If you have someone who can weld AL then that's the better and cheaper choice - SS prices have skyrocketed thanks to China & India heavy demands
I would ceramic coat what ever pipe I use anyways so there

their price is fairly reasonable for their Hipercoat
Semi-gloss black is what I'll go with but if you want some bling you can use the polished aluminum or flat red colors

There are alot of companies that do ceramic coatings. I've used HPC and have liked their Hipercoat coatings

I'd rather do a DIY. I'm thinking of using Techline coatings.

is it possible to reverse the jdm spec c intake manifold (eliminated tgv's...goes all the way down to the heads.)?
im just wondering because i like the fact that the spec c mani completely eliminates the tgvs and im definitely going to do the reverse mani.

egineerx - thank you so much for that picture. im going to order the same stuff you got. see my aps piping comes up almost right to the top of the fender, so it wont be too much of that 90 degree piping going down there.

no prob....
As I mentioned before - if you want to use the 90* 2.5" OD elbow make sure it's a 3-inch bend radius - get the 20-gauge (0.035" thickness) it's just as light as AL pipe.

I did have to make the fender opening larger.... I used a hammer to make it larger to allow using the straight pipe & 90*. Because it comes out of the fender at an angle, you need more room to line up to the turbo outlet. I sprayed it with paint to inhibit any rusting since the bending messes up the paint around the edge. Then I used rubber trim around the edge. The larger opening makes fabbing the pipes alot easier as you don't need to use two bends - like the APS silicone hose coupler.I tried to use as few bends as possible.

The turbo kit I have is an Ultimate Racing kit. The turbo outlet and the 90* elbow from the outlet line up nicely with the pipe. Others kits line up differently as the turbos are tilted / rotated differently.

Calitri: Yes, I kept the AC. The pipe does come very close to the Fluidyne rad. I still need to weld a bracket to the throttle side pipe to firmly locate it and fasten it to the engine. The IC rubber hose that it couples to will take care of engine movement, so no need for hump couplers.
Here's pic, shows pipe/rad clearances
]

My previous setup was OK, I just didn't like the look of the pipe going across to the fender. I'll probably put those pipes up for sale. They're nicely welded SS pipes.

yeah I was planning on running the hotside pipe under the intake manifold but it looks like you save a lot of piping just clocking the turbo and running it straight to the fender

Thanks Dan!
Hopefully soon.
I want to finally get the Alky Injection installed. Already ran the tubing- just need to connect the electronics and get it to work with the Hydra 2.6
Everything is working well so far. New build is good. Just gotta make some time to head up to Speed Element and get it tuned.

What did you guys do with new line re-routing, specifically regarding the ones in the area of the stock positioning of the alternator?
