I wanted to do that at one point too, I prefer to have it as a vent. I think most ways to convert that to an intake use poor piping routing in genneral. But if its all done starting with the up pipe I think it could be done in a better configuration.

Side note: Just got my seats back today from being recovered, so happy with how it turned out. I will post some pictures when I am at a computer next.
Gotcha man I do prefer the way ets routed the manifold piping by going under the intake manifold. However with a stock location turbo that's not possible tho.

I get what your saying in the piping for that intake setup isn't ideal however there are few setups like P&L's for example it does a hard 180 right out the compressor housing. The only way to get it "right" I'd think it would have to have the compressor inlet pointing at a ~45 angle towards the engine and even then running the downpipe would be TIGHT. And then the cold side pipe would have to run like the Perrin kit does.

Oh hell yeah! I can't wait to see how they turned out!
