Take a look!

Haha, any IC is better than none, and you get progressively less benefit, so I'd say you'd probably get 75% of the benefit of an IC over double in size. If you get good airflow to it you'll be better off than a giant one that's mostly covered.

That said, it does look like its going to end up right behind your bumper, no? I'd see if you can fit it right behind the kidneys.

Lag, in the traditional sense, is unaffected. You will have a higher volume of air between the impeller and the throttle body, which will take slightly longer to compress (it acts like a spring) but the effect is very, very small.

It is more important to have one that has a nice air path and this one looks ok, though all things considered you'd want one with more, shorter paths than fewer, longer paths for less pressure drop from constriction.

Cliff's Notes: this will be fine.

From the picture it looks you're Mad Max movie fan,big knifes hanging on the wall,some Satan skull on the top shelf. The intercooler gets air flow fore sure,a bit longer at least to fill the bumper would have been nice
