Personally I like the 3rd option you show there. The lip infront of the bid middle vent will make a significant difference. The lip creates a low pressure zone directly behind it.

It's not super obvious in the videos I posted, but when I tried an open vent without a lip, the wool strips at the front of the vent hung limp. By adding a lip, those wool strips were showing a lot higher air flow.

You could always enlarge the hole to get more airflow if it's still not sufficient.

I've actually been thinking about relocating the radiator overflow tank - it should free up some space right behind the radiator, where you can then run a blocking plate and force more air out of the top of the hood (at that center vent you mention). I also like the third option, but it feels like the vents should sit further forward than they do.

I agree with you guys about the 3rd hood (painted carbon Autokits hood). If I find I need it to control heat and end up getting a hood, I might leave it carbon at 1st to see if I can make it look ok with some other carbon accents on the car and then I might try painting the entire hood including the vents or maybe everything but the center of the vents.

We are getting hit with a huge snow storm for the next three days!?! Hopefully, this all melts by my track day in two weeks. The view from work right now:
