Thanks. The TB and the IC throat are offset in all three axis and there is such a small distance between them it is a challenge to get it right. I initially looked at moving the Garretson IC towards the driver side so the outlet throat would be in line with the TB front to back axis but then it interferes with the engine lid hinge. I wanted the benefits of a long neck IC but the removal convenience of a short neck. I like to minimize the use of hose clamps and silicone connectors so made the inlet elbow to turbo inlet transition out of two exhaust adapters and welded it to the S pipe. Now to bead blast everything and paint it.
