Ram Air Intake

Thinking of building my own ram air intake that sucks in air from somewhere underneath the truck. i know some of you have done this but i was wondering if you guys could post pics or let me know what you did and what materials you used. i have a cold air intake that im looking to direct more air into.

Not sure if it would work

Im not sure if it would work but i think the best place for it would be in front of the radiator. It would require some cutting but would be the bast place to get the most cold air.

I know the air is flowing from fender to air intake box through an air pipe.

My questions:
1) How does the air flow to fender? Where does the excess air go?
2) Fender will get hot after a long journey meaning the air will be hotter and less oxigen, hence less power?
3) The air inlet pipe is about 2"-3" and the air pipe to turbo is 2"-4", when the turbo kick in, the air suck by the turbo will be faster than the air generate from 3" inlet pipe, hence power drop & FC increase?

He meant Emmanuel's sig. It's constructed with in-line code, not using the forum's software. So yes, it appears when you don't want it in a quote. It's also triggering my spammy sense to see a newb with such odd questions have that kind of sig.
