I thought the TB exhaust dump was kind of decent...

Somebody here made and is using the TB exhaust dump. Why wouldn't it work? Anything to relieve back pressure is going to help get the exhaust out.

Same goes for the air filters in the cabin - gotta be a lot cooler there than under the hood.

More of that turbo stuff will work - it's just ugly.
