Does anyone know who manufacturers the Stainless Steel engine air inlet on the outside of the Alpine?

I calculate the 7" diameter rubber flex hose on the inlet side of my air cleaner has a surface cross section of about 38 square inches. The SS inlet has about 16 S.I. This tells me the louvered inlet cover is a flow restriction in my mind.

Since turbo charged Diesels like LOTS of air wouldn't our engine benifit from a larger inlet cover? Harold
