I have the same cooling setup as you have, make sure that the air cannot pass the radiator in any way, tighten it up with a rubber seal the whole way around and it will work.
I haven't done it yet, prĂȘt but I'm going to have a small scoop behind the wheel. Together with the window scoop and maybe with an optional air intake underneath there will be a lot of air pressed through radiator. If you go the same route also make sure that the air will be forced through the rad and not out via one of the other intakes!

Looks like a great project!

That's a good idea Wink
