Air intake/hood insert modification feedback wanted

Forgive me if I'm in the wrong place. I'm new. I have a 1996 3.8 V6 and was wondering, could I remove the freeze plugs from the upper plenum and run a couple tubes from the two plug spots to the Hood inserts to act as a sort of cold air intake? I've heard they would both need MAF sensors and some kind of rain guard or drain but I'd like to hear some other opinions before I go and try this.

you are correct, you would be essentially introducing two rather large vacuum leaks. the engine needs to know and regulate exactly how much air is getting into it. so your proposal wouldn't really work.
