    Has anyone cut out the hood vents in their hood? Does it help engine cooling? Is there a negative? Water on the computer or electrical distribution box?

    If your having issues with high temps with your CTD, I'd be more concerned your terrorizing the transmission and/or turbo unless there is a problem with the engine cooling system.
    As far cutting the hood vents out, anything under the hood should tolerate getting wet from water dripping on it.

    No issues, just curious.

    You would need some sort of bead roller or metal fabrication to double over the cut edges of the vent. Those bare edges of the vent will be real sharp.

    If you're having a cooling problem, cutting vents in your hood will not do anything.
