There was a company that was selling them, but I think they went under. From what I have read the hood scoops are not in a good place for air flow to really bring in any cold air so this kit wouldn't really live up to it name.

There's the link.

My only concern with this (other than the fact that the hood may not allow "cold" air in) is that you are removing your radiator shroud, which will allow heat to get up there around the filters, so you'll be sucking in even HOTTER air than before, possibly.
I'd like for someone with an extra $360 lying around to give it a try though. haha

Thats what im talking about! someone please go buy one and try it out! if you really like it then all buy it off you.lol if you hate it then just post it... Anyways they made a new shroud that comes with the kit so im pretty sure that that blocks the air from the fan.:willy:

That looks like it should work. I saw an intake on this forum from Australia which was similar. The scoop looked like a metal oversized vacuum cleaner attachement. It attached directly to the throttle body and extended over and down in front the radiator and the scoop would be catch air in front of the radiator. I think it came with a replacement shroud.
I can't find that link or website now. These two intakes would seem to be the best if they work, because of the short distance for air to travel.

Gap, what gap? You mean the 1/4 inch spacing between the hood and headlight? I suppose it is sucking in air above the driver side headlight.

On my 05 there is a gasket from hood to core support and air intake is front of gasket and all GTOs Iv seen hood sticks out past fascia and there is large gap from hood to fascia that’s Intake. I bought a CAI and didn’t like it so went back to stock. I’m still looking for stock air box to mod. Should not be getting air from head light unless you modded something. Just open hood and look @ stock setup.

It actually looks as if it wouldn't do much at all. Yeah, it might get some colder air, but the whole purpose with "Ram Air", is to not only get cold air, but to straighten the air as it enters the intake system. This setup is a big box and, by looks, actually will force the air to make at least two bends of more than 90 degrees, very bad design. Its like your exhaust pipes, you want them as straight as possible to have the least restriction of flow. The big rectangle in addition to the bends will make more turbulence. To smooth the air flow, it would be better to have a round or oval pan surrounding the air cleaners. An even better design would place the pan further back on top of the intake manifold.

This picture is what a true ram air looks like:

Or this which is an even better design than the one above:

And the best Ram Air possible:

Is there a shot of the hood on that car, is it an 05-06 hood on an 04?

Because, depending on where the air inlet is, that may not be the closest thing to ram air, that may be Ram Air.

Yeah I did not see a shot of the hood on their site but it is an 04 for sure. Guess I will have to get that info from them. Anyone else that has done this mod or knows these guys can post up here.....Thanks......Gpr1200r.
