    This is similar to my design actually where i got the idea i just ran it through the side of of the CAI with tubing instead of the top. The tubing runs along the edge of the engine compartment to the back and up the hood. It provides significantly more airflow than this design

    You realize the scoop is in a Low Pressure area of the hood, right? Air wont be "Forced" in.....

    How do you keep water and debris from getting in there?

    the purpose built X-Runner (made by TRD) was originally built using the scoop as a functional one for their intake on the 1st prototype TRD S/C.

    And they used an OEM hood with no major modifications to it. I can only imagine they moved away from the design as it wasn't efficient enough.
