everyone wants a real scoop, everyone thinks that RamAir is better than ColdAir... the only point that a ram air setup is worth customizing over a CAI is when you are at speeds of over 100mph where the vehicle is moving fast enough to actually force the air in past what the engine is already sucking on its own.
Or, move the scoop to the hood.
