I'm no expert, but the plumbing for the intercooler is not supposed to stick out front air dam. Right? Seems like a bad job to me.

That car also looks like it will lose bits of it's plumbing everytime it goes over a speed bump.

Guys could also be fake. Because the VTEC is pretty difficult to mod. I believe even the tuners prefer a regular 1.5 over the VTEC. If it were to be turbocharged, then it must be done bt someone who knows his work well. And such a person would hardly leave the intercooler open like that knowing well that all it would take is a small stone to ruin the entire setup.

I guess it is a spoof job. What say guys?

i can also c a really big oil cooler below the intercooler.......the plumbing is really impractical......cause everyone knows u can easily get proper plumbing done like every t city around... also he has cut a part of the apron to get the pipes through........

if i am not mistaken that car from indiranagar belongs to rohan and the work has been done in mangalore.

@ajmat:
that is one desperate method of plumbing...would love to know what he ahd in his mind when he came up with something like that
