Though they are sometimes installed for design reasons, they can also provide additional airflow to the engine. 

Here is how these front-mounted vents can help improve your car's performance. 

Cooling air

The hood vents can let in cooler, denser air as the vehicle moves at higher speeds. This flow can help lower engine temperature naturally without additional fans. 

Supercharging the engine

Depending on the design of the hood scoop, it can increase the pressure and speed of airflow, providing the engine with extra oxygen. This causes a supercharging effect that makes combustion very efficient and produces more power. 

Functioning as an intercooler

In engines with turbochargers, the intercooler can be mounted on top in the form of a scoop. It lets dense, highly pressurized air into the compressor and improves engine power.
