    Bottom feeding ram air project

    So I've decided to take on a project, and I want your guys' opinion. I've been doing alot of research on the ssra's , the ftra's, and jaam. I looked at ls1tech and how chrs1313 and doubt it did their own "super suckers". My plan is : Seal up the air box using foam or weather stripping, fab jaam plate, and construct a sucker that sits flush with the bottom air dam/bumper so it doesnt stick out like an elephant trunk, while maximizing the air volume without harming engine cooling capacities. I have the nostrils de-baffled, with a lid n filter. with all these together ( sealed box, plate, and ftssra duct) what do you think my gains will be? Also, im wondering about that support between the radiator and the front of the car. I'm assuming it's been removed, but is it ok to remove it? it's that Y lookin thing

    Okay I guess I don't know much about the car, why not ram air through the nostrils?

    It's a ws6, so it's got the nostrils. I've got them debaffled. I'm looking to make a seal between the hood and the airbox. As well as all the fabbing.

    Okay, I would go that route instead of going under because my ssra picks up all kinds of debris.

    Not so much big stuff but alot of dust, it's a real bitch to keep cleaning my k&n let it dry between cleanings. It does the same if you don't have the ssra lower element

    I really think your gains over a stock box with a lid is not going to be worth all the trouble.
