I've played around with the a Magnehelic gauge and the aerodynamic flow profile makes sense to me. I found lower pressure 6 inches back from the front edge of the hood, and higher pressure up by the cowl.

I'm going to next check along the side of the front fenders and further off the center line of the hood as suggested by aerohead.

Thanks again for all the input.
My hood is still strong because I didn't remove the main vertical hood support which is locatated between vents. I cut very small portion of front horizontal support. No flexing at all. Everything was well planned out. I'm glad that I could share.
