According to my contact at Seibon the stock mounting points of the hood will work, although these hoods are marketed by Seibon as "off road use only" so they always recommend hood pins as an extra safety precaution.
As far as the stock heat shield goes, he was not sure right off the bat if the stock exchanger would work because of the venting right there, but was kind of under the impression that an aftermarket intake would be needed. Sorry to be so vague, it was hard trying to get a solid answer out of him.
When they built these hoods the goal was to make an actual hood that actually worked to get heat out which they did not worrying if certain stock parts might work. So something aftermarket might be needed here for this application.
