Default How do you use your hood scoops and vents?

I have a GM8 2.5 RS (2000)

It's nice having a low stress, n/a motor.

However, it kills me that our RS's have hood scoops AND hood vents, twice the holes in the hood, half to none of the use.

Bothers the crap out of me. (form follows function.)

I mean, I could wait until the inevitable turbo swap...
OR I can make do with a nice, easy custom ventilation, CAI, or ram-air modification in the meantime.

So:
  • How do you guys (GM8 owners) use your hood scoops?
  • How about your vents?
  • Pictures?

Oh! With some research, you're right!

Silly me. New to the car!
