modified hood for GTi-R

i am doing a GTi-R swap soon and i was looking at the intercool and started wondering if there was anyway that i could buy/have someone make a hood with a small scoop (kinda like the subaru wrx but not as big) to get more air to the top mount intercooler. can anyone give me any information. are there products out there or if i have to make it who could i call?

intercooler

don't bother with modifying the hood, If you move it to the front of the car you'll have much better performance, other wise the engine just makes the intercooler hot.

I would rather have people seeing my front mount intercooler than a hole in my hood, but thats just me.

Intercoolers are YUMMY!

Well,
Mark under the hood where the intercooler is. Then get any style hood scoop you like off any car or aftremarket part. Then remove your hood, cut the hole, attach the scoop, and repaint the top of the hood.

im in ohio. i act. just got off the phone with him and we decided to do a bluebird instead. since the intercooler from the GTi-R wont fit under the hood, i cant go with out it and i dont really have the extra coin to purchase aftermarket. i think they go for a grand or something. im not sure if im gonna have him do it yet. i might do it myself. depends if i have the time in the summer to install. plus if i know what the hell im doin haha.
