It's the air pressure gradient from above each cylinder to below that cools the fins - I've hypothesized that the left side of the doghouse creates less of a gradient to cool 2 and 4 for reasons I just can't grasp.  There may be a point of air flow stagnation on the left but a favorable gradient on the right.  It may take an engineer brain like yours to solve - I'm clearly not up to the task.

bottom left of front cowl -  hmmm interesting point - I wonder if a winterization plate in the winter would reduce the difference between sides of the engine….

An inherent baffle seal problem with 180 hp Mooneys - especially if they are equipped with a light weight starter and alternator upgrade - is shown  in this photo.  The seal around the oil feed line for the prop governor especially challenging. 

Yes, the photo loaded inverted.
