I agree the over the manifolds would be the most efficient. The vacuum effect is what "pulls" the hotter air out of the engine compartment so location is ideal but not necessary. I would love to have put mine there but with the hood bracing it was not feasible.
ok so I got me some new vents and trays form a great old buddy that worked with mopar, what is the location the factory 5.9 vents are placed ? aprox. meserments from font lip of hood and how far in from the side, I surf mostly from wk so I cant veiw pics posted thru the web(photobucket) and I have no spell ck they make u down load it and from wk I can not do that.
Take the hood insulation off. Than you can see the bracing for the zj hood Locate in between the bracing. This is pretty easily found. I located mine approx 2.5-3'' from the edge of the hood. Mine were angled cause of the hood lines. Go out and look at your hood take a picture if you have any other problems.

The air hat is the part of your intake assembly that bolts to the throttle body. On v8 grands it is the most restrictive part of the intake system before the heads. On ram trucks the hood height above the motor is greater allowing a much taller air hat to be used. With some minor hood brace trimming and/or spacing it up a bit.(another trick to help vent heat is to space up the back of the hood, but it doesn't look as good as vents).
Use insulating hvac duct wrapping(foil backed tape too) to wrap all fuel lines in the engine bay and the intake tube. Those can add a pretty decent amount of pep. The engine was initially programed to run without all the heat soak the fuel and air charge take up. Eliminate it and the motor will run much better.
With these tricks you'll all be mustang killing machines.
