undefinedWhat's the deal with the rubber hood scoop plugs? They do vent but not much. Is it better to drive with them out when driving hard on a clear day? They pop in and out easily. Are they just to prevent rain and bugs from getting onto the engine? Do they have any other purpose? My dealer could'nt clarify.

I opened mine. Not sure why rain getting in there would be such a big deal either. The car has the fuel rail/ coil pack covers. Also think how much water makes it into the engine bay during driving in a rain storm. Oh well that's my .02

I also took mine out, modified them with a knife and put them back in so the air flow is blasting directly into the engine. I also added a coarse plastic filter material to the bottom to stop the bugs / leaves etc getting in. Engine is so much cooler with these forcing air over the engine.

Sounds interesting but what did you use as a coarse plastic filter material ?
