Default Air cleaner location

Does anyone have any hard data as too the best location for the air cleaner for power development.

I had my cone filter mounted in the fender well via a 3" flexible hose but temporarily relocated it to the engine bay by the ABS pump after I ripped my fender liner off in a rally-x. My butt dyno now tells me that the car now feels more powerful, especially around 4000rpm but logic would suggest that it is now sucking warmer air.

who dat be dat was?


Well, I would imagine that having the straightest, smoothest pipe would increase air speed, but as for placement of the filter I would assume it depends on the physics of the individual filter.
