I decided to make some engine scoops, but not anything that you can see from outside.....

ALL for less than $20 in parts from Home Depot hardware store.


Soon as I finish getting the bus back together, I will post results of my air pressure tests with aquarium tubing.


That screen will block 1/2 of the incoming air and you need a scoop at the end to ram more air in also.
