Default Ram Air vs Ram air/heat extraction combo (both functional)

hello everyone, new to the forum and I am curious which would be more beneficial. All hoods and types will be functional. I guess the root question is what is better, a Ram air with a bigger vent to push more air, or a hood with two smaller vents, but has heat extraction as well. The picture of the white hood is actually the heat extractor combo. Thanks in advance.

Welcome the the Forumz!

A lot of guys have been looking for function sport hoods, where did you find these?

As to your question is cost a factor? If so, how much are the different hoods?

Considering that heat extraction is already happening, I think pushing more air into the engine makes a lot of sense, especially when you need more air due engine mods, forced induction, etc...

I agree with MADDOG. The only thing I would urge you to make sure of is that they have some way to prevent water from getting into the intake in rainy weather.

There isnt much of a price difference in them. One is at ramairhoods.com and the other is at suncoastcreations.com. How is the heat extraction already happening? I know the boxes under the hood are the same, but does it look like the SRT style with push more air? I thought all of the functional hoods like this had the water issue built into them. Doesnt make sense to not unless they planned on everyone with them only using them on the strip.
