alternate idea

My problem is that one of the two front spots I would use for an intake is used up by a CAI scoop. So I am trying to figure out alternate options.

Anyone ever thought of trying something like the first pic below - strapping the scoop to the lower control arm? The pic is off a Mini but you get the idea.

I get that any good size road obstruction would tear it off. But, my headers are already way lower to the ground than these would be and they rarely hit anything.

I am also including a second pic that has a completely different approach to brake ducting - just a piece of aluminum that straps to the LCA to direct air into the wheel and towards the hub. Looks pretty easy to fab up. Any thoughts?

Thanks for any input guys. Y'all are great at bouncing ideas off of.
