Question Perrin CAI w/ 2017+ Works Turbo Kit?

I'm getting closer to the date I take my BRZ to the shop to get tuned. Right now I've been double checking everything to make sure they receive a car that isn't totally botched. Aside from double checking torque specs, another thing that needs attention is the Perrin CAI. Due to the routing of the intake tubes for the Works Turbo Kit, there's no longer the flexible inlet hose that accommodates for the weird angle the Perrin CAI has. Right now its mated to the hard tubing that Works supplies you with for the turbo. Because its aluminum tubing, there really doesn't seem to be a whole lot of play, at least to my untrained eye it seems. So that this actually makes sense, Ill upload a few photos. What I would like to know is if it can be straightened with a little bit more finagling back and fourth? If the angle its at now has any effect on performance? And or if there my be a solution that requires a more proprietary component?

I cant stress enough that everything about this car needs to be perfect. For the people at the shop and myself included. Thank you to anyone who valuable information to add.

(Currently have Beatrush's bumper bar being overnighted from Japan to fully secure oil cooler)

With that low of a power goal, I'd start with a custom gear set and a highest final drive you can get to see where you hit. You'll also then be potentially bulletproofing your drivetrain.

I'd skip it and just go with a high flow panel and oem air box. Unless you really want the Perrin intake.

I would agree with the above statement. the CAI is not going to give you much if anything.
