How about RJW's car?: http://biggulp.home.att.net/Aboutbigulp.htm

Looks like he's using two cones, nose-to-tail.

haha yep first thing I noticed.

Thanks for the other pics too. I've got a ricer filter on my N/A miata and after stop-n-go traffic, it'll detonate a bit, even running 93 octane. Sucks having the filter right next to the hotness.

Why doesn't anyone seem to run this with turbo setups? Does the increased length in the intake have a negative effect when a lot of air is being sucked in? Or is it because most turbo setups have open filters with no boxes, so no way to route the intake? I have this setup now with my normally aspirated miata (soon to be boosted), and I'll feel stupid with a hole in my firewall doing nothing.

I'll try and get some pictures of my intake.
