I considered that, but then it sucks all that heat into the cabin. The intake for the climate control is at the base of the wipers.

have you tested the flow on these with the tubing connected?

I'm having doubts how good it'll flow at that weird angle.

Well, since the air that gets trapped in the scoop has no where else to go easily, it'll go up the tube, It'll work man.

The problem is getting the air to turn 75 and go up, right?

The surface area of the scoop is 12 square inches.
The surface area of the chase nipple is 3.14 inches
4:1 ratio. I have another idea to help turn the air too. A scoop within the scoop

It'* not ideal, but it will flow better than a 2" pipe mounted frontally. I haven't done the math yet, but I'm betting it will flow as much as a 3" pipe.

Well hurry up and do the math so you can pimp the results around, what have you been wasting time on?

If you create a cone that runs from the back side of the inlet to the scoupe you should beable to get good flow, make it out of tin or somthing easy to bend.

You obviously aren't familiar with the lower airdam on the SSE/SSEi chassis. It'* not possible to come out the back.
