U can kinda see my blow thru here and also u can see where I did my brake booster vacuum lol
Be careful on just having it on a toggle switch. I have seen at least 3 people I know personally forget to turn their fans on at some point and over heat their engines... One with a Supra forgot for so long that his radiator core expanded!
His engine was toast after that.
I'd suggest wiring it into the stock wiring so that the ECU can control it. Or at least put a thermostatic switch in the circuit and leave the switch on at most times!

I ran my piping through the front of the car, near the headlights. I don't have any pics on my photobucket, but I can explain to you how it was ran if you're curious.

There are pics of it in a different thread... I'm not concerned with people seeing it. I'll post some up later today if I get some time.
I re located the PS reservoir to where the stock BCS solenoid sits, and ran the pipes right next to the ABS module between it and the cylinder head.

mine wont be looking like this anymore its in the middle of a upgrade, makeover.


To the guy asking about what to cut on the hood its all going to depend on what chassis you have, how your piping is ran and how big it is. trim and necessary.

this is exactally what i was thinking of doing as well, thats crazy, would love to see some pics of it. so i can get i visual on how it will all come out. what PS reservoir did you use? i was thinking of a new year as thats where they are mounted and would make it look more OEM i guess you would say since the 05 sti one just doesnt look right to me when placed where the stock BCS is. also do you have any pics of where it goes behind the head lights as far as how much has to be trimmed , im running 2 1/2" pipes on both sides and it looks like its going to need some triming in these areas. i guess some good pics of everything would really help out!

I used a plasma cutter to make the holes. Same size piping- 2.5".
I used stainless charge pipes because I was worried about rubbing issues around the holes, but I put some thick silicone hose around the pipes where it goes through the metal to protect it just in case.
I used the stock reservoir can just cut a slot into the BCS bracket to hold it like stock. The cover still fits over it, so it looks fairly stock besides the long hose running from the reservoir to the pump.
I'll put some pics up in a second if I can find them...

No close up pics of the holes, but you get the idea. I was going to flip the IC core but I was rushed. If you're in WI you can swing by and see it.

yeah flipping the core would have helped, but also created a place for oil to pool.

If you're that worried about it just put a drain hole in the core.

Here's my ugly setup. Works good tho lol

Id recommend wrapping the intercooler pipe with thermal tape. All that heat comming of the radiator just defeats the purpose of the intercooler.

probaly the only way a leggy/ plastic manifold would have any shorter piping.

plastic manifold might save a nice chunk of weight too, anyone got weights?
