there is no such thing as funtional ram air. all there is is trying to get the coldest air possible.. the only way to "ram" air is with a supercharger or turbo

ok im on alota pain pills from my back injury sorry for the spelling screw ups. but i saw a airbox that fits under a aftermarket hood. that will make your hoodscoops like direct air intake.... did i misunderstand what i was looking at???? or......

ok read a lil bit more one them
so a hoodscoop will just help cool my charger a lil bit better.
and the fwi or cai w/sheild is pretty much what i want???

thanks agian and sorry for the spelling i just edited for more spelling. and i know i still missed some.....

the hood scoops work on a THEORY that you can force more air into your motor, but you can not compress the air going into the motor at any reasonable strret driven speed (150+mph) The horsepower gained by using hoodscoops in a "ramair" set up is by getting the coldest air possible into the engine, by drawing it directly from outside. In my opinion, you wont see much of a temperature difference between a "ramair" and a FWI set-up, however i have no hard data to confirm the temperature difference

yep i understand both your points of veiws. so a fwi is a: cheaper then the ones that hooks up to a hood scoop and b: theres realy no gain in hp or colder air inducted.

thanks agian.

there is a potential of cooler air to be gotten from the hood scoop, but i dont beilieve that it would eb enough that it would make a considerable difference

You'll have to be constantly moving at highway speed to maintain cooler air ( IMO ) with hood scoop. In city or rush hour.. I think it would hurt it.. you now have the heat radiating from your hood heating up the air into the intake.. and the hood is also being heated by the engine that its covering.. ( no hard evidence ) but my guestimate is that heat radiating off the road would be less then wat you would get from the hood.. and you dont' really have to worry bout driving fast to try and cool the hood down after city/rush hour traffic. Another thing to consider is wat happens in a down pour? U'll have the potential of sucking in a lot more water then FWI <-- unless you went swimming and or hit a huge lake on the way
