Intercooler connecting the pipe work, Fuel pipe fitting


I spent the weekend cutting the pipework so I can route the turbo output to the intercooler side pipes. I recevied the silicone hoses from Viper performance and have fitted the last remaing section to complete the intercooler circuit.
I also fitted some hoses over the orginal passenger heater connections and fitted a billet aluminium plig to block these off. I haven't destroyed anything in this aera in case i need to get access later.
I have bent the copper pipe work and temporaily fitted two runs down the driver side to complete the fuel circuit, also order 3 more 8mm to 10mm fuel hose adpaters as there is a mixture of 8mm and 10mm connections all over the place.
I also have the hoses to complete the coolant circuit, just need to get the raditor permantly fixed by welding some supporting brackets onto the intercooler brackets.
Work is not happening fairly quickly now I have the parts, and first fire day is approaching !!
