The radiator does look aftermarket though (silver etc) and it does seem to be lower as you said.

As far as I recall I don't have a fan in front of my radiator, so I can just install this duct system (DIY of course) right up to the kidneys.

Here's what I'm thinking:

DIY the stuff circled in red. Either made of metal, plastic or custom made CF
The turquoise would be where the MAF is positioned.

Now for us 323/328 owners: We can get gains by installing an M54B30 intake manifold, and they are not minimal either, as far as I've heard. Good part: THAT'S STILL POSSIBLE by going with the frontal RAM intake DIY.
I know its a old post but I can see this overheating since it covers almost all the radiator.
