Not even a tiny bit. Even so-called ram air hoods produce insignificant amounts of ram air effects. If you frequently drive over 80mph, it starts to have measurable effects.

You are correct about the ram air. It is pretty impossible to get actual "ram air" effect on today's vehicles because of the type of intake system on fuel injected engines. And to address the stock location of the intake...it is really a very good design. Pulling from the fender is the coolest area you can get without having an external source such as functional ram air scoops. The cowl at the base of the windshield creates a high pressure flow that pushes air into the fender thus creating an essential cool air intake source. DC didn't just decide to pull air from there randomly, they are engineers you know...

I've always thought many of the mods suggested are not that effective.
I am surprised about what you say about the cold air intake vs the stock set up. Is there a site I could read more about this design? Do all cars/trucks/ use the method you describe?
I remember seeing the intake for a Jeep Liberty (I think) and it has a small intake in the front grill.
