Can't wait to see what SEMA has in store for us in that dept. You know that SOMEONE must have something ready to go!
Where it loses in height or girth or whatever you want to call it it makes up in length.

Lets assume the mail-slot is 1 inch tall and 12 inches long. So

A= L x W
12in^2 = 1in. x 12in

Whereas if it was a more traditional circular ram air, etc. with a 4in. diameter.

A= pi x r^2
12.56in^2 = 3.14 x 2^2

It only has half an inch less area to bring air in.

btw, it would be to just supplement the air filter, it could just funnel into the air box. (yet still bringing in cool air)
