I don't know anyone who drives with their hood removed to allow full flow of ambient air.
Of course the hoods were open and air was pushed in...

That's how it works when you are actually driving.

Seeing as how there isn't a dyno that reads power when you are actually driving, they all have to do this with static dynos.
