Daystar Hood Vents

Installed the Daystar Hood Vents. There's three 1-1/4" holes with rubber grommets under each vent. I could see some hot air venting out of the engine compartment. They give it a other than stock look.

I was just looking at these in the 4wd catalog. Have you noticed a heat reduction with them? I have the banks ram air CAI installed and I wonder if the change in air flow from those vents would affect the air intake...?

They really look good. Did you have to buy your own hole saw or does the kit come with it? If you had to buy the hole saw, do you think three two inch holes would work to flow more air or do you think the 1 1/4" holes are sufficient? Would you have a pic with the holes drilled without the cover?

Sorry for all the questions but I really like them and seeing your pix, I like them even more.

Thanks for any info. Bob

The thing about the 3 1-1/4" holes is they give you rubber grommets to go in each hole. This keeps the water from running into the engine compartment. I see the holes letting air out, flowing through the grill and releasing or forcing hot air out the holes. The hole saw I bought at the local hardware store. 10 bucks, if you have the chuck/bit.

Cool. thanks. I like the grommet idea to stop water. That's one of the reasons why I wouldnt use one of those larger Poison Spyder type louvers. I live in the Northeast. We get alot of snow/ice. I know the electrical connectors are water resistant against what splashes up during regular driving but I don't trust them to take a beating year after year.

I can easily find 2" rubber grommets to do the same job. Never hurts to flow a little more air though right? Thanks for posting write up and pix. These are going on my Christmas list. Haha.
