Neither has fins. I was just wondering if Honda may have intentionally left gaps on the side for a reason, but I don't think the gaps were intentional and I don't think they do anything positive. I didn't notice any increase in trans temp, oil temp, or intake air temp since I sealed them off, but like I said I have nice coolers for my engine and transmission oil and I put my air filter in its own heat shield box to keep heat off of it so I wouldn't expect to see any differences in any of these areas. Not sure how any of these areas would have been affected in stock form.
