Stock, the air flows from the turbo outlet, to the front of the vehicle, across the engine bay from the driver's side to the passenger side, through the intercooler back to the driver's side, and finally back to the center of the vehicle where it enters the intake plenum.
CB Engineering's design comes from the turbo to the front of the vehicle, travels through the intercooler from driver's side to passenger side, then to the center of the vehicle where it enters the intake plenum. He removes at least two feet of piping with his design, as well as the plastic resonator thing in the middle. My only dislike of his design is the number of welds he uses to create the piping instead of utilizing a pipe bender to make for a seamless design.
I honestly don't know if his welds affect the airflow inside the piping at all, but I don't care for the appearance, so I haven't invested in it yet. I have been on the fence for awhile, though.
