This is from a fox body cougar website, but the hood hook-ups are the same. The tbird hood fits the cougar and vice versa.

If its a turbo coupe, you might want one with hood scoops. Mine used to overheat all the time, and probably still would but its totalled right now lol.

The scoops are used to route air onto the intercooler. With a front mount intercooler, the scoops would allow some hot air to escape from under the hood, but without the intercooler under there, they are merely for show.
If the intercooler was left in its stock location, some sort of cooling system (i.e. water jacket or cooling fan) would have to be used with the cooler if an aftermarket hood without scoops is used. If the intercooler is left stock and an aftermarket hood is used that doesn't allow air to the cooler, plan on having detonation and a blown engine, all for the low low price of having a cooler looking hood. <sarcasm...sorry

Personally, I think the hood in this pic is the shit, and could easily keep the stock scoops (or open them up a little?) to keep the intercooler functional.

www.car-part.com if you can't find it locally anywhere else. Lists prices and yard locations that have it. Everything down to the frame available. The insurance adjuster for my totalled car told me that's what they use to buy used parts.
