Ok i have done the searches, and everywhere you can buy "piping" it is not every piece i need or requires insane cutting.

is there a place i can buy piping that might cost more than the average piping, but is already cut to fit my application? i mean where i can just buy it and slap it on? i don't have cutting tools nor do i trust my measurement skills.

I have seen ONE on ebay, but its 2" piping and still needs one pipe to be cut. i would prefer 2.5" as that is what i have right now and all the couplings and stuff..... and of course the IC is 2.5"

i would have thought with the plethora of turbo civics out there, that someone would have made an all-inclusive kit. I don't mind paying a slight premium for the fitment, but cannot find one.

I know about stealthmode, jc whitney, etc... i've done searches on HMT, d-series, HT, and all that stuff.... it seems everyone is making their own. I just flat-out don't have the capability, know-how, or anything to do that. I messed up an injectors install for cryin out loud.

but any help here would be great.... you guys seen any kits ready to install for the '92-00 civic? i have a d15b and greddy kit with Johnny race car IC

you can buy a premade generic kit, but you are still going to have to cut and modify it to fit.

i am custom making mine out of mandrel bends. see if you cant find someone interested in taking on the project.

a battery powered chop saw from craftsmen would be a good investment. i ordered three 2.5'' u-bends from summit, and did all my ic piping myself with little experience. order about ten couplers and the only thing that will need to be welded will be your bov flange. what kind of a man are you, not to have any tools!!?? j/k

The only problem with cutting your own is not having beaded ends on the pipes. What I'm gonna do with my cut pipes is take a flathead screwdriver and hammer a few times around the inside of the ends just to get some bumps going for the couplers to grip to, it should be a lot better than just silicone on flat metal.

with some quality couplers and clamps, it shouldn't be an issue. just run the pipes end to end as closely as possible, and tighten the shit out of the clamps. flared ends are kinda overkill.

heh, i have some tools, just no saws or anything.

Don't want to buy any either as i'm about to move into a small ass apartment and need to save all the space i can. no need to buy new tools for one-time use....

i just got that kit on ebay listed above... its not the size i need, but i'll figure something out. at least its the right measurements.

thanks guys.
