Question Bonnet vents

I was asked the other day bout the 2 vents on the bonnet what do they do? apart form look gud!!! I could not answer as there is a seal and plate that bolts on the botton so no air can get in, just a little hole for water to escape?? in the summer i do remove the bottom plate to get more air to the air filter..

Any ideas???

they are probably designed for a heat escaspe...... obviously the scoop is there to suck in more air but vents there to escape engine bay heat...
but not that sure ?>

also read somewhere that people have claimed better running by removing the blanking plate but think its personal opinions -nothing proven sort of thing...

Thought it was some form of escape or inlet for air, just bafflin with the foam seal and metal plate bein there and non directional!!!.

I must admit it does run better with the plate removed in the summer, many ppl are puttin them little scoops on now which i think look silly but everyones taste is different..
+ it looks smart when removed as u can see the induction kit and hear it suckin like a MF..

Thanks for replys gareth..
