anyone running with rear sheetmetal removed?

someone on this board with a 3.2 conversion is running with the rear sheetmetal removed,just the back strip. l can see why you`d want to do this especially with a turbo conversion car because its a pain to fit everything back there. l think Juan helped this guy with his car,,anyhow he claims cooler running temps.Anyone have any experience with this? l have my sheemetal trimmed around the turbo and l have a vented panel where the reflector was,l also vented the bumper where the licence plate mounts. l have seen several VW`s come into my shop with blown engines from running with no sheet metal around the motor.No bueno..
