you could get a fiber hood and add this
Catalog > SCOOPS > Cowl Scoops

or goodmark makes the scoop in steel
Goodmark Steel Cowl Induction Hood Scoops SCOOP03 - SummitRacing.com

Goodmark Steel Cowl Induction Hood Scoops - SummitRacing.com

and cut up another hood

Just a old guys trick is to put some spacers between the hinge and the hood to raise the back of the hood a bit to clear the engine..Easy to do and easily reversed if needed..
