Default V6 Hood Swap

Call me crazy, but I want to put a 2004 V6 hood on my 2004 GT. I just despise the look of the big, fake hood scoop both from outside and from behind the wheel. But specifically I want a hood with the small, rearward facing scoop.

ANYONE have an OEM part number for this? Preferrably with a pic just to make sure we're all on the same page.
Or even better, does anyone want a trade?

Thanks!

lol...The front bumper was the biggest mistake of my life. In 2006, it rained in Oklahoma for the first time in 45 days. The ensuing slurry of mud made the roads challenging at best. At 12 miles per hour in 2nd gear the rearend slid sideways while making a left turn. The car came back across the double yellow and the front left corner kissed the front left corner of a Taurus driven by Moses himself. I had seen the body kit in a magazine and ordered it. 3 months later, all the parts had actually arrived for the kit. I had a body shop install it. The front bumper alone was 22 man hours. In total, even after what was paid out by my insurance, it $3995 dollars. It fit terribly and the company that manufactured the kit is out of business. The inventory was picked up by Mr. Bodykit. I sent them a 5 page letter asking them to remove the product to no avail.

It LOOKED like a good idea...

BTW, the body kit is getting yanked next month and I'm going back to full OEM. Ultimately, this has been about an $8000 mistake.

I'm kinda new to the forum and all my uploaded pics come up rather small and you click to enlarge. I should tell you that I acutally went through TWO of these front bumpers. The first one was destroyed by a puddle that was about 30 feet long, 4-6 inches deep, and traversed at about 30 miles per hour. The second bumper underwent a similiar fate driving through the snow and ice in Oklahoma 2 weeks ago.

Enjoy the pics...

The rear bumper and the license plate insert were all included in the kit. I might have tried to save the front bumper if it weren't for the rear bumper that is starting to warp.

And yes, the bodykit confuses all creatures, both living and dead with mixed feelings of, that is awesome, WTF were you thinking, and Jesus Christ, your foglights created scar tissue on my retinas. (They're kinda bright... )

And furthermore,

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO HAVE THIS KIT INSTALLED ON YOUR CAR!!

But, if you must repeat my $8000 mistake, message me and I will give you tips to make it a bit less of a catastrophe.
