For those with vented hoods?

I'm thinking about getting the RKSport hood but I'm woried about water getting into my engine bay, during rain and when I wash it. Should I be worried about it? Does anyone with a vented hood have these problems?

The air ducts have water draining ports that direct the water through the front part of the hood. I've not had an issue washing or in the rain.

I have the MPD version and when I picked it up from Gary weekend before last I drove most of the way back from PC FLA to Columbus GA (about 3 hours) in a series of Frog Stranglers with alot of wind and I haven't noticed anything unusual.

How did your hoods fit? Any tweaking needed to have them line up perfect?
