Do the 03-04 exterior side vents fit on the 01?

Yes they fit, and they look fantastic! My 99 with contrasting 03-04 Vents sourced from Woody.

Yes & they increase airflow.

Id like to see some data to back that up. Seems highly unlikely.

I can't confirm the vent itself helps with airflow but the snorkel opening is larger on the 03/04. That's maybe why people think the vent flows better
