Driver side windtop vent

Anyone know why the driver side vent is not a vent? Seems opening that up would provide cooler air in the engine bay.

A bunch of us have been running open both-sides with no issues, and likewise agree it helps keep things cooler under the hood (and aesthetically looks much better as well in my opinion).

Yep, me included. I got around to installing my Jason vents over the holiday weekend and acceleration just feels smoother to me.

I've been running both sides open for two years with no problems. Jason's vents are sprinkled with special (NLA) Rover dust....get them while you can!!
