This is the response I got from Thunder Racing regarding the SLP & Fast Toys "RAM AIR SYSTEMS" on SS and WS6 hoods:
The only reason we donít recommend this kit (or the Fast Toys for that matter) on the WS6 or SS is that you have to block of the functionality of the ram-air hood in order for this system to work. Basically, it defeats the purpose of your ram air hood.

In all the testing we have done personally and testing done by drag racers, the stock ram air hoods have shown no performance gains over the non ram air cars (ie. the hood is not making any more power). The factory hoods are not sealed to the air box and also contain water drain holes and baffles. They also sit too low on the hood. Because of this, no pressure can ever be achieved (in stock configuration) and air flow is very poor.

What? Functionality of the ram air hood? They aren't even true ram air hoods! The hoods aren't sealed to the air box and no pressurization occurs. Our cars are bottom feeders and the hoods are just for looks basically. If you want to utilize the ram air hood, you have to cut out the baffles and seal it to the air box. Functionality of the hood....LMAO!
