There are two different design routes to cooler air that are pictured here that would work with the space we have under the hood. The Shelby GT-500 and the G-Power Hurricane design. The only reason ESS did not do this is because of money. It was simply cheaper not to do it. ESS told me that it did not matter because the intercooler was so efficient. I would love to see their data. I have read reports with the GT-500 design that there was a 50hp difference between the cold air and open air design.
