Thank You!

I missed the part about that being steel. I am looking for aluminuim bends.

Default aluminum pipe

I have built cold air intakes out of aluminum, I would have built this one out of Aluminum but I wanted to ceramic coat the inside and out of it to keep the engine heat off of the pipe and out of the motor. The intake pipe is not heavy at all. If you would like I could find out where my parts house got the Aluminum bends from. Aluminum intakes do look cool. I will post pics. of mine after I get it coated. Good luck with yours, I hope that it turns out well.

If you do not mind that would be nice. Eventaully I want to do the boost tubes and intake up pipe with butterfly air shut off in it. But right now I just need to get it running!

On the first elbow right outside of the turbo, how did you get it to fit into that TINY space? It looks like you had to do some beating on it to flatten it out a little to get it in there?
I TRIED tigging up an elbow out of some 4" alum irrigation pipe we had laying around but I didnt do much measuring, just laid out a 3 piece 90 and welded it up----it didnt fit in there without having to do some major beating on it so I gave up.
The silicone boot would suck shut on me on WOT---its a scary feeling. I ended up cutting about a 6" piece of the 4" pipe and shoving it inside the silicone boot all the way down into the elbow as far as I could get it to go and put a couple of hose clamps on it (just in case). The blue silicone boot doesnt look nearly as nice as Brandy's steel tube or the aluminum one I had dreamed up but it works! At least it isnt sucking shut on me anymore.
My winter project is to try and weld up another alum 90 THAT FITS.

Yes I did have to dent in the pipe on the first 90 to clear the upper radiator pipe. I did not have to dent it in very far though. In fact I dented it in more that I needed to. When I get it off in the next week or so I will post a pic so you can see just the pipe.

I have to get it ceremic coated yet. Just a little info. about my install--- I cut the EGR pipe off of the Rt. side pipe and welded a cap on it. I installed a LB7 intake manifold on my LLY and removed all of the EGR stuff. I relocated the boost sensor to the new intake pipe, that gave me more room in the front of the motor for the intake pipe. I had the turbo pedestal and down pipe ceramic coated. I also wrapped the down pipe in header wrap.
Great job!!!! Looks just like mine...
