air intake feed

hi folks
have taken my mg zr td off the road for winter and want to do a few upgrades.
main one is fitting a new intercooler where the aircon rad was and then rerouting the pipes but I want to think about a straight air feed into the filter box from the front spoiler. so because the original feed which is situated behind below the headlamp then into a u bend seems to me restrictive.
so is it the mass of air or the force of air into the filter box which would help. I have perfect black mesh cover for front spoiler and car will only be used in summer months.

thanks for any help or replies

Lots of considerations for air feed.
The original isn't bad so long as it isn't kinked or fallen off (common).

So long as the air feed is as cool as possible and also not subject to lots of road spray/water then it'll be fine.
