This appears to be an even worse area for air flow than under the trunk. However, there should be some air going around it, and the fin area will help radiate some heat. You also get the benefit of a higher oil capacity which means it will take longer for the oil to get too hot.

I don't think it's a particularly good solution, but neither is the one that I used--and it meets similar constraints for not changing the body very much. It would probably benefit from some shrouding and a fan, and possibly ducting air from a cooler location.
