You seem a little insecure . . . . . if your gonna try and reinvent the wheel, you need to have a sound idea . . . . . . and if your gonna post pics of something that isnt a sound idea, then you have to be prepared to hear people go, WTH.
I'm going to have to second Shadow on this point.
There are sound and proven theories that are known to help the airflow in an engine. This information is posted here and on multiple places on the web. When you post something that is in direct contradiction to those know theories you should 1. be prepared for some ridicule, or 2. be prepared to back it up with some very good proof such as a dyno chart, flow chart, track times, or some other definitive measurement.
But when you make statements like, "but if it does make my car run lean at wot" with no information provided to say HOW you know it is running lean... (i.e. A/F ratio meter, AutoTap, reading the plugs, etc) your credibility really takes a hit.
As for the ram air setup you engineered/designed, I saw so many things that I would consider “not good” that I didn’t reply to the post out of courtesy. But since you’re bringing it up…
The number one issue that I saw was the flexible tubing. Air flow likes nice smooth, straight surfaces… Why do you think polishing ports in a cylinder head helps. The turbulence you created within that flexible tube would negate any extra density you might
(and that is a big might) be getting with the filter located within the wheel well.
But just my opinion. I just think you should both research and learn a little before posting something like you did, OR have a thicker skin.
