    Potential DIY to come, additional "Ram Air Scoops"

    Well, i am in the process of gathering components for a fresh OEM front bumper. My car never had fog lights, but i have purchased a pair of used oem fog light housings. As a result, I have decided to put those fog light openings to use as "ram air scoops" for lack of better words.

    I have seen a thread about the brake cooling ducts that has given me the idea of using one, or even both openings, as additional sources of cooler air. It is still in the planning phases, but the mod probably will result in tapping into the intake snorkal/silencer.

    Before i proceed, i will continue to research the feasibility and see if it will actually benefit the car in reducing intake temps. Any thoughts or interest from mebers in this?

    Why?

    A turbocharged motor won't really benefit from "Ram Air" since the air must be pushed up against the compressor inducer anyhow...

    Furthermore, you can get all the cool air you need from the fender wells...

    Turbo Vehicles are still a new concept to me. As i have said before, i am so used to modifying N/A American V-8s, and need to get into the mentality that many things are different when messing around with Forced induction.
