I have a source that could fab you one, but generally you would be looking at around $1500+ or so.

noone makes a ram air hood for a bonnie, functional or not. For the record, ram air is no more effective than a cold air intake for performance

Yes, all the GP intercoolers and performance parts will work on your car.

I have perhaps the closest thing to a hood improvement out there. I have functional vents near the cowl. The vents are from a GTA. We also installed a set in driverjohn'* car in December.
