If you get no feedback, you could try ( www.customcargrills.com ), they sell sheets of different mesh material. Also check the scrap bin, material available @ less than a whole sheet, a lot cheaper.
They may even do custom work, loose nothing by calling..

I am not sure what brand Super Snake/GT500KR style hood that is, with the pronounced center divider it looks more GT500KR than Super Snake, but either way, the original Super Snake and GT500KR hoods were wide open with no grills or inserts in the ram air openings.........I also have a TruFiber GT500KR knock-off hood and it has no R/A inserts. Maybe a BMC knock-off?

Super Snake and GT500KR hood differences shown below......

If your hood is Cervini and they do not make inserts for that hood, you will probably have to mod something for the openings.

Below is a low photo I took when I was changing my park/turn lights from Amber to Clear, it shows a shot looking into the opening. At the rear of the opening is a plenum which directs air to the CAI.............On the Super Snake hood, the center divider is set back into the hood opening and does not protrude past the opening.........



^^^^^^^^^^Some of the aftermarket hoods direct air to the CAI and some are more for looks and just have the scoops with no ram air functionality to the CAI, it depends upon the aftermarket manufacturer as to what they incorporated into their specific hood design....
