The position is very similar to the stock intake location. In no way have we reduce airflow to the aforementioned intercooler. In the STS V8 an alternative path might work. But in the V-series you are only able to use the angles the plastic pipe gives you coming off the throttle body. The engineers typically play with various mounting locations. The ones that make it to production are always the best paths, performance, and most economical. Please let us know if there are any questions.

Also, with the air intake actually at the back of the engine compartment, have you investigated different paths to the TB?
