I have already done a search and didn't come up with much. My qustion is this, when a car does NOT have the typical hood scoops such as some of the GA's with a Ram Air set up how does it work?

Thank you,

The "Ram Air" set up is a gimmick. It's useless until you reach 70+ mph.

You would be better off taking all that crap out and installing a CAI.

I don't have it in my GA, I however have seen it a bunch of times and watned to know what difference it makes or more so how it works. Sounds like for the everyday driver it doest really work.

There are ducts routed from the two nostrils on the front bumper, to the air box. The factory hood with the scoops isnt functional.
