Hood Louvers Anyone?

So I was stumbling through the quadratec website one day, until I ran into this.

http://www.quadratec.com/products/13106_6000.htm

I have to admit it comes in black and it looks pretty bad ***. The fact that you have to cut huge rectangles into your hood has to mean that it works at emitting heat right?

Opinions? Anyone had any experience with these?
