Airaid Modification?

O.k. Bear with me it's kind of long.

I am modifying my Airaid intake and want to know if anyone think of a problem that might pop up as a result. I cut away all of the fiberglass in the front of the mouth, creating a ram effect, (similar to the Zoodad mod, only taken to the extreme). I then closed off the top, (the old opening), with clear lexan (SP?). For asthetics, I placed a polished Billet Ford Oval on the top of the clear Lexan, (it looks really cool). You can see the filter through the lexan, but it gets no hot air from the engine compartment. All of the air now is cool air rammed into the intake from the front.

Now to the next step. I am planning on using Technology from the PT-6 Turbo-prop intake on the Beech King air. I am going to cut a square hole on the bottom of the intake, and create a ramp on the top of the intake pointing towards the lower hole. This is called an inertial seperator. What it will do is force any heavier than air particles, rain, bugs, snow etc... to go through the bottom hole, allowing only clean fresh air to go into the filter. Sounds complicated, but it works great on Turbo prop aircraft for keeping FOD, (foreign object damage) out of the engine.

I guess I really have too much time on my hands. The intake looks great, and so far the ram air charge seems to be working great. I doubt it is creating much more power, but what the heck, it looks pretty "Hi tech". I placed a temperature gauge in the intake both ways and the temperature difference was 62 degrees. That has to make some kind of a difference. I am getting my camera back next week and will post some pictures.
