i could be completely wrong as that is one of those things that has to be tested on an individual basis to really know.
Oh I know its subjective, Airflow patters and thermals is something that I've done for a bit with my Job and as such gives me good Guessing abilities lol.
I could be completely wrong too 3oh6 , as you say its case by case basis.
Best way to know is to swing that TRUE facing the other way for a test and see what happens.
