why does that intake have 2 pipes going in. 1 from the air filter box and 1 from somewhere else.. looks like it goes down to the alternator area...

im intrigued too..excited to know.. its definitely a first to see that split.
i wsa thinking maybe its a charger, but still, its not an expected setup. and i would have expected different layout or piping..

thats a 8v T

the turbo sits directly under the intake so thats why it looks like theres 2 pipes coming from the intake throttle
