Bear with me on this as i may have to put my flame suit on, but i have a Vn commo for a paddock basher only and have had bit of an idea for a new intake.

Would this idea work/be worth it at all?

1. Buy biggest pod filter i can find
2. Remove airbox
3. Cut 3'' circular hole in the bonnet right where intake pipe ends
4. Get some flexible intake pipe ( which i have)
5. Join one end under bonnet to the intake
6. Attach to the pod on the outside of the bonnet.

Being isloated from the motor completely and getting hammered with cold air when being driven means it should be slightly better right? This is more for sh!ts and giggles than anything, and i do realise this is highly illegal for any other car not to mention quite dodgey.

Don't do it in a dusty environment otherwise it will clog quick!

Haha might chuck up some photos when I'm done. Hope it whistles, without a bonnet you can hear the panel filter whistling haha.
I guess its better than leaving it chilling in the engine bay getting some nice hot air.

why cut the hole at the front of the bonnet, when you can cut it at the backand not have to run air through the intake pipe?

If i cut it at the back, im assuming you mean near the TB then how will i mount the pod on the outside of the bonnet? And what advantage will it have running a shorter air pipe?

You should theoretically get better flow due to less bends in the system and the removal of that shitty plastic intake piping. The difference probly immeasuable
