Default Functional ram air hood?

Hey guys. So last Saturday I was driving with my friends. Country road, yadda yadda. Well, there were deer in the road. not just one but 3. So, like any sensible person, I went between 2 of the 3 and got my car out with minimal damage (front driver side hood is dented down a little, and passenger fender has a small dent).
I was wondering about new hoods, perhaps a ram air hood. My hood has a bunch of scratches in it anyway, so I really want a new one and the deer added to it. Are there any functional hoods still for sale? MPD1 doesn't sell theirs so thats a no go.

TBH, it's not like it matters anyways. Running it to the air intake to make more power isn't worth the hassle, and it certainly isn't going to help with cooling that far past the radiator.

I wonder if it'd be worth it to cut a hole and try to make it flow directly on top of the supercharger. At least try and cool it down 10-20 degrees at highway speed.

Definitely not worth it. Unless you've got a phenolic IC or spacer, it's still bolted to the top of a 200 degree engine and will have 200 degree coolant in it (again, unless blocked off).

The real problem is the heat in the intake air isn't primarily coming from air picking it up as it goes through the blower - it's the fact that it's being compressed into the LIM with relatively poor efficiency.

If you really want a cool SC case though, meth injection pre-blower would work well.

Question. Has nothing to do with the hood, where’d you get your ls4 stickers on the side end fender near the wheel from?
