Default Ram Air using hood scoop?

I was talking with a friend of mine and he was wondering if there was a way to make a ram air intake utilizing the hood scoop on my '97 Legacy GT. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Is it even possible to do this?

are you saying to use dryer vent to run from the scoop to the intake for a ram air? if so why not just run the ducting to the front of the car? it'd be shorter and less twisty... maybe i misunderstood?.?. an idea i was thinking about was to cut a hole in the fender(air intake side, where the hole from the snorkel that goes into the air box is, with the snorkel removed of course) and then make a scoop for that hole and put pvc/whatever pipe from that hole in the fender to the hole in the air box. you'd have a neat little air ram scoop for your intake and i think it'd look pretty trick too. i was thinking for the scoop you could probably get a side mirror off of an old capris and cut it in half for it.. i'd probably have to illustrate what i mean from that but i have an idea for it and think it'd be pretty easy to make a cool scoop from a round/tear drop shaped side mirror like one from an old capris(i think that's the car). anyway, sorry for the rant. had to get that out there...

i asked this before a few months back. the response that came back is that with the loss in the length of intake tract and the secondary airbox you will lose much of your torque.... something about air velocity.

Besides for true ram air you won't see any gains or pressure unless you're traveling in excess of 130mph or so.

not true you see it alot sooner but it is dependent on placement of intake and routing of hose
as early as about 50- 60 mph
