mmm, every time i try the pipes aren't connected properly, and when i try moving them bit by bit they will never fit.

RE: Engine Showcase
Use hose clamps if they don't fit good

(seeing that im new to this, 5+ likes and i will finish the exhaust system)

Wheel gap is like thigh gap, the more rubbing, the better.

RE: Engine Showcase
There are some serious errors on your piping. The front intake on the turbos should take in fresh air through a filter. The plenums/intake manifolds should pipe into the intercooler, no air intake. The flange coming out of the side of the turbo should also pipe into the intercooler. Exhaust comes out of the back of the turbo.

Really great piping job, I don't mean to insult you or say it's bad or anything of that matter. I mean this in a constructive way, hopefully I helped you. If you don't understand feel free to ask me.

RE: Engine Showcase
So I just spent 2 hours trying to do a engine build and I tried really really hard and it looked super cool and then I put it in my car and chose a front bumper and every bit of my engine piping went EVERYWHERE... I will never waste my time on piping again :'(

thats why when i do my builds with detail on piping i build the car first then select the engine i want to use and move it out of the engine bay and work on it then move it in the bay once im done Smile
