hood vent question

Are the hood vents on a 1st Gen prelude actually functional or is it an ascetic? I was trying to find a picture of the underside of the hood couldn't find one on Bing. Does anyone have a picture?

Re: hood vent question

I found on mine they were useful when the water pump died and leaked coolant all over the exhaust, steam came pouring out of them. Apart from that I think they're just an aesthetic. They do let air flow right through them but IIRC there is nothing that connects into them. Could be to let a little extra heat out since the air filter mounts straight to the top of the carby.
