The picture is a little deceiving. There is about a 2-3" gap between the exhaust pipe and the intercooler pipe. It is also exposed to all the air going by at speed. I have run trended intake air...

I will take it to the track someday. What I am afraid of is if I get too much traction that I will start breaking things.

It can be a handful! I am actually amazed how well it does hook up. I have considered getting some Mickey Thompson Street Radials to help more with traction.
