Aftermarket hood questions

I am looking to put an aftermarket fiberglass hood on my 2011 GT M6 Coupe.
There are 3 things that I am looking for in a new hood (besides quality, naturally):
1) Ram Air- I am talking about air from the hood scoop dumping directly into the intake box area- not simply cold air rushing through the engine compartment that aids in reducing engine temps
2) Gas strut compatible- I have a set of MRT hood struts that I would like to use- I did away with the prop rod a long time ago. Many of the hoods I have seen online state that they will not work with hood struts.
3) Must work with AeroCatch flush hood latches

Am I looking for something that does not exist?
Any advice would be helpful.

This is a pretty good looking ram air hood that should work with the aerocatch latch.

Cervini's makes a quality hood although not fiberglass.

And this isn't tech.

Cervinis hoods are typically not ram air though- even though that's what they call them.
They allow the air to flow over the engine.

Please define "tech", as this thread is certainly more "tech" oriented than many I see here. I am looking for a functional ram air hood.

I think you have to be doing 90 miles a hour for the ram air to work. The speed was ridiculous for the ram air system to function.

Cervinis makes a great hood. I think it would work with the latches and the struts. But it does not have the ram air scoop to the filter but as far as I've seen not many do. Click image for larger version

The trufiber A42 hood would seem to work since the hood extends out a little to give you a distinctive look with the scoop.
