    May be a stupid idea but worth a try asking if anyone has done this or thought about it... Would I get anymore performance if I fitted an induction kit surrounded basically in a heatshield, then had someone cut a hole in the bonnet just above the induction kit with a bonnet scoop fitted over the hole.

    Surely you should see quite a bit extra performance if the induction kit is protected (as much as you can) from the heat of the engine plus coldair forced induction directly into the induction kit from the scoop?

    Or.. instead of an induction kit, just using the standard air filter but cutting a hole in the top of the filter box with a small pipe going from the bonnect into the filter box? Don't really know which one you'd gain more from.

    well serviced car and quality panel filter or heatshield with k/n cone filter and cold air feed would give good gains

    cutting a bonnet open is a big no no

    Save up for heat shields and an induction kit then :p. When you say cold air feeds, do you mean making a modification so there's a better access for the cold air or just using the standard air feed?
