Converting short ram into cold air intake.

Well after last summers track day and the heat soak I experienced I thought it was time for some cooler air in my intake.
Did some research and found that a decent cold air intake will run me $150 at least.
I already have the Steeda short ram intake.
So I am now thinking why not get a old hood from the junkyard and cut a hood scope in it. I know it will probably look like crap, but i don't really care since I will only put it on for track days.
Do you guys think that this would yield the same gains as a cold air intake?

same if not better. i say that because you will also be cooling the entire engine bay.

i saw one time a civic with it hood cut and the cone sticking up thro it to, wouldnt be hard to do. you could almost just trun the SRI you have upside down and then cut the hole in the hood.

I was actually thinking about making a bit of a shield so all of the air through the hood scope will only go into the intake almost like a ram air intake. Don't really wanna let the filter stick through cause I still want a clean look. I was looking at something like THIS
Also should I be worried about getting water sucked into the intake when its raining?

I just solved this problem myself. I bought a rousch scoop kit. I had the body shop to cutout the superman symbol section of the hood and mount the scoop. I now have a functional ram air hood. It wasn't a cheap option, but it works. Good luck!
