    Do you mean in the cowl or the grab handle ? The cowl one is just to handle heat better.

    here's why im asking....the air enters the engine compartment via the hole in front of the seat under the glove box. and exits from the rear under the grab bar. so with the rear air now taking up the only exit for the hull heat. will this cause excessive heat soak to the engine?
    also is the small hole in the grab handle large enough to not starve the SC?

    I would put them in..Like you stated,Air enters the front but has no were to escape the engine bay....I actually have 4 in my seat cowl along with a bilge blower in the front to help force the warm air out of the engine bay...As far as the grab handle holes??I have 2,2 inch diameter holes in mine with zero issues..

    They are just a good way to help with heat fade.
    The cooler that engine bay is the better your are!
