2004 GTO Custom Hood Idea

hey guys, just throwing an idea out there to see if its doable. I want to take a shaker scoop off a 6.6 T/A and make it function on my GTO. my question is can you reverse the intake and make it fit? is there a intake that takes a throttle body that sits on top, like a carb, or should I forget that and just make the shaker cosmetic. yes it will be complicated and need a lot of fab work but it seems doable. thanks in advance!

I guess no-one saw your post or they don't have an opinion. I know everyone has different thoughts about what they like but, why would you want to do that to a GTO ?

We have a SUPER nice one of these cars that is totalled at the shop right now. The parts are crazy expensive. I am thinking you may have good luck putting the hood on there like that one on ebay and selling your original.

If it will make you feel any better about your car, here's the one I was telling you about. $16K in damage and that's without disassembly for a complete repair plan. But it's a total loss so no need.
