    You'd sucking in hot air, the hotter the air the less dense it is. So economy and power will suffer.

    You ideally want to extend that pipe it outside of the engine bay.

    You need same size pipe as you have already and some rubber couplings. I'd imagine you need a few different angled elbows to get the pipe to go where you need it to go.

    So you're kind of doing as in this video but extending the pipe so its just sat outside the bay
