    I have an issue with that. When it comes to pass the piping, there's a little bowl with A/C lines in my routing. It's possible to relocate this stuff ?

    Yes on the cold side.
    I have a 28'' core with a 90 deg coupler on the cold side and i'll pass my piping all way up in staight line to the TB. I dont have the smic anymore but the big fan is still there.

    So the only way to do what i want with the piping I have in hand, is to pass where that dryer is sitting.

    get that fan off and use a slimline... taht fan is doing you no good without the SMIC.

    as long as you're careful you can move the dryer down.

    But it's not possible to keep the stock one even if is doing nothing ??

    Where can I get a slim fan and for how much?

    ok so i was just wondering how u guys have so much clearance behind your bumpers? i cut and welded supports on my bumper beam and it looks like the pipes will hit the fog light indents and the IC is mounted about just as far back as it will go...any input?

    my cold pipe routing goes under the fog light bucket... hot pipe doesn't even get to that area using the current less than ideal routing..

    the routing I used will interfere, however, you're welcome to go with a different cold pipe routing and keep the CAI. personally, I don't believe (opinions differ) the CAI gives you any gains over the SRI...

    I recommend about a 26*5-6*3 core. but you can do whatever you want with those dimensions, as there is plenty of space.
