the great majority of the time you're recirculating air ie: the DV is open and dumping hot air from right off the turbo exit pipe back into the intake. By relocating the DV to just before the Throttle body, you're now recirculating cool air that has already passed through the intercoolers. You're also depressurizing the system at the point of obsruction (The throttle body), not the whole intake tract from the current dump point. Benefits:
Cooler eventual intake temps Faster DV response Less turbo spool down on shifts and off throttle No heat related problems with the DV
This pretty much became a default mod for the Audi TT guys..

If you are looking for a LOUD intake this is not for you. Very refined and moderate in tone. The emphasis here is on heat control and smooth efficiency.
On the Boxster, the calipers mount to the rear of the hub leaving the larger of the pistons as the trailing piston (the brembos have 2 sized pistons). If you do not swap the crossover tube and Bleed nipples to the opposite side of the caliper and then swap car sides, the larger piston will be the LEADING one when mounted in front of the axle. Simple fix. Racers say this could lead to a little pad taper. You'll also need to install some anti-squeal pads as the solid mounting leads to more noise with the Brembos.
