Cooler? No. It protects your hood paint in extreme heat from blistering, and keeps the engine noise from bothering you.

Install hood vents like driverjohn2005 and I have (just do a search on hood vents) or duct some fresh air in from underneath like I did.

My hood vents push ALOT of hot air out naturally. I can see heatwaves in the summer. You can also do a hi-speed fan override like many of us have done.
