I had a 98 TA I Ram Aired with a Sun Coast Creations hood, and a 2002 WS-6 RAM Air....
Why would you want to channel the air to a side mounted intake? Does that not defeat the purpose of the Ram Air? It creates a restriction of air flow..... I see even the SC hood for the 5th gen is side discharge.
There is no water issue on the 4th gen Ram-Air, Both my Raptor hood and the OEM GM W-S6 hoods has baffles to keep water out.
SC Hood- 5th gen
Intake Box for 4th Gen
Or is it that there is just no room on the 5th gen for the air box in front?
