Has anyone replaced the fake hood vents with an actual functioning vent? I know their are nice carbon fiber patent vents available. DO they help with engine temp? can they cause problems?? any ideas/experiences?

Wouldn't the vents be the exit method (since air would be coming in from the front grill)? I've considered adding vents to my car (sedan) because the V8 gets damned hot.

I just drilled wholes in the stock hood vents and it does help run my car a little cooler

My car has the aftermarket carbon vents from Import Shark:
.Hood Vents (v2), importshark.com

If you wanted to put those on, it would be very easy to (after removing the stock fake vents), mark the hood liner and cut out holes in there to allow the air to flow. I have considered doing it to mine, but would also want to paint the inside of the hood under the vents as it is white.

Here is an image of mine close-up so you can see what I am talking about. Looks like I will have to remove and re-install as the drivers side vent is not situated correctly and the thin portion is loose
