Default 408: A lot of heat coming through the firewall.

I get a lot of heat from the firewall. The last owner added insulation inside the car but I am wondering what else I might do to cool the engine compartment. The car left the factory with no valance under the front end as shown in the first photo.

A previous owner fitted a metal tray to mine to hide the visible suspension and smooth airflow, I suppose. Might it help cool the engine bay if I take it off?

Also, did the car leave the factory with a rubber seal along the rear edge of the bonnet opening? Mine has a nice new aftermarket seal fitted and I wondered about removing it to let air leak out from the engine compartment there?

Thanks for any thoughts.
