Vent heat from engine compartment

I have a 2008 700 EFI and the heat escaping from the back of the engine compartment makes it uncomfortable to drive. I have a windshield that hinges open on the bottom and that helps but even the roll bar frame at the back of the cab gets too hot to put your bare arm on. Has anyone come up with a way to vent the heat from the engine compartment? The engine is not over heating. Thanks

thsi only happens to peeps with windshields, it developes a back draft and pulls the heat towards the front.

if you have room, lift the windshield up about 1-1.5" this will help.
IF not, you should put small vent in the lower portion, ones you can close for cold weather would be nice.
