Default Turbo guys: alternative to 3D printed intake

I'm jealous of the N/A crew who can take advantage of that sweet 3D printed intake. However, by accident I came across this sweet 3" intake elbow from do88 in Sweden. I think it's wide enough to allow maximum flow, while being slim enough to fit between the radiator and the hood (i measured approx. 65mm using some clay, whereas the cobra measures 55mm). The opening in front of the radiator will probably need some trimming and might squish the hse a bit, but at 3" overall flow should still be great, while keeping intake length shorter than a randal intake. I'll keep you updated.

You can also find more options if you google search for "cobra head elbow".

I didn't know this was common knowledge, as I've never seen someone using it before. Also, other cobra heads will most likely not fit over a thick 50mm radiator
