Question Air intake through a tunnel through the hood

Ok i was looking at the throttle body place on motor and i got the idea of making a tunnel air intake through the hood.
Something similar to this:


but with a hood similar to that with a single tunnel:



or maybe something shorter like Impreza hood like this:



What you think ? I want you opinion about air flow, look, etc... etc...

With the under-hood clearance on these cars you really need to channel the airflow to the passenger side and put the filter there unless you're willing to have a fairly large hood bulge/tall scoop so the filter will fit under it.

why not modify the cowling at the base of the windshield, its naturally a high pressure zone. ram air effect + better aerodynamics = win win.

since you have an SE, here's an idea i just don't have time and money to do. move the battery to the trunk, cut the face off the battery box and fiberglass a new box for ram air.

Check out "Blackrt1"s Intrepid, I believe he did this with a viper hood scoop...Still the best looking Trep ever in my opinion.
