That definitely looks pretty similar.  Any performance benefit?  Without it being closed off from the engine bay, does it kind of wreck the intake temps?

Why would that matter? Inlet temps still get cooled by the intercooler.

Right, but if they start higher they end higher. Start cooler end cooler.

The company never asked. Kind of $h!tty.

And yes, that IS a pic of my engine bay and intake.

Strange. They could've at least just mentioned it was/is mine at the minimum. That would've been polite.

This isn't your engine bay and this is the one on their page.  Just FYI.  Very similar though.

That's not your car but the owner is in here. John is his name, he's on the forum.

Well I'm glad they changed the pics then. Because per Blackhawk's post way back in May of this year, they did (and were using) pics of my engine bay at that time.

After he posted that, I checked the link myself and they WERE my pics of my engine bay.

And no, they never asked. But whatever. Water under the bridge.

BPD has a custom one that is similiar if I remember correctly.

I do. Built by Kirk over at NESHO.

Loosely built off the Hennessey concept, but modified in different aspects.

Has worked out VERY well for me.

I had it PC'd once it got to me (in white) & then I purchased the dual flange S&B Performance Filter as well.

Is it possible to share a link to purchase this intake?
Or any contact details for this workshop?

Thanks.
