Spence, it frees up some but not a lot. To use the space freed up by the AFM you'd still have to deal with the rubber elbow on the throttle body. With the AFM & rubber elbow out of the way, you could get an intercooler custom designed to discharge directly into the throttle body. I would imagine that would allow for an additional 3" of IC depth - a lot of fab work for little return IMO.

Thanks for your post, Mike. Just curious, have any of your cars run with no IC been twin plugged? Did you feel a need for further cooling? The more I read about methanol injection, the more I'm liking it. I'd be curious to hear about how difficult the install is.
