Hey Cole,

I believe this particular example you posted happens to be Craig's car, and you might notice it goes through the inner fender. The advantage to running the air intake this way is that it can be 3" ID the entire length of the intake tract. I've not seen any other intake setup on a 930 (with stockish turbo and I/C plumbing locations) that does this. The stock intake pipe has to be reduced in size and/or twisted arund like a pretzel to get past the motor mount area in the corner of the engine bay. I've been told that reducing restriction in the airflow before the compressor will improve the quickness of spool up.
