That is a little obnoxious for my taste. Like others said, it would look better on something else.

I thought Dan'* hood was a little over the top when I first saw it. I don't envision you being able to see things front and right of your car. The kid in me thinks you get points for the balls to do it. The reasonable side of me sees what you are doing and there'* flashing lights and warning signs.

Are you afraid that it'll scoop so much air, it'll slow you down or push so much into the engine bay that it'll lift the car up?

Only way that I would accept it is if you made it cram air down the intake, not into the engine bay. That might be big enough to have a ram air effect at reasonable speeds.

exactly why i mentioned it...

i don't think it would generate a positive pressure, but it would certainly get back any vacuum generated by restrictions in the intake tract at WOT.
