Contrary to popular belief, this is not true. This system has no intercooler, because it doesn't need one (the exposed, elongated intake pipes actually act like an intercooler), soo...the total volume of the intake pipes is equal to that of a traditional system with a necessary intercooler: minimal lag. As for exhaust pressure...pressure is pressure in a closed system, no matter where it's coming from...
