There is one thing that I did forget to mention, and that is the noise factor, you may find that this may be rather noisy, induction noise can be quite loud, what I would do if you are really keen to try this out, I would go to the wreckers and get a cheap usable spare bonnet and try you idea with this and if it works and not to noisy you can attack the good bonnet, best to have a test bed to play with than damage the final job with mods along the way. Remember ram air is just a term, you will not actually be boosting air flow like a turbo, this will give you cool air that is slightly denser (depending on atmospheric conditions) the benefits if any will be derived from this and not the fact of scooping outside air, the air filter will still dampen any ram effect, (turbos are after the air filter) you may have seen some cars with reversed shakers, (air scoops pointed back wards) this is just to eliminate the problem of dirt and bugs and junk blocking the filter, you will still get cool air this way but less road muck causing problems.
