air filter location.

hi guys..
currently,i do my project which to improve the air induction system for in line
4 cylinder normal aspirated engine.instead of using air box i also put the bell mouth
in front bumper and then connecting it to the air box using hose and then from air box
to the intake manifold,the advantage is as the car running the air will flow faster to
the air box and then to intake manifold,perhaps i can increase the volumetric efficiency,
my question is in order to reduce the air restriction,can i put my air filter in the
air box which the air flow from outside will flow from inside of the filter to outside,
this is reverse from normal flow for air filter( suction air from outside to inside).
To anyone answer this, thank you.

Filter elements are generally designed to flow in one direction only. Flowing the wrong direction could cause the filter element to be less efficient, or even be damaged.
