i made myself a crossmember to cut down on wheel hop and also to replace the first one i made that i had sold. i had to make some mounts for the civic rad as well and modify the rad to fit too. when i have time, i still need to modify this cm so that i can incorporate the front engine mount again.

here is the downpipe. i wanted to incorporate the wg into the dp to save a bit on room. it ended up turning out ok, but it is a little crooked and i will have to modify it to mate it to the cat a bit better. i also intend to get rid of the cat and run a flex pipe section there instead.

one of my biggest problems to overcome was fitting the intercooler. the core is 26x12x3. i wanted to use a 22x9x3 but bmc was out of that size. i made my own end tanks to reduce piping. as you can see i had to make some changes in order to fit it. i didn’t want to modify the bumper either.

some mocking...


had to cut the front a bit to make room.


here is the new front frame piece that i made. it is removable and has to be so i can get the intercooler in and out.


mock up with the intercooler core:

the reason i went with a custom intercooler was so that i could minimize the amount of charge piping. here is how it came together:

first design the endtanks:


had my brother make some forms out of mdf.


make a template out of paper.


trace it onto some 16 guage aluminum.


cut it out.

trace the hole on the other side and cut it out, weld the pipe to it and the weld it to the core.

put that sucker in! no modification to the bumper or bumper rebar was made.




i made the end tanks a little on the narrow side. i have another core i may make another intercooler with and widen the end tanks out a bit so the pipes aren’t so tight against the rad on one side and the oil cooler on the other.

the next obstacle to overcome was how the hell do i connect these two together?


solution: one special “ghetto bend”. this thing took forever to make because after each piece i added i was checking to make sure i was going in the right direction to make it fit.
