Hack brings up a good point about the long engine block.
Interestingly, I gentleman around the corner from my office has a Ferrari garage, building and preparing race cars and fixing street cars.
He's a friend and tracks himself. He looked at my car after telling him about the overheating and the first thing he said was I should cut vents in my hood and in back of the wheel well
He must think I'm made of money that I could do that to my car.
He went on and on about getting the air moving more efficiently to get cool air in there to replace all of the hot air. Is this something that's being missed; ventilation?
