High Pressure/ Low pressure

I wanted to post on this site as I felt more technical knowledge here than the usual car forums.

Front fed induction.

I want to learn about how the low pressure zones can vary within engine bay all the way to and into a intake manifold.

Would A be better because air can flow right into and up to the intake filter without zero obstruction.?

Or B is better because the filter is close to the high pressure zone therefore will flow through quicker.?

If there's a throttle plate in there somewhere and you're going less than WOT and 150 mph, don't worry about it.

B would probably be better because whatever the device is its going to cause some amount of resistance. So any low pressure would be spread over a larger area resulting in slightly higher pressure than A.

Testing would give you a much more solid answer.

There will probably be zero effective difference for the speed/load/RPM regimes that we generally care about. (E.g., 2000 RPM at 80% throttle.)

But again, testing it yourself would tell you.
