    the hood is a ws9, a ws6 hood w/ heat extractors
    The Firehawk hood also has the heat extractors
    Blackhawk cars have the regular ws6 hoods w/ side stripes

    Maybe you are referring to the throttle body bypass?
    The engine coolant has a passage thru the throttle body. There is a way to disconnect from the throttle body & run aournd it, or bypass it. That way, hot coolant will not run thru, & it's believed the cooler running throttle body will obtain a horsepower gain. Not a really good proven theory tho, ...
    You can buy the kit on eBay for about $10+, for a couple fittings worth a dollar at your local hardware store.
