Post Ram air induction

I know I'm new here so I did a quick search and turned up nothing major on this subject. I was wondering if there has been or is any interest in turning the larger hood scoop into a ram air design. If done properly there would only be a half of an air box to design and then open up the scoop. The major concern would be for the water to drain before getting to the airfilter. I'm about to design a new airbox for my new GT1 G60 out of foam so that I can have it made from CF. I have yet to even order my RS but this thought has gone through my mind ever since I saw the hood scoop and even more since I saw the intake location right under it. Tell me your thoughts on this matter. Frank

Well, you didn't search enough!

There's been lotz of experimentation of using the hoodscoop and half an airbox for some sort of ram-air induction. Both with some success and failures. Look around some more -- you'll find it.

For 101st time ... Just kidding, I don't mind sharing. This setup has worked well for me. I don't recommend it for an afternoon of puddle jumping, or freak snow storms like we had in Denver today :}. I swapped mine back to stock, needless to say. Here's the link:

Enjoy! Gary

I'm currently working on a ram air intake also using the center scoop. I will be trying to deal with the rain issue a little more, but it might just be a summer time only intake. I'll post pics when it is done.

You will find that it is a little easier (and you don't have to change it when the weather turns bad) if you just use air from in the fender. Just my opinion, I have tried just about everything and this has worked the best for me.

P.S. Just for future referance, this should have been posted in the newbie or powertrain forums.

My favorite reason for why we should be happy the WRX is coming to the USA was from Kelley:

"To put an end to the ram-air scoop ideas".

Have a Nice Day?

Let me say that I understand the problem with FAQs by new people. I am a 5yr owner of a Corrado and have loads of info on them. I have also been on VWVORTEX for a while and also get tired of repeat questions. But easy up little bit. I'm new here and have decided to just watch for the next couple of months so that I can bring my knowledge level up to par.
Personally I don't want another forced air induction car like the WRX. I want a daily driver that need lows maintance. I'm even thinking I'll keep it stock so "IF" I ever sell it people will love it for being a cherry 2001 RS. I know that a stock 1994 Corrado is a dream find. But being an enthusist I always say what if, I can do that or this. I hope I haven't ruffled any feathers here with talk of all stock, the non-subaru vehical referances or FAQ.

I hope that you didn't missunderstand my intentions. I didn't mean to flame you, I wouldn't do that to someone asking a question. It is important to ask in order to learn. I just wanted to let you know where the post should be. If I hadn't said anything the moderators probably would have, might still even. Welcome and feel free to ask all the questions you want, thats the primary function of the bulletin boards.

Take a look at my setup - http://8complex.mwic.org/intake/

Also, I believe brucelee had a good ram-air setup in his car as well.... don't remember where his page was tho.

Seem like a pretty general question to me.

Ram air as a comncept is kinda worthless. However, cold air intakes are great.

The scoop on the impreza, with the HUGE area might make ram air possible too, but on MOST cars a ram air intake is worthless over a cold air intake.

SO I would reccomend looking for cold air first, clean intake design next, then ram air. One or two of the designs I have seen on this site should work quite well for what you want.
