I'm actually buying a Buschur Racing Street core tomorrow. I'm not sure on the dimensions, but I'm gonna hold off on piping for a little bit to get some more money. Got a deal I couldn't pass up.

I'll take some pics of the IC once I pick it up, but it's gonna be a little while till I get piping fabricated for it.

I have a Spearco 2-216 which is 28.5x10.5x3.5. It's got 2.5 piping, short routed. Piping is aluminum. I made it myself. I will get around to pictures eventually. I think there are some new pipe routing pictures I took for you guys but they are still on the digicam.

those of you with the short route piping, did you feel a difference when you went to short piping?

would you say it was worth the trouble of cutting and stuff to get shorter piping, or is the stock route just as good?

I'm going for quite lofty goals so I felt short route was best. FWIW, Adam @ AMS has stock routing on his 10.9 second GVR4. Over the manifold and everything. Of course he was also spraying [Wink]

I'll look through my pictures and try to get some up this weekend. I know I took some specifically for you guys before.

im just trying to decide if its worth the trouble of doing short route

Short route piping has no effect on performance or horsepower. It’s just a matter of preference.

none at all? will it help with pressure drop?
and sorry to ask, but what exactly do you guys mean by the "short route"?
ive stared at my gvr4 many times thinking of ways to run the ic piping. and the stock one looks like it would probably be the best way to run it.
but i havent done any reaserch and that is just my opinion.

This is what I cut to plumb my IC via the short route method. Notice the bumper and the two boxes cut out on both sides of the frame. To cut through the bumper, I used a 14" chop saw. The frame material is rather thin sheet metal, I used a small cut off wheel and sawzaw to cut through it. I welded two tabs to the bumpers to mount the IC and cut off the IC's top tab. The IC is a 2-216 core.
