Got Bored... Made A Custom "Ram Air"

So I had another one of my "Got bored so I made something out of metal" days today. I popped the hood on my Ranger and started lookin around. I found a random bracket that I decided didnt need to be there and replaced it with square tubng running from the passenger side of my grill to the airbox. Its sorta like ram air but not really. I figure at the least itll help me a lil with fuel mileage being able to get some fresh, cold air to the airbox instead of having to suck it in from behind the headlight . Ill try to take some pics tomorrow and explain what I did.
