The idea that opening vents will push hot air places that is isn't supposed to be kinda made me laugh a little.
So... in that line of thought...
What stops the ECU killing hot as he11 air from reacing those components when you are stuck in stop and go traffic in the 110-120 degree weather?
They had to have tested for these conditions and they had to have designed the parts acordingly on a car that is primarily a warm weather car.
(this has been covered numerous times already).
Funnny how all the nay sayers have dropped off now that the road test data is up.
Ok... ok... I know... enough
I did have another idea to help the venting process...
Take an idea from extreme computer builders/modifiers...
Those hood vents are long enough for four of these:
Ok, so maybe it wouldn't be worth all that much effort for 99% of the people out there.
It might be worth it to someone having overheating issues in 110-120 degree heat, stuck in traffic, etc...
Or maaaaaybe help with those CAI's that end up sucking in hot air until the car can get moving. At least with the fans sucking out the hottest (they're up top and heat rises sooo...) air in the engine bay you might be able to keep the area around the CAI intake at or near ambient?
Again, not all that much of a gain from that so it would be more of a geek/tinkerer factor.
Maybe those that like to drag could gain a tenth off that?
