Default What's wrong with this intake?

I just wanted to get feedback on whether or not this is a good intake setup (sorry tripod sux for image hosting)

Bad intake. Filter on TB. The car has a very small intake manifold, so it uses the air inside that big box intake thing to smooth the air and get rid of any pulses.

You would loose a bit of low end torque with this.

everthing jeff said, and ill add the chance of ingesting water into the engine is also much higher with this type of intake.

Its bad because of the breathers. Removing all of those lines from the intake REDUCES performance, that is why all of the aftermarket quality intakes retain the piping to the engine. Dcrawford ran this type of intake with a fiberglass housing to keep it getting cold air from the scoop, but he also made sure the vacume with the engine was maintained by modifying a few of the hoses to go into the cone filter. You have to do it properly for it to work right.
