Re: Mod: ft mount intercooler 'n' induction kit

I have notice that on front mount intercoolers on subaru there are different ways of connecting the pipe work i have seen some cars with the left pipe set going to the turbo and the right side going to the throttle body and on other cars the right side goes turbo and left pipes go to throttle body does it not matter which way these pipes connect Up help me understand please as i want to fit my own

without checking, i'd guess it depends if the turbos side or front entry, but as said thats a guess.

it might just be a case of slightly different designs in pipe feeds

looking at mine feeds are different but both should be front entry turbo's, so im stumped lol
