The s13 chassis has become such an iconic car, and almost achieved that hot rod status because of how many have been modded in so many ways. It’s not too often anymore we get to really go to town on one, but this was an exception. It had a set of trailer fender tubs in it when it was brought to PMF, and needed intercooler piping done. With no room for it due to the over sized tubs, cutting them out and starting all over was the only choice. Bringing in a little bit of the hot rod sheet metal flare was just an extra.

Its all in the details! The intercooler piping was routed to be as symmetrical as possible, as well as the Chase Bays power steering and coolant reservoirs on either side of the radiator. Of course, the center of attention are the quilted northern version of wheels tubs. They will clear a 275/35r18 at full lock with an angle kit, but they are built to leave as much room as possible in the engine bay.
With a flex pipe and V band in the down pipe, it will eliminate any vibration or leaks.
