Jack ,you have hit on it, ramming air into a carb directly changes the fuel to air mix, it is also problematic going one way with a slight breeze then with the breeze, the solution is to baffle the air from hammering into the carb.
In the 1960's and very early 1970's nearly all of the American muscle cars had some version of ram air/cold air induction. I believe that the air cleaner took car of the baffling into the carb. From the factory all of these cars ran very well, at least for a 1/4 mile and never seemed to lean out.
