Hood vent on 2014's

Just wondering if anyone has seen any pic(s) of the underside of the hood vent on the 2014 SS or Z28 yet? Any hood-open pics out there? Curious to see if it has a "splash" pan and/or how it diverts water away from the engine. I saw one pic that seemed to show a thick kind of chrome wire mesh that is under or between the vent slot openings.

Seen a pic, it diverts water to the front, towards the hood latch.

Thanks for the pic....looks like a Junk trap....Sorry I do not care for holes in the hood...will just catch leaves, pollen, dirt etc and be hard to clean...I can see having to remove the under cover for cleaning.......not sure how that helps down force....'13 or bust

I think it probley works as a heat extractor also to reduce temps in the engine compartment.

Yes I know that but has also been said to help down force. I guess by reducing upward pressure on bottom of hood...not a fan for reasons stated above. Will not be easy to rermove for cleaning of junk that finds its way in...may well be an attraction for folks pouring fluids down such...club goers be ware

wonder if pre '14 hoods will fit or did that change the the front clip too much...

There's a lot of heat that comes off the exhaust manifolds. Using heat extractors, this will help cool external engine temps.

Would the Vararam work with this hood? Or will it just funnel water onto the filter?

Anybody know what the price for the 2014 hood with scoop cost? I've gone to the dealership and they told me 4k? Seriously? Pretty sad if true?

Can't please everyone. Nothing doesn't gets trapped in the vent, yes it does work. You can see the refraction from it.

There's a member here on Camaro5 who retro-fitted the factory 2014 hood vent onto his pre-2014 SS! He made it look easy.

Here ya go:

Truth that it works. Every time I stop at a stop light I can see the heat shimmer from the extractor pulling hot engine compartment air out through it. And that is while the car is stationary. I imagine its much more when moving but you cant really see it then.

If the hood vent did nothing and was a show piece, it wouldn't be on the Z28...

Yeah...the original 1969 cowl induction hood/air cleaner assembly are now very valuable junk traps.

My '69 disc brake 12 bolt rear was functional, but it was too valuable to ever actually install it. Same goes for the factory headers and cross ram dual intake that came in the trunk of a Z28 (to be installed by the dealer). I paid for the options when a buddy ordered a new Z28 when he came back from the 'Nam. I took them home and stored them away. They were sold for enough to make a hell of a down payment on a new home when my enlistment was up.

No different than a ZL1 hood insert any mine does not catch any junk in it.
