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.
Just my opinion,I'm not pushing you.
Air has no problem to increase speed ,but get a lot going against a pressure increase that can be found whenever speed decreases.
It's not the same case,but the most drag in a wing profile is caused by boundary layer separation.
I think that the best designed air duct in the modelling field are those found in Violett kits,take a look at them.
