I would assume its hard with the throttle body pointing out to the side and the turbo on the opposite side? Post some pics up on your thread when you have it mocked up. I'm sure we can all help with a solution. You might just need more tube to connect to a similar setup or one with the tanks on the sides. I have also seen blank intercoolers that you can locate your own connections too.

good to hear no major damage to trans. Nice job on the BOV.

I figured out where all the noise in the front end was coming from. My saco steering rack was clapped out and had a ton of slop in it. I ordered a saco magnum rack, had a billet rack spreader made, and made lighter tie rods to help prevent this issue in the future.
I am also making some lighting changes too. I ditched my light rack loaded with hellas and installed a Rigid 40" led light bar. I wanted to utilize my old mounts and do something different so i built a custom mount. Its not anything crazy but it came out clean and simple. I swapped my eagle eyes hid for some baja designs 4" fuego hids. I am still trying to figure out what lights i want to run mid level on the car. I have eagle eye hids there now but i am looking for 6" spot lights. I am looking at the baja designs 6" prerunner hids, hella 4000 compact hids, hella 6" leds, or kc 6" leds. Just torn on what to do hid or led.
