An aircraft pitot tube is about a foot long to pierce through the laminar flow and best practice is to place it at a stagnation point. On a car that would be the nose.

I don't know the velocities involved in the intake system. A tube smaller than the throat might make measurement difficult, else a bellmouth could gather more air.
