Remember,the forward stagnation pressure is communicated through the cooling system,and as soon as the air passes the heat exchangers it's going to "look" for a way out.That speeding low pressure air along the side of the car is the first candidate if the under hood air can get to it.------- You can design for that like Kamm and Morelli,or you can move the entire cooling system to the rear like Ford did with the Probe series concepts.
