All above I agree with except try to balance some of the temps by adding back the front dams. They are there to move more cool air to the rear cylinders. After you add them back and the front cylinders get too hot you can cut a little at a time until you balance the temps. One item that really helped mine was to pull off the original stock black baffle material that Vans supplied and I replaced it with the new silicone stuff from aircraft spruce. This sealed much better against the cowl for me and probably lowered my temps by 15 to 20 degrees. Hottest I see is 405 in 100 degree climb outs.
