    Short Story is: Scoop sits in a low pressure, non ram portion of the air flow. It woulds pull air out of the engine bay- No increase in performance and it would allow contaminants and water into the engine bay from the top too.

    For more: search hood scoop.

    To be effective, a functional scoop must be located at a high-pressure area on the hood. For that reason, some functional scoops are located at the rear of the hood, near the vehicle's cowl, where the curvature of the windshield creates such a high-pressure zone, and may be placed so that their opening faces the windshield (a reversed scoop).
    The scoop will be most effective if it is either mounted high enough to clear the boundary layer (the slow-moving air that clings to the surface of a moving object) or if it is a "NACA duct," mounted below the surface and designed to draw the faster moving air outside of the boundary layer into the duct. A shallow scoop that is not a NACA duct may not admit a useful amount of air even if it is open.
    Under the hood, an effective scoop must funnel air into the engine's intake in as short and direct a path as possible, preferably through a tub or channel that is insulated against underhood heat.
    A scoop may be part of the hood, or may be part of the engine's air cleaner assembly, protruding through a hole cut into the bonnet. Such a scoop is called a shaker hood, because the scoop vibrates noticeably when the engine is running, especially under power.
