I'm no engineer, but does it even make sense for it to have both heat extractor vents and a large intake scoop? It seems like the air would just rush in and quickly exit via the extractor vents. What would this accomplish?
If a "large intake scoop" were to expedite this process you would probably see it if in fact this vent work is needed at all. The hood looks mean and nasty, and is something quite unique, although not suitable to everyones taste as you have previously mentioned. It's a shame GM is not going to engineer a functional fresh air duct/scoop for the supercharger. A cool, dense charge of air brings much to the horsepower table. Does anyone have any real info on how much engine heat, or engine compartment temperature rise the SC causes, if any? Does it really need an air exchanger vent in the hood?
