    Something to mention here.
    I remember seeing some testing somewhere on open vs "cold air," was a single power difference.
    The turbo is heating the air anyways. The temp difference is negligible. You aren't really making power/under load sitting at a stop when air isn't being forced through.

    Now N/A, I could agree that you want lowest possible.
    But, by all means, make a box. It does look better. Be "easier" to relocate the battery, and move the filter forward. Or set it up like a 6.0. Faces forward instead of sideways.
    At the bottom of the box is a big snout going into the grill area. [​IMG]

    A engineering buddy of mine who is over on fte pointed out, along the lines of what @79jasper said is(but expounding upon) if you are intercooled cold air really doesn't make much difference. Apparently it makes 5 whp on a super car at 200mph. Now I agree cold air is always better, but if you are intercooled then you are in essence cooling the air more than the cold air intake could do.
    Also good info to know that the riffraff filter is flowing that much! I always love learning new things
