Yeah that's the plan for now. I'm only planning on running 5-6 psi as I don't think the engine could take much more with the age and kilometres.
More and more I'm liking the silver. Will definitely need a polish though.

I was thinking of going under the radiator then up and have the intercooler ports on the the bottom. Now you've got me thinking haha

Here's the link. I got a discount due to a promo but it's still fairly priced.
That was my original plan too but I wasn't happy with making it the lowest point on the chassis. I also wanted to make is look as neat and factory as possible. Honestly I think it's the cleanest way to ever run a front mount.

Last night I ordered the rest of the silicon joins except the one for the throttle body. I went with red as it's about a 3rd of the price of getting black. And all the joins will be out of the engine bay anyway so I think it will work. Black for in the engine bay. Red for the outside the chassis.

When I did that the straight joiners I got are 2.25" to 2.5" reducer to the intercooler as it gives me more options and again, about a 3rd of the price of getting 2.25" straight.
