RE: Air Scoops
I've also thought about this. There was an article & picture in a Central
States (about January) that had a top-scoop LongEZ. It didn't look too bad
and it certainly had straight air flow.
The question for me is: this moves the scoop from a high pressure area to a
low pressure area and the top seems to be more critical for smooth flow.
Does someone out there know more about the physics here?
