Forced Induction Gurus, a Question...

With no aftermarket help, I decided to supercharge my Tempo. It's been running for a while with a crude "blow-through" arrangement. This system, though simple, is very noisy at all times. Response is good, and power gains are VERY noticeable over stock.

So, I'm considering switching to a "draw-through" setup instead. The changeover won't take long, as I have nearly all the parts needed, and can fab the rest.

The question is; will it affect throttle response? If so, how much? Will it be undriveable?

I believe it will reduce throttle response, as the distance between the throttle body and engine will be greatly increased, but I thought I'd ask around before I went further. I can deal with a slightly more sluggish throttle, but if the effect will be considerable, I might rethink it.

Here's an MSPaint masterpiece depicting the tried & true (but obnoxiously noisy) current setup, and the proposed layout. The blower is mounted to the lower front of the engine, in the spot formerly occupied by the A/C compressor. Pics are at the Cardomain link in my sig. Any advice would be appreciated.

The pics below depict (poorly) the engine from directly overhead.
