Shaker system is but only slighty boosts performance, if any. The real benefit is being able to intake air from completely outside the car.
@OP - Sorry to tell ya but you probably won't see much of a performance boost. These hoods will work better with a CAI than with the stock airbox as well. The benefit you get it being able to get air that hasn't been heated by the engine bay pretty much at all.
OP - Can I ask how much prep work time (and dollars, since it seems you had it painted professionally) were involved in having the hood painted? I understand they do not come from Trufiber in ready-to-paint condition and may require a bit more than scuff sanding and primer.
Also...where's the pics of the new hood? What did you end up doing about the airbox?
painter said it was one of the nicest fiberglass hoods he has ever seen very little prep its still at the shop. They are charging me 750 to paint both the hood and my new Roush front bumper as far as the airbox goes I plan on getting a CAI with a good heat sheild to block out as much heat from the engine bay as possible and allow the cold air from the ram air hood to blow on top of it.
