find a fab guy near by that will simplify the whole project. IF that is not possible, LOTS of pictures and conversation will work, use tape and some permy marker, take some pics and worst case make some carboard tubes that have letters to match where each piece will be welded. It will be like a puzzle, but if the guys any good he should make it work. good luck.

all you need it the turbo, up pipe and downpipe. Any competent fabricator can go from there

I finished the mock-up dump tube using PVC pipe and Gorilla tape.
