I have been debating whether to cut up my air filter housing to make it an open element. I often hear that its not worth it because it will then be pulling warm air instead of cool dense air. Now, i have a 2" cowl induction hood on my K5, would this possibly help with it drawing cool air? I am thinking i will cut up my housing either way when i put on my J-code intake manifold, but i was just curious if the cowl induction could make a difference. I was also thinking of modding the housing to accept 2 snorkels, that were run up to the cowl induction vents in the hood. This would also act as a snorkel for water crossing as water would have to completely cover the hood and overtake the cowl. Would this possibly aid in performance? Or would it just be a waste of my time? I would think this would be the best route, even though it would be a little more difficult to make work so i could still open and close the hood freely. Any thouhgts?
