Brian’s Turbo K Series Civic Update~

We went to work on Brian’s intercooler pipe layout and figured out the hotside pipe in one shot. We wanted to make the pipes as short as possible while still retaining a good fit around the awkwardness of the K series engine layout. With the turbo side put together we hung back and began to dream up the cold side and how the intercooler charge could be cleaned up…
