the stock scoop is small and not high flowing. it does look nice though as opposed to no scoop. assuming you have the stock airbox or a Short Ram Intake
, assuming you have a large enough aftermarket scoop to make a significant difference in flow, and assuming you are moving, cooler underhood temps means cooler Intake
when you say route the air from the scoop to the Intake
, that may not be possible unless the scoop is on the left side of the car, or very low in the center. perhaps not aesthetically pleasing.
I doubt this will become a discussion on ram air lol. hope not rather.
