Intake Air Temp & Eng comp venting

I have a stock 2013 V6. No mods
Ambient air temperature has been hot (85F) and the intake temp has been reading 38C. The intake must be getting lots of air from under the hood. (Even my Escape takes intake form the front, past the rad - a stock form of CAI.) I know a CAI may help but just wondering if the following would be a good idea.

The GT & Shellby have heat venting in the hood. Has anyone ever put vents in their V6 and did that help reduce the temp? Ford stock the Shellby and GT vents.

Will they mount in the V6 hood?
Is there a difference in the hoods that would prevent their install. Also are the vents "frenched" in or mounted on top of the hood?

Thanks .................

If I am not mistaken, you can take a 2013 and newer GT hood and bolt it directly onto your V6.
Intake air can be affected by a lot of things. Sitting over hot asphalt on a 100F day showed temps over 110 intake. However, driving showed temps closer to ambient air temp.

Venting

What I would really want to do to keep costs down, is to modify the existing hood. That would be by installing a vent (ie. the Shellby vent) in the existing hood. There does not seem to be a visual difference. Would like to hear from someone that has done it if possible.

Thanks............

Some dude on here (sanguin I think is his name) got a gt500 heat extractor put onto his stock hood!
