Finding a ram air system like that, without the hood may be hard, specially from the limited run GTX.

But GA GT ram airs are EVERYWHERE, and they don't use the hood

It gets it'* 'Ram' effect from that little slit between the grille and hood edge.

I still don't get how they manage to RAM just air on those hood ones, and not water (or bugs, sand, children.... but mostly the water). Do they have turns or special filters or something???

Most of those systems will trap and drain the water in the airbox before the filter. Remember that rain isn't a bad thing. Water injection has it'* benefits. Especially if you're not running a paper OEM filter.
