For the 1972 model year, was there a Ram Air designation of any type?

I cant find any mention of Ram Air in any documentation I have, however even in the GTO Red book, that doesn’t make any mention of Ram Air anything, the example picture of a 1972 GTO has Ram Air decals on the hood. Was it part of the 455 HO package?

Was it just a hood and air clearer package?

Thank you

My restoration guide says it was code 601 UPC WU3. It was the same, and available as an option for 1971-'72 on 400/455 engines and standard on the 455 HO and the 1971 Judge option.

There is a baffle plate under the hood which the special twin snorkel air cleaner seals to. The hood for '72 used either white or black "RAM AIR" decals depending on body color. 1971 offered the decal in red as well.
