front mount 93 legacy

Post by nosyt » Wed Apr 02, 2014 5:54 am

Well I posted these photos in my build thread but figured id post them up here for people looking for options.

This is a GC impreza kit from cx racing modified the piping to run behind the headlights instead of out the fender. Very little of the bumper beam had to be removed and stock hood latch will still work

How much did you have to trim below the headlamps?

for less bends, drivers side pipe goes to turbo, pass side goes to throttle body.
this will eliminate 180 degrees of bends on the back side of the engine.

kinda like this.
(i had a rotated intake setup. but you can see how the back piping is straight to the turbo. pass side would only need one 90 degree bend on your setup)

I dont like running the throttle body pipe over the turbo heats up the pipe right before throttle body. The 180 really isnt that restrictive
