I never understood how important a shroud was until I moved from Ohio to South Carolina. My Jeep CJ5 never had an issue with heat in Ohio. Then I moved to SC and swapped in a V8. The Jeep still ran cool "enough", but eventually I added a shroud with a 16" electric fan mounted inside it. Now there is no doubt that it'll stay cool. Even on 100 degree days, I can run down the road without a worry.
I don't know how complicated Leve's design is, but whether you make it, or buy it, I'd recommend a shroud. It's easily worth the money and effort.
