No.. Took it in the front... The intercooler is a bit banged up but the charge pipes look good, even has a flange for the BOV....

I would avoid an IC from a car with front damage. I would not want to take a chance on a non visible crack.
and the stock dejon pipe on the driver side would not have a BOV flange for a stock turbo.

You are welcome Harry.

The wreck sky did not have a stock turbo, and it does have a flange for a BOV installation on the drivers side. That's if we are talking about the same wreck..

In Looking at those pics I noticed 3 things.

1. That flange is not for a Synape Bov and would need an adapter flange and the location is not optimal for the dimensions of a Synapse BOV.

2. That has to be the passenger side IC pipe and there is no guarantee that elbow will fit on the Garrett 2871. Looks to be the same diameter of the IC Pipe which is larger than the top of the 2871.

2. The second pipe in both pics is the intake tubing, not an IC pipe.
[Top Pipe in first Pic, Left pipes in second pic]

3. Sh1t looks all jacked up.

I would still advise buying new undamaged parts from Dejon.

Buy one of the Complete kits with the Following
[Part Numbers are bolded]
16ga aluminum pipe 3pc kit (w/TBE) IPK-SSB -$349 (save $38)
TBE = Throttle Body Elbow. Stock is rubber and prone to pop off with stock worm clamp on high boost

You do NOT need the mounting brackets and it looks way nicer without them.

Add the option for
Weld Aftermarket Blow-Off-Valve Flange on Pipe $49
with the choices of
BOV Flange -> Synapse
IC Pipe -> Left

And Add
Optional Silicone Couplers and T-Bolt Clamps (instead of standard) - $39

Choose whatever color you want for the Pipes and Silicon to make your engine bay look nice.

Be patient! With the weather we've got here now, you won't be able to test the car out anyway!

Love to see it when it is finished - maybe somone will organize a Spring run to Whistler or some such.
