I know that everyone is trying to think of ways to get more air (scoops, filters, etc.) I was contemplating the effect that blocking off
the hood intake would have... Before I get flamed, wouldn't this actually have a beneficial side? Surely, at speed, there is more than enough air forced in from behind the grille & lower intake. Wouldn't blocking off the cowl duct provide a ram air benefit by not allowing this pressure to escape. I realize there may be some loss at lower speeds and maybe some additional drag. Anybody tried this? Am I thinking beyond reason?
