Air Scoops - Functional or Cosmetic?

I know this question will probably get laughed right off the forums, but I think it's worth asking...

With how much talk or air scoops goes on I am wondering if it is simply a cosmetic/mental thing, or if it truly does boost engine performance by funneling more air into the intake. I'm not looking for oodles of gain, but is there any functional benefit to scoops, or is it simply cosmetic?

Thanks!
