Donít our cars come with rubber vents in the area you are circling?

Seems you should know that once you cut a vent into something that the pressure zones can easily change and need to be reanalyzed.
This was proven years ago on here, probably find the threads if you have a look about.

Believe it or not, the original purpose of carbon fiber was not to be used as automotive jewelry. I wouldn't assume everyone thinks that is of course its purpose.

I looked at it today but didn't look closely at the edges. I think I know what you're talking about but I'll have to reinspect. The cowl trim piece serves as a big inlet chamber for the HVAC, so any venting except for the very edges would get sucked into the cabin.

I searched a few variations of "windshield cowl" and couldn't find anything.

Cowl/base of windscreen, is a high pressure area.

I saw that model and I don't think it's detailed enough to check. I've already discarded the idea due to HVAC interference, but you realize the vent would be recessed under the back of the hood about 4 inches or so towards the front? And the CFD model doesn't consider the radiator airflow, which is the target of the venting. If airflow into the engine compartment is high enough, the firewall can create a high pressure zone too. I'm guessing that is what makes the hood dance at speed.
