    Haven't seen one, but it seems like in order to really fit under a hood they'd need to have a sharper bend than would be preferred?

    Seems to me (admittedly, I'm still an idiot) that it'd be better to have an adapter that mounted the TB in line with the manifold, with provisions for a stock air filter above it.

    Looks like that may be a Procharger piece - might be worth looking into?
