Question Custom Air Intake for Spi?

Hey, I know i've posted stuff on questions about air intakes before but pls bear with me i'm just trying to learn all i can before i do something i may regret. I have an spi and i went to the focus meet last weekend in daytona beach,Fl and there was one guy there who had an air intake on his spi. I know it's hard to find parts but i can't get a zetec so i got an idea. Autozone has parts to make custom air intakes by spectre so i thought since the best air flow comes from less bends in the piping why not just make a 3" straight stack from the throttle body an throw a k&n air filter on it instead of curving it like other intakes that go where the box use to be, that way the air has less distance to travel. has anyone tried this and will it work?

I was also gonna equip a electric supercharger in the intake it's suppose to give on average 3-5psi and it comes with the k&n filter and performance chip/ reflasher. The web site is superchargertuning.com they have on for the focus spi and it only opens at WOT so the engine doesnt blow. has anyone tried this or something similar. Im on a $750-$1000 budget. thanks in advance.
