Default Engine Swap starting - looking for some misc info

OK - not for a Turbo/SC - but have a few similar concerns, under-hood heat being one of them. I'd also like to find a particular hood:

I'm trying to find this hood:



The pic is from a company selling that flare kit.

And maybe adding hood vents like you see on Touring Cars - if I can find them:



Anyone able to point me to these?

AWR for the hood.

We have numerous threads on how to do hood vents, and that is not the lay-out you want on a Miata without supporting aero stuff you won't do.

Thanks - I didn't see the hood on the AWR site as an item to buy when I looked. I'll just contact them directly.

Thanks - Simpson doesn't have the greatest pics on the website, so I can't be sure.

This guy is a local Miata driver, he got this one second hand and is checking where it came from:
