Ram air effect

Tried that.... Does not work nearly as well as anyone thinks. Scratch that: It does not work AT ALL! It will in fact have a negative effect on cooling.
At 50 mph, the pressure at the intake of that ram air duct is a maximum of a whopping 3 mBar, and that value is only achieved with a fully closed exit.
That kind of weak pressures is NOT going to compress air into that converging exit. It simply is not. All it will achieve is a reduction of air velocity in the wide "ram air intake".
So there will be less air flowing between those rockerboxes, and at a lower velocity, resulting in less heat dissipation.
I can assure anyone from experience, that a diverging duct will have a better effect, and in fact will result in an improvement of airflow. A slight bit of divergence will go a long way, too much and the effect will be cancelled.
