Look at the valve covers.

That picture is their formula one engine. If thats the intake tube its probably like that due to restrictions placed on the engine.

props to Saml01 for the supporting pics, and i thought it was clear it was an F1 engine when i posted it, its about as far as a stretch as putting an ls9 into a miata.
