You could turn them around to try and create a venturi effect I would guess. I can run a simulation with the software that I have to see if it would work if people are interested.
They aren’t perfect symmetrical. So that’s not gonna work.Now if LR had made the square....

I printed the upper wing vents in PLA and then lightly coated them in thin resin to prevent warping. They still warped. It's just a matter of time before the printed parts shrink due to heat.

I've also printed several guns in PLA and PETG and they have all warped from heat. I've taken to just making molds in PLA and then skinning them in carbon fiber. Works pretty well.
Try ABS if your printer supports it. It's a pain in the ass to get settings just right and you need to print in enclosure but definitely holds up better than PLA.
