Oh and by cutting a hole in the hood i mean putting a hood scoop over the hole and making a real ram air, not just cutting a huge gaping hole and leaving it for rain to fall in. So here's the plan to make a ram air out of a hood scoop. hole in hood is the easy part, air comes in from front, down piping, piping turns into a ONE loop spiral for the air to travel downhill and then uphill. I'm hoping that this spiral idea will avoid any vaporlocking issues. drill a small drainhole in the bottom of the spiral to deal with any moisture issues. because air follows the path of least restriction (much like electricity) it will continue in it's path toward my intake manifold, hopefully without any adverse effects and making a nice little short ram air intake. My lack of pipe bending equipment leaves me limited to 2.5 or 3 inch PVC piping. i figure the air is going to be moving fast enough that I won't have to worry about cooling issues since the piping will be so short.
