If I understand you you want to relocate the air dut that feeds air to the CVT? Youc an do it, but I wouldnt trap it int he engine compartment. If what your saying is you are going to run it to a vented/mesh opening then you should be good!

The duct that exits in the front of the motor is the CVT exhaust. It is originally ducted to the rear of the engine to cool the header area. If you removed all of the bodywork and such in this area, there should be sufficient air flow back there so you can get rid of the long duct that goes over the motor.

Most all that have a dry clutch, do not have a CVT cover, no issues.

Opening up the whole front end is a good idea, especially if there is no radiator up there, otherwise all the radiator heat will be blown by the motor and intake.

Cupholders in that console would be easy. Just slice off some aluminum tube and weld one end shut. Drop it in a cutout. I keep thinking I would like to do something like this with a fan built into it
