It would really depend on the scoop and if you were to draw directly from the vent. A cowl hood would extract more heat at speed but you'd still be pulling under hood temps at low speed/idle. A completely sealed hood scoop to inlet tubes would be best, but making that happen is much harder and you're more prone to pulling water into the intake unless you have a system that baffles and traps/drains water before it can reach the filter(s).

Making it happen would be very difficult or expensive unless you have the fab skills yourself as a hood would have to be custom fabricated.
