The vent cutouts under your cowl are insufficient. I did the same thing with mine (250 Moki) and she overheated on the runway just before takeoff; thankfully. My cowling was baffled just as yours is. The fix is to remove virtually all of the space between the two cutsouts you have already made. In other words, the bottom of the cowl should have a large square section missing. Perhaps if you cut out an additional rectangular section between the existing cutouts, that would suffice. Trust me on this; what you have is not enough.
