I'm doin it on the Pinto(Volvo intercooler), but unless you have a cross
flow intercooler, its not gonna get you much I dont think.
How could it help?  Inside its the same thing wheter it points forward or
sideways, and you can gut a stock one..Cory Erickson has a gutted upper
for cheap he says:)
Only reason I am doin it on the pinto is if I point it forward I get a few
littlebends, but now with the stock intake I have 4 90's betwen the
intercoolr and TB alone...I am not gutting out theupper after hearing cory
say he lost tons of bottom end..
