Mine still works....

It just got rid of the annoying "power cut" between shifts.

I didn't put the brown and white wires together.

I ONLY CUT THE BROWN WIRE AND PUT ELECTRICAL TAPE ON BOTH ENDS. NOTHING ELSE!

How do you determine what direction the plugs are facing?

There are more pics of my SRI posted somewhere on this forum, minus the box. I've added one below but it doesn't show the box that the filter sits in. The hood is vented and as you can see it is functional. I'll take some more pictures after all this SNOW goes away...
Do you have the airbox sealed up against the hood for that driverside vent? If so, you'll want to turn the vent around. At speed, the vacuum on the hood will want to pull air out of the vents, and the intake will be fighting it to pull air in.

It's not a perfect seal like a ram-air should be, so there shouldn't be a vacuum situation. There are small pressure relief holes at the bottom rear part of the box so there is no chance of the incoming air competing with outgoing air. Also, the vents actually do get some cowl induction benefit being so far up on the hood (I've tested this already... air is definatelty only going in, not out). Besides that, the filter actually sits only 2mm from the vent so it pulls in plenty of air. Needless to say it is *VERY* effective. Soon though I will be going to a completely sealed box with a ram-air scoop. The vents will just let hot air out on both sides then. Also, the direction of the vents wouldn't make much difference anyways as only the front one has any frontal area to actually pick up air.

How did you test the cowl induction? It seems unlikely as they are still a good distance from the windshield.

The vacuum is always there at speed... air is flowing over the hood and vents, pulling air out of the vents. With the vents facing the opposite direction, you'll have less resistance into the intake. As you said, it's not sealed though, so you're likely just getting a portion of air from the vents and the rest from whatever openings are around the airbox.
