Default Functional Sport Performance Hood?

I'm posting this here as it covers both exterior Mods and performance Mods.

I really like the look of the Sport Performance Hood but I'm trying to find something... anything on if there is a kit that makes it functional? By functional I mean a CAI type kit either custom or manufactured.

Help!! Please!!!

I know a while back they were working on something for the Chally's...since they basically have the same hood, might start looking there and see what they have.

If you remove the hood liner/insulation you'll see that there's hood structural support cross members right at the fake vent locations
I wouldn't recommend cutting into those...for obvious reasons. The hood only weighs about 20lbs without hardware.







They are no where near large enough or located well for an intake air source ...sorry, I was hoping for better too
They should refer to it as the Sport "Appearance" Hood , not Sport "Performance" Hood LOL!

Looks like you could fab up some lightweight aluminum ducting to push some air over the exhuast manifold/header area. I bet you could drop underhood temps by 20*, that ought to be good for 3-5hp alone.

Underhood temps are only Hot when parked or stopped at a traffic light
as soon as I start moving, my IAT drops 20-30.

Hot air actually Rises and it's more likely engine/exhaust heat would be trying to escape through those vents rather than cold air forcing it down.

It's a lost cause IMHO, and the best way to get more cool air
is to Ram It! from the Front and port it into the AirBox from below...like here:







Removed the goofy looking "fake" lower grill from my Sport Bumper
..it didnt match the black honeycomb anyway..and looks better gone!
