I tried to make flanges like you have and it did not work well - the cause was the engine twist. The engine is twisted to the right side, although the crank flange is in the center.

The baffle width is 31.5" wide and parallel. The sides are perpendicular to the back baffle too. But the engine is twisted.

If your current path does not flow well, You might consider taking the insulation and fastening it to the baffles, then placing the cover over the top, when it fits in place, you can check the clearance to the cowl, then glue to the insulation.

If your path works, then. . . . (like Roseanne Rosanna-danna ) never mind.
