1996 GT Hood Intake Ports

Just throwing this out there.

Is there a cold air intake kit that uses the intake ports on the hood of a 1996 GT (or other) hoods fake intake ports. I know they are fake, but is there a kit that allows the use of these intake ports rather than the standard cold air intake kits that are lodged in the engine bay of the car? I'd rather have nice fresh, cooler air vs. the hot air in the engine bay. I know they make kits that go through the inside fender, but I'd like to use the hood vents if possible, just because... :-)

Again, just putting this out there to see if I missed something somewhere?!

I believe Cervini's makes a functional ram air hood. You do know that doing it this way makes no actual difference, and is an inefficient use of perfectly good money, right? And also that there is really no difference between the various cold air intakes, in both power gains and also intake air temps? Just makin' sure, happy spending.

Hahahaha, YEAH... I'm one of those idiots that thinks, "Why the heck would they put fake intake ports when you could actually use them?!" Same with the brake cooler vents and so forth. Why put fake ones there when you can actually put them to use...

I doubt I ever will modify the hood/intake, but thought I'd ask if something was available in case I got a tick up my bum one of these days and decided to try and make them useful. I'd rather they weren't there at all so my mind didn't always wonder to as to how to use them!!!

With that being said, I'd like to delete them and actually make a cold air intake port right above the air cleaner box, but again, I doubt that would have much benefit over what's there. Again, just my overactive brain thinking, "What can I do to be different and make it work!"
