i cant say a ton on the motor part, but a fan on a brushed motors endbell works the all out best imo, right in front of the end bell

The air goes into the ends of the motor and then out through the motor can

Air flows through the endbell either naturally or with a fan and exits through the vents in the side of the can and probbaly out the bottom of the can.

If you grab a spare motor and run it off 2 cells or a couple of volts and place your hand near the vents you can feel the blast.
