Yeah, it's as far against the firewall as it can go, and as far to the passenger side before running into my battery (which runs into the wiring harness) can go.

I measured when I built this intake, intending to do that, but it required going an inch or so through the hood without major relocation. As proven at 2012 nationals, I'm not 100% averse to doing that, but I'd rather avoid it if possible.

I'm thinking about spending some energy at some point actually consolidating my ABS lines. Right now, they're the original line length, bent into back and forth bends to make them fit the new brick, but that leaves a rats nest in the corner there, which is part of the problem here. Would be good to pull them out of the brick, chop them down to size to just cleanly go into the brick, and reflare, but I'm a little scared of getting the crazy metric flare **** right.

Here's another alternative, Rudolf's setup:



It works fabulously!

I'm scared of bends that large. I'm not getting much pressure drop around my few bends that go around to the driver's side headlight, but getting anything to the passenger headlight will require a total of well over 180 degrees of bends. My current one is a 90, a 45, and another 45, which work a lot better than a single 180 right at the throttle body. I'm only really worried about heat soak with my current setup (I really outta make a heat shield of some sort...) Passenger side headlight would be nice for simplicity's sake, but there's just not a lot of room to do so. :( I'll have to look and keep thinking about it when I get the car back.
