I think it's a great idea, as long as you are sure you will still have adequate air intake to the engine box to run the engine. The fan will remove heat more quickly, and also perhaps help to minimize the inevitable odors that manage to sneak out into the cabin space after a long run.

I'd run the fan all the time the engine runs, and perhaps with an off-delay timer so it runs a minute or two to exchange the engine box air a time or two after shutdown.
