Wink vents for the engine compartment

i been thinking of making vents to the engine comparment, either by having an RX7 scoop on the hood and some holes in the hood to let the engine cool down faster, kinda like the supra on the fast and the furious, or having the rx7 scoop on the hood and having holes in the fenders ( like the ones on the beemers) so it vents the heat out. which do you think will look the best? which would be more practical in your opinion? thanks for any response in advance.

I think that a scoop like the RX-7 scoop, with the vents to the left and right of it on top of the hood near the windshield would be the best way for hot air to get sucked out... With how hot it can get under our hoods I think vents are a good idea, and they look pretty cool too. The Z3 style vents in the fenders would look cool too, but I don't think they would draw the heat out as well.

well honestly it already has the cowl hint I think you should just go with the cowl induction set up. If you could work it out to where the side slits cooled down the brakes that would be great!

I was going to mention the cowl induction hood. Those work pretty good too! :s6:
