      So I am getting ready to take the plunge on a Pag bottom-mount kit. I am doing as much planning as I can ahead of time as this is my daily driver. I believe I have everything sorted out except the charge piping for a passenger side throttle body configuration and my existing Eurojet 'race' FMIC with 2.5" piping. I am not interested in purchasing a new intake manifold just yet.

      I found some shots from the Engine Bay Thread where people have accomplished what I'm looking to do. I need the cold-side outlet routed along the driver-side of the engine, using as much existing piping as possible. Do people usually have the charge pipe on the outlet fabricated here? Any suggestions on where to go for this piece?

      Here are some examples:








      Any thoughts or suggestions are most appreciated.

      I'm wondering the same thing myself. The pag kit is pretty stealth compared to others, which is the main reason I will purchase one in a few months. I plan on keeping the ic piping in a stock style setup, but I think I using the Audi intake mani might be the best option

      My existing piping looks like this. I imagine I'd need to modify the top charge pipe a bit to reach the cold-side outlet on the Pag bottom-mount kit. I'd be even happier if someone had something like this for sale as I have no clue where to get something like this made.

      If you tell Arnold your plans, he can build around it so there's no ghettoness...

      You think he'd help me get an outlet pipe like that fabbed? I'll shoot him a message.

      Yeah if you let arnold know what your doing he'll work with ya to get things set up. Hell he even offered set up my V-band Manifold to have my 71R on the stock side so I could use my kinetic FMIC pipping I currently have as I had to decide between a clutch and pretty routing.

      I'm thinking I might just have him make a cross over pipe that way I can use the current pipping for now then once I get some more money saved for a driver side Manifold I can have him mock up some pipping that will run under the car and I just have to reclock the turbo.

      But just talk to Arnold, let me know what you wanna do and he'll offer a few solutions for ya

      That second pic is from my car. I am mafless right now so I could make you a good deal on the charge pipe with the aem filter.

      Just to be clear, I'm referring to the pipe coming off the compressor before it reaches the intercooler. I think I am OK on the inlet piping as it comes with the Pag kit.
