Reader Danny Z. sent this in with a barebones description - I'm no mechanic, so I can't tell if this is a joke or not. But that's Mario peeking out from an MR2 Spyder's intake.

Saith Danny:

i made a intake for my car. i thought i share. its made out of pvc. its pretty dam awesome imo

Honestly, the WTFery of this leaves me speechless. Full size is here.

Update: Danny Z. has written back!

hi, im the one who sent you the picture. i would like the clear something up lol.

the intake is fully functional. i used spray paint and sprayed the intake green. the car is a 2001 toyota mr2 spyder with a motor swap.

the engine is a 2zzge, same motor used in the lotus elise.

i put mario in the intake in hopes of a power boost. i only get a noticeable power boost when i run over the stars. otherwise, no power gain is achieved.
