      AHhhhhh- Yep pretty much looks like one could Bolt on Lower Turbo Manifold and then Bolt on Upper Performance Plume & 70mm Throttle Body ..

      Or Make You Own Upper Plume , I just can't see How a 11:1 Compression Motor could be Hurting for Bottom End Tq. , so Throw Out the Extra Long Plastic Web and Go Full Tilt Bogey ~

      It wouldn't be that simple.... T5 throttle body is on the lower left, coming up from the intercooler. 2.4i throttle body is on the upper right, coming from the MAF.

      Theoretically, you could add the T5 upper plenum, relocate the MAF, and put the intake filter down behind the fog grille. Not sure this would gain you anything and you might need a tune to avoid a MAF related CEL. Not sure the shape of the T5 plenum is really optimal for non-forced induction either.

      I was thinking out loud ~

      Generally Long Runners on Intakes are for Lower End . . Shorter Intake Runners for Higher Up .. with Nice Sounding Dual , doesn't have to be Riced Out like a Honda ..
      In Fact the 5 cly. doesn't sound anything like that ...especially ripping past 6500 Rpm's

      As it is set up Now it's like having a 2 barrel Carburetor on 4 Valve Twin Cam Head - 11:1 Compression - then Put on " Lincoln Tunnel Intake system "


      Lower Intake Unit even Stops with a Flat surface - couldn't be a Nicer Presentation , other then say Here I am I'm choking could U - Un_Cork Me !

      Like to see a Fab On with Dual Throttle bodies - Dead Center - with say 4 inch space Between those .. ( 1 Actual , 1 just a Follower ) with Common Shaft ..
      Certainly the Parts are very Cheap ..

      Testing with Plastic Upper Plume as there has to be 101 of those available $25. and Thermal Gasket .. also using the Thermal Gasket Off Ebay would Seal Nicely - Even If the Turbo Lower Unit was needed ..
      Testing Purposes - lets say the Test Plume doesn't Fit Perfectly - It would Only Require a Mating Surface Plate say 3/8" to Bolt Both Up ( If Turbo Plume doesn't Bolt Up ..) Perfectly ..

      If You Imagine cutting Off those Long Runners on 2.4i Intake system - it leaves Motor with a Plume - Not much Different then Turbo's Unit . .

      If Turbo assisted get The Natural Breathing Motor would Generate More : https://www.elevatecars.com/store/vo...-manifold.html

      Just Remember the Day of 4 Cly. & 8 Valves , then 16 Valves , then 5 cly & 20 Valves with Advance Twin Cams - Never could Run 11:1 compression , only Newer Ones with Computers . . Unless U had Race Fuel ..back then ..
      These 2.4i sound & Run - Nice ~ https://youtu.be/l5Kcz908XCs

      Anyone Taking the Time to really Build one of these T5's should get Rods Gun Drilled or Add Oil Splasher's to Crank Bolts ( like a Washer with Flip Lip )
      Could be made from Titanium Washers ( 5 x 1 per Exhaust side Rod Bolt ) so Weight would be very Nill - Grams -

      Personally New Style Pistons from an R Honda could be Adapted seeing these are Fed Oil from Gun Drilled Rods which Push Oil through Pistons to Cool ..
