MR2s and boxsters have front mounted radiators, their side intakes are to help keep air flowing over the engine for additional cooling. The Lambo was designed for a rear mount from the start so the whole shape of the car is aerodynamically optimised for it..

Unfortunately I had to sell the G50 when the chance to buy another car came up, mine was a late one so pretty long, best ones to use are the early ones as they are much shorter, you would still have to cut through the torsion housing tho' I ended up using the 1303s box as I really don't abuse my cars, plus I could move it forwards about 50mm by reversing the rear cradle and that gets the cam covers under the stock body.
