Cold air feed with standard box??

I'm using a panel filter at the moment and was wondering if it would be worth fitting a cold air feed to it? It would come from the bottom mesh on the bumper and up into a cut hole in the bottom of the standard air box.
I want to do this as i don't think the standard air intake pipe is up to much.

Would it make a difference at all? Or would it just be a pointless mod? lol

Pretty pointless really. You won't gain anything from doing it unfortunately

How much cold air does the standard pipe take in then, being behind the bumper?

More than enough for the standard engine set-up.

Bear in mind to actually fit a feed into the lower bumper mesh you have to chop your bulkhead away too unless you squash the pipe in the gap between the radiator and bulkhead.

Ah well, i'll probably not bother then. Mine is pretty much standard apart from the vvc inlet.
