They suck under hood air, just like when taking the top off of the airbox. If there is a heatshield that seals to the hood, then they suck from behind the headlight, which is open to the left front triangle area and lower valance/wheelwell. Any that reuse the factory intake tubes get partial air from the whiskers area.
Looking at my modded airbox, the factory tubes get air from the whiskers, the 3" tube gets air from left triangle, the holes get air from behind the drivers headlight.
