hey, i have the challanger hood on my truck and ive seen the "funcional inserts" which only put air into the engin compartment, but im looking for a true ram air, has anyone looked into this or tried it through a customs shop?

yeah i can get them...ive brought it to a custom shop, but they do it by the hour and couldnt give me the slightest idea on cost...right now, i can buy inserts that push air into engin compartment like thechallenger SRT8 but ends up no where near the air intake

Shaker hood?

I saw a truck in this book I recently bought and read (see related post) that had a kit installed for a true shaker hood scoop. This is where the scoop is affixed to the top of the engine and it sticks up through a hole cout out in the hood... Retro and very cool! However, I am not sure he got a true ram-air effect as the air was routed over to the side and down to the stock intake system...

If you take a look at the aftermarket hoods that are functional and direct the air to the intake area they have only one outlet. The hood have chamber where all the air from the scoops collect and it all goes through to the hole that is near the intake. I dont know how to explain it but its like it has a second ducted layer of fiberglass (or steel) under the actual hood which brings the air to the intake.

Here look at this site they show you what I am talking about hahaha:
