So I just read this entire mega thread. Looked quickly under my hood. There is a giant cavity between engine bay and driver fender. Any reason we couldn't just drawl fresh colder air in from that area? Not sure how you'd get a filter on it but an oval shaped hose into that area would provide more and cooler air for sure.

Anyone tried something like that?

I was thinking something to supplement the front snorkel, not replace it. I wonder what kind of CFM you are getting through the smushed ends going into wheel well. Did you cut an opening the plastic wheel well shroud as well?

They’re each 3.5” hoses feeding the 2.25” intake tubes. And yes I cut an opening in the fender well liner to let in more air.
Intake temp is ambient once you get moving but it doesn’t take long to heat soak when sitting still.

I think the trans cooler in the driver's side fender would heat the air when your not moving.

The fender well is kinda split into two areas by the bumper mount.
