I think it might be possible to get a better angle on the tilt using a 45 degree coupler for the outlet (which would have to be cut to fit), and a 90 degree elbow (which would also have to be cut to fit, and a helix IC adaptor, which has a cast aluminum y-piece, and a 90 degree hose to connect to the turbo. Unfortunately, since my efforts are currently focused on finishing my water sprayer, and paying for a laptop I just had to buy because the dog knocked my old one off the table, that experiment will have to wait a bit. I think it would be cool to stand up the IC at a 45 degree angle on top of the motor, which would give you the low lag of a TMIC and the efficiency of a FMIC, and a huge scoop like a supercharger (if you like that sort of thing), but it will have to wait.
Like I said, this was the $3 version that anyone can do. The extreme version will be far more complicated, expensive, and the appearance may not be to everyone's liking, but I do have a person who is willing to make me a custom hood...but I'd still have to buy another hood, and the piping for the mod...I'm probably looking at about $1200 for the experiment. Of course if I can make something like that happen, I'd see if enough people were interested to make a few kits and sell them (I even have access to a person in China that can organize manufacturing some parts for me, but I'd probably have to order a minimum of 500 units or so.
Like I said, its a cool idea, but I'm not sure if people will like it, or how well it will work, or if it will work well enough to be worth the money it would cost to do.
When I DO get around to trying this mod, I'll probably be doing it with a larger aftermarket TMIC, like that cheap eBay one. It requires some work to make it fit anyway, so why not see if I can make it fit at 45 degrees?
