Exakirry Mac... the extra air "fills" the engine bay and prevents air from going through the radiator sufficiently.
Exellent previous post.
I’ve learned something.

On my v8 I kept the scoop on.
Temperature management is good for a conversion, but would be better if the scoop was closed.

This is the same reason the side wheel-wel rubber flap/covers are so important as well as the radiator cowl...

They all add up to ensure correct air flow through the radiator.

So if there is no scoop, and cowl is right, and wheel-well rubber flap/covers are in place, where does the air go?
Just channeled behind the engine and through to the back?
