6-71 / EFI throttle hat questions

I have a few noob questions.

I am building a 440 with a 6-71 blower and electronic fuel injection. I have nearly all of the parts except the "hat" commonly called a bug/bird/buzzardcatcher. All of the hats that I see for sale are either setup for mechanical fuel injection or are designed to sit on top of a carburetor. I already have a fuel injector plate that sits between the blower and the hat, so all I need is hat that works as a throttle body and looks good sticking through my hood.

Mechanical FI hats can be had for $500-600, but it seems like I am wasting money buying one and tossing all of the FI parts out.

This seems like a simple question but for some reason I cannot find the part that I need. Does anyone have a link to the proper blower hat for a 6-71 with EFI? I basically need it to just have a 6-71 footprint and function as a throttle body. I'd just make one from Pick-a-Part bits, but I need it to look good too.

Also, what does an air cleaner filter element look like for this setup? I can only picture what the carb filter looks like.

Thanks in advance!
