Default Intake manifold conversion

I was looking at some pictures of a twin turbo set up on a mk3 supra, and in the photo his intake manifold did not come across top of motor, it came up then straight to front of motor for easier conection to cool air side of intercooler. any idea where i could get one of those intake manifolds and what all i would have to change to make tha set up work? like the throttle linkage and things like that i could not even see the throttle body in the picture. i am only running single stock turbo but i have an intercooler that has opposite side hot and cool air input and outputs and it would make it a whole lot easier to run the piping that way, and it would also keep me from having to remove throttle body every time i wanted to change spark plugs lol and i think it looks cool any ideas??

Front Facing Intake Manifold = FFIM. They're generally custom. There's one real inexpensive one that shows up on eBay from time to time but I've heard mixed reviews and seen no data regarding it's performance. Reg Reimer (IIRC) makes them and has made them for a long time and probably makes the most popular units, but they are far from cheap. You will also need to relocate the alternator.
