Absolutely.

Of all things, pedantry?

Dude, it was a joke. Regardless, thanks for the advice, I will upgrade my intake (of) knowledge. I do not know that the varying the length, diameter and shape of intake runners can move the powerband around (like increasing the diameter and reducing runner length shifts the powerband higher up and vice versa, law of diminishing returns still applicable) will make sure to study it.

At the risk of sounding like an armchair critic, (since the owner is not looking for throttle response during the drags,) don't you think a better place to have the intake would be either through the front bumper or at the top of the hood where it meets the windshield, owing to the fact that those 2 zones are at a much higher pressure than the middle of the hood? The height of that intake probably invites the high-pressure air, so it might be moot, but still.

Front bumper is too far away from the intake. Velocity will drop by the time the air reaches the throttle body.

The back of the hood, where the windshield begins, is BEHIND the throttle body. The airflow will have to reverse in direction, which would pretty much negate any effect.

Here's a pic I took. This is currently my wallpaper.

The fact that he is going against the wind means that the direction of air will have to reverse anyways. Secondly, and spare my ignorance about his build, but if he is still running the stock OHC manifold (his intake is leading to the centre of the hood, which is where the TB of the OHC is located) the air is probably doing amazing gymnastics just to get into the cylinder in the first place, and would negate the argument of velocity as the crap IM kills velocity more than any restrictive intake.

Does anyone have more pics of the hood?

That hood projection was initially planned for a new intake system which was for Ramming in a controlled manner and the contraption would pop over the engine bay (hence the projection on the hood). However with lack of time, it was not done. Its however true that, this will cause a reverse flow since, the intake was not facing the opening given on the hood. Effectively this will run like its running without a bonet lid . What matters most is that the car improved its time and whatever said, the car was faster.
Lets just respect the concept and the attempt in the right direction. I'm sure, the next drag this car will be a killer.

The intake is not stock. First thing on the Indian Vtec is to replace the intake manifold with a D series OE or aftermarket manifold. This car runs an Edelbrock.
