Default Free downforce for the Transcona Cougar

Looking at the inner fenders of the Transcona Cougar I came upon an idea. With the double walled construction of the inner fenders I felt that we could do something with that space. Many people will vent the front fenders to alleviate air pressure buildup. Kind of aerodynamically dirtys the front fender though? By louvering the inner structure and flowing that air to a venturi area of the exhaust it would reduce the under fender pressure and consequently increase front down force. This wasn't just a thought , I added a detailed sketch to go with it. LOL.

While this would work better with a side pipe system like I am planning it could also be incorporated into an under car system as well?

If you turned the pipe straight up you might even gain rear down-force.
