I really like how you incorporated it into the bumper fill strip. If Volant doesn't come up a good scoop solution, I will take your design and add my own twist to it. Being a Sport, I have a wider slot, so can likely benefit from that. I agree that the flex hose is likely to cause so restriction from air turbulence, but it may take so very creative ducting to do it otherwise.
This is creativity and resourcefulness at it's best, and has earned some well deserved
