I would think so. Will holes on the flat surface take in enough air? The vent looks to be a scoop as well

Ordered June 6th with estimated June 29th deliver. So, I'm surprised yours hasn't arrive yet .

The 6MT isn't supposed to get as hot as the DSG, so I think if there's a little less air coming in, it shouldn't be an issue. I'm just unsure if no air coming in is okay, especially if I plan on taking the car to the track a few times a year.
