Well its kind of a catch 22. You either do it the way I do, or the way you suggest. Either way you end up with a problem. If you do it your way, the entire intake would have to be roughly 130% of the FSA. And once the air got to the spinner section, there would be an abrupt change in area and velocity. Or you could start off with a 100% FSA intake and then go to the fan dia. But then your going from small to big to small again. The would be two changes in area and velocity. I know that many won't agree with me and that O.K. I would rather try it my way and see what happens, than just say it'll never work.
Any ways here are a few more pics to help you guys sleep at night. It's 2:10a.m. and I think I'll be heading off to bed now.

The whole project so far. And what a hot sexy project it is :D
close up of the tail section and top pedal. After three hours of messing around trying to ACAD to loft it. Eureka.
Another close up from the top.
