Larry,

Thanks for the idea. All the ducting to the plenum will be behind the radiator(non-functional & thin) and under the hood. It would be easy to add a flap with very light springs that would would close as speed increases.

Tom, I don't know if you read them or not, but I have some thoughts and sizing suggestions on air inlets on my site.

You can find them ( HERE ).

I also today added a spreadsheet to my site that uses the formulas in those suggestions to figure an air inlet size ( HERE ).

I would remember that when you read anything on my site you should always double check with a second source or so to see if you feel comfortable with the information before you use it.  This might be a good idea for anything you read. 

Hope this stuff helps a little,

Sum
