What dissipation are you talking about. The base of the windshield is a high pressure zone and always has been. If you open up the back of the hood you will acually suck air into the engine bay.

Well, Im probably using the wrong terms or thinking differently in engineering then the way things actually are.

Im looking about it as the air passes over the opening, it creates a vacuum of cold air over the windshield, allowing the hot air from inside the engine compartment to escape. Not saying there isnt any air going into those area's what-so-ever, but the way Im thinking a cowl works, its contradictary.

Same here. Both have styling cues and things that make them mean.

I love the smooth lines of the WS6, but also the sharp and boxed lines of the Cobra.

I say WS6, the Cobras look good, but where i am, the GT's are changing there bumpers and hoods to look like a Cobra. It is like I see real ones and fake ones everyday all day.
I live in a military town, the base, Fort Bragg

Thats what I was thinking at first, but if you look at the cowl of many race cars that deal with high speed youll see that the cowl area is flush with the windshield and all the hood vents are over the tires, and right behind the radiator. The hood on that cobra does look good none the less, just not as functional as most think.

I think it depends a lot on color...a black WS6 just says "bite me."

I have a cowl hood and have sucked leaves against the vents on it. It DEFINITELY sucks air in. When It is raining, the rain that drops off the edge of cowl goes into the vents at anything over 40-50mph. Definitely gonna help when I get my carb. I know a guy that fabs sheetmetal that is gonna try to make a carb housing that will seal up next to the vents NASCAR style for me.
