intercooler problem

i just grabbed a ebay top mount and it fit nicely but the bottom part of the y piping is like an inch away from my turbo, any one know wher i can buy a 90 degree silicon hose thats like atleast 7 inches long so i could just trim it?

also, im goin to get tuned wen all my parts are installed.
big 16g
modded injectors
255 pump
top mount
CAI

the place im gettin tuned is 40-50 miles away, can i drive my car ther safley or should i get a flatbed?

As for the tube idk. What type of EM do you use? Contact the tuner and get a dummy or limp map. If you cant I wouldnt drive the car there at all.

That is a lot of changed parts for a stock tune. I would try to trailer it there unless you can get a roughly accurate map and limp it there. Try Lowe's or something for silicone tube.

If you not tuned for the injectors, it won't make it very far.

Just head into schuck's or napa. They carry heat resistant silicone 90's, around 70 to 90 dollars. A far cry from subaru's $360 stock price. And they come extra long. 2.25" diameter I believe.
