Default Ram air set up

I have a 93 LX that was converted to be a track car. I am currently trying to put it back to being a cruise night street/strip car. The car currently has carb motor not fuel injection. I was wondering if anyone has used this universal ram air from Jegs.

You will not see any measurable gain in hp using something like that.

I will make no opinion on the looks but I will garantee. Inhaling engine temperature air will not make as much power as outside air.

As for how much? I'd say between 2 to 5 mph.

With a ram air that is that restrictive you will not see 3[5 mph. If you could get 3-5 mph out that thing every racer at the track would have one. If you are that worried about getting fresh air to the engine, get a cowl hood.

Already have a cowl hood was just wondering if the ram air would be worth it. From what I am hearing it isnt. Like I say the car has plenty of power for me. I have enough other things that I want to do that I could put that $ toward.
