amc49 Until the flex tube under the battery is changed to something that does not mix hot underhood air into your colder air, you are still running less than you could, matters not how good it looks.

Magus2727 The best ram/cold air was the Focus-Central Ram Air hood.



Most people shave the "dam" shaved like shown

amc49 My hotrod days are past but I built several ram air setups for drag cars. If I did cold air there I'd be going up through the hood instead of having all that ductwork in there.

You're looking for COLD air, not ram air, you get no benefit from ram air until over 100 mph and even then the ducting must be pretty straight.

Look here at pics...........
