Used all the same tubing and just cut it to run it between intercooler and condenser. The UPP routing is terrible, and i actually snapped a band clamp on my PS pump because it rubbed... hard to work on too. This is much better, but had to chop the radiator support where the stock hood clips in. I flipped the intercooler, and re-used the bracket for it. Just cut it in half and welded a little flat bar between the pieces to extend it out.

Nicely done...and all of that fits behind the front bumper?

Did you have to do anything to help support the front bumper somehow?
