well as an engineer he should know that he is always gonna split the exhaust when in burner, the engine produces too much thrust when in full burner adn will always rupture or split the material unless it is manufactured to open more than what it already is. as for having the intake inside the vehicle, it cant be that fun, im sure the first stage compressor fan blades are creating a serious howl since they are spinning at almost mach 1 at full power, then also pulling so much air that he can probably bearly breathe. i know this since i worked on and around jet engines for 6 1/2 years. just to tell you how much air a turbine engine can suck in, the G.E. F110 in the F-16 at full power or 100%, is pulling 280 pounds of air a second, too much for me to want o be in front while it is running. now i know this isnt an F-16 engine, but still it pulls air like you wouldnt believe. anyway, sorry for the rant, but this guy in my opinion is crazy for putting that engine inside the car.

It's interesting.. and would catch my eye in person for a short period of time due to its sideshow type qualities. But... in the end, it's not practical, and has several downsides. Probably would give me a chuckle or two by the time I was bored with it.
