If a WS6 hood scoop is teeny tiny then any "RamAir" benefit would be teeny tiny and the drag would be a negative teeny tiny but the end result would be the freakin same!
Soooooooo, you're saying that those big scoops don't do any good? You better tell that to all the Pro-Stock and other class racers out there that have been using them sucessfully for decades.

MY point is, I'm not argueing the fact that you must account for the drag in the overall equation. BUT, MY MONEY says that the effective HP increase provided by the scoop to the engine more than outweighs any drag penalty from the scoop. The HR test you used to make your point does NOT prove anything regarding potential benefit to the engine output.
