Turning the Street Edition hood functional?

Hey all. I'm in the process of ordering a CRAB system (got the itch already!) and I liked the thought of having a ram air system too. I looked at the MPD hood, and I like the look of it. My dad suggested turning the hood scoops on the stock street edition hood into a functional ram air system and I was just wondering if anyone had done something like that before. Any advice or words of wisdom are appreciated!

My Ride: 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP Street Edition

Installed: CRAB O3 and FPU, Black Altezza Tails, Black Eagle Eye Halos, GT-R Exhaust, 93 Octane WAMS tune!
On Order:
Eventually: Brembo rotors/calipers for the front, SS rotors/calipers for the back, Racingling Strut Tower Bar, Racingling Motor Mount Inserts, coloring for the interior and under the hood, new summer wheels/tires, new winter wheels/tires, new badges, and painted calipers.

i think I answered you on the other site already...but there are structural braces behind
the vents so even if you took the whole vent out not allot of air would get in there.

You would have to fiberglass or tunnel it over to your intake.

I saw a camaro with a ram air hood. All they did was pop rivit a panel to the underside of the hood with a dump over the airbox. It didnt look bad.

Something like that might work....if you feel like fabricating something up....?
if I could find a GXP hood Id give it a shot.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

You did, but thank you! I appreciate the insight. I'll talk to my dad and see what he has access to at work and see if we can work something out. Might just end up going through the lower grilles though.

I came across the Tiger Crab! Looks like a neat invention but I don't know if it's what I'm going for necessarily.
