I thought it was a good idea, but it is actually a bad idea (your pics are exactly what I did). I don't think it would cause a motor to pop right away, but on throttle transitions, one bank is gonna go lean and the other rich causing a short EGT spike. Keep on driving and your coolant temps just rise and rise. It is very noticeable in the Texas heat here, especially with ym front mount and the stock radiator. My coolant temps got up to 220 or so max and I didn't like that. The EGT spikes are short, but over time it would probably cause damage.
