Volant Scoop Question

For those of you with the Volant intake with the ram air scoop...

Why is there a hole in the bottom of the scoop?

What have all of you done with that hole?

Maybe to drain water if some gets in there? Is it at the lowest point?

Ive never really seen a Volant up close...

IIRC,
That's to run fresh air to that openning from just behind the fender or headlight.

Oh...
Is that right at the airbox, or up front?
Maybe I'm not thinking of the same thing you're describing.

I have the volant scoop. That hole is for running a pipe/tube to anywhere else you want to draw air from, such as near the front wheel or headlight or behind the grill. essentially you can make it like a cold air intake. i personally just left it there, as the whole reason i got the volant was to avoid waterlock
