Great idea - at this point you may have to contact some aftermarket custom/fabrication shops...

My question is what happens to the interior insulating panel of the hood when it rains? And where does the airflow go? I would love to get some square flow tubes that would direct the airflow to the back of the engine to help keep both the engine and the transmission cool.

They need something like the 'old school' MOPAR's that had a vacuum operated flap to open the scoop to fresh air - it could me adjusted manually if needed.
