    I have no idea how you were able to quote my post today with that second paragraph...
    I edited my post and removed that second paragraph re: benefits of bonnet venting fuel injected engines... yesterday....
    What's the story....?? Did you copy it from yesterday and post this morning...but not sure how you could have even done that, because I edited that part out almost immediately... after thinking about it.

    Have a look at my original post, it does not include that paragraph...

    I guess it depends on the colour you intend to paint the bonnet. With a darker colour you might not notice them as much. Anything to get rid of heat in the bay is a bonus, especially towards the back of the bay where I would image there isn't a lot of air movement.

    If going black bonnet I would keep them.
    If going orange bonnet and keeping vents black, then i would either paint the side vents orange too or ditch them.

    Old thread but where did you get this from? And is the centre vent piece real carbon? Thanks.

    Sticking my nose in because the OP hasn't been on since May last year

    I'd say it's a Blits Body Kits bonnet
