Default Just got 01 Trans Am; where to get FTRA kit and Ram Air hood?

I'm currently serving in Iraq and I just got back from my leave and while at home I bought a bone stock 01 Trans Am....It's a 6 speed and it just don't have the Ram Air...So I was on the GAFBA web site and a good bit of people recommended the FTRA kit....I was wondering where I could look for such a kit and also I still wanted the Ram Air hood...Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.....

Why are you in such need of ram air? Are you interested in the look that it gives on the TA? or are you looking for performance?

Fast Toys - they make a good FTRA kit

Hood wise, search around and see what you like. Raptor hood, ws6 style hoods, etc are all good choices

If you get the fast toys kit then the ram air hood cannot be made functional. If you get the ram air hood you can get the Brian green ram air kit that converts the ram air hood to being functional.
