Just posting as I go and I'll edit to finish it up (assuming I can work through all the variables). I will be basing calculations on the Spectre P4 Cone Filter (Item#8132) at sealevel at 20ºC.
Bernoulli's Principle states that the faster a fluid is moving, the lower the pressure. Therefore, fluid in areas of higher pressure will move towards the lower pressure of the faster moving fluid, causing an increase in fluid velocity.
The standard density of air (p) at 20ºC is 1.2kg/m³
Bernoulli's Principle Formula  (p₁p₂) = [(p/2)(v₂²v₁²)] where p=density of the fluid, v₁ is the slower velocity (before bottleneck), and v₂ is the faster velocity (into throttle body).
Replacing p with d to differentiate between pressure and density. p₀ becomes the pressure of 1 atmosphere.
(p₁p₂) = [(d/2)(v₂²v₁²)]
At the surface of the earth air pressure is equal to 1.01x10⁵ N/m²
p₀ = 101000
d = 1.2
p₁ = [(101000p₁) = (.6)(v₁²0)]
.......v₁ = velocity of incoming air at WOT
p₂ =
v₀ = 0
v₁ =
v₂ =
Difference In Pressure
(p₁p₂) = (1.2/2)(v₂²v₁²)
(p₁p₂) = (.6)(v₂²v₁²)
The formula for the Venturi Effect is  Q = (A₁)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(p)(A₁/A₂)²1]} = (A₂)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(p)(1(A₂/A₁)²]}
where A₁ is the area of the pipe before the bottleneck and A₂ is the area entering the throttle body, and Q is the volumetric flow rate.
A 3" PVC pipe (3.5" including sidewalls) is already a squeeze under the hood so I'll use that over a 4" pipe for the equations.
NonBottlenecked
Q₁ = (A₀)√{[(2)(p₀p₁)]/[(d)(A₀/A₁)²1]} = (A₁)√{[(2)(p₀p₁)]/[(d)(1(A₁/A₀)²]}
Q₁ = (A₀)√{[(2)(101000p₁)]/[(1.2)(A₀/28.26)²1]} = (28.26)√{[(2)(101000p₁)]/[(1.2)(1(28.26/A₀)²]}
A₀ = Area of the filter x % of air flowing through filter
Bottlenecked
Q₂ will represent the amount of air entering the throttle body using the bottleneck.
A₁ = 28.26
A₂ = 12.56
d = 1.2
p₁ =
p₂ =
Q₂ = (A₁)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(A₁/A₂)²1]} = (A₂)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(1(A₂/A₁)²]}
Q₂ = (28.26)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(28.26/12.56)²1]} = (12.56)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(1(12.56/28.26)²]}
Q₂ = (28.26)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(4.0625)]} = (12.56)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(d)(.8025)]}
Q₂ = (28.26)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(1.2)(4.0625)]} = (12.56)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/[(1.2)(.8025)]}
Q₂ = (28.26)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/(4.875)} = (12.56)√{[(2)(p₁p₂)]/(.963)}

you lost me at working on the math.....

Re: Homemade CAI for 3.7?
Eventhought mine looks nice I like Pretacos idea more.
The aluminum is a big heat exchanger.
I got the tubing from a Dodge Ram 3.7 kit..i plan on a write up soon.

Re: Homemade CAI for 3.7?
^^^^I was speaking of the PVC intakes shown here. PVC isnt made for any kind of heat and will become brittle over time....
