Basically, it's a pain in the ass. From the driver's side end tank on the IC, a pipe wraps around and up to a stock rubber coupler, then attaches to a stock plastic hard pipe and then to the hose to the throttle body. You'll have to move the metal tubing for the AC up a little bit so that the Apex hard pipe extends as far up as it can go. Good luck. BTW, I upgraded the stock soft IC hoses on the passenger side with the upgrade kit from the HKS Type-s IC and bought a 3 inch diameter 90 degree bend aluminum pipe, 3" silicon hose coupler, and 3" to 2.5" transition hose to finish off the soft piping to the throttle body.

It is a major pain in the ass. You're just going to have to muscle it in by pushing up on the IC piping until it reaches the stock rubber pipe to the TB, and have a friend tighten the hose clamp. I bought a blitz BOV kit which replaces that entire rubber pipe to the TB so that helped out a little. Good luck.
