there are basically 2 types of Intakes
that takes in air from inside the engine bay is called shortram...no matter how it looks
that takes air from outside the engine bay is called cold-air...no matter how it looks
it doesnt matterr how many bends, what the diameter is, or anything else. its all about where the air is taken from.
so saying...if you could somehow make an Intake
that took air from the hoodscoop..it would be a cold-air. just hypothetical
