The inlets let things breath better. So that lowers the wgdc giving you more room to make more boost.

The big drawback with relocate inlets is heat soak. If you're moving this isn't a problem at all. But when I'm sitting in staging my IAT's will just keep climbing. Turning the cooling fan on only makes it worse. Always hood open in staging to get that heat out.
It would be nice if someone would make a high flow closed element relocation kit with a scoop from the front end.
