    Looks pretty good I like what you did. The transitions are a lot tighter. I'd probably do the transition under on the hot side with less sections. Got any pics of the section from compressor outlet to under the frame rail? I'm looking to redo mine and its almost on the short list.

    i always like to run the piping in that space between the radiator and the frame. There is metal there that offers no structural support so cut it out and run it straight through there.

    Yep I like to run the hot side there. Not a big fan of running under the radiator support. Good upgrade though.

    Andrew wanted the new piping exactly like the Hotshot kit, on the hot side we ran out of 90's so I had to make one out of pie cuts.

    Yes I've been there too. Its still functional and I see a lot of JDM custom stuff like that so it looks cool.

    Well once you knock the pipe off the coupler once or twice its a pain in the ass but its not too hard to fix. Ask me how I know. Generally I don't cut the chassis so I prefer this route.
