cab vs tent question

I made my own grow cab but the ambient temperature is at 30 celcius and temps inside the cab could range around 30-35 celcius. (growing in led)

i have given up on trying to manage my cab because the weather here is just too hot (i live in a tropical place) and using an ac is just out of the question for me (budget issues)

my friend told me that my temps would be so much better if i bought a grow tent because the insides are lined with mylar, etc.

i was wondering if this was true. any thoughts? im considering buying a tent just to avoid high temps lol.

How big is your grow cab, your fans and your light?

it's about 1.8x2x6

i have an 6 inch exhaust, 3x passive intake at the bottom and a 4 inch oscillating fan.

i was thinking of getting a growtent from your site and stuck between sj dr90 2.5 and the one from growlab 2.7x2.7xsumthin

my light is a 200w(155w) led light from china.

also, i was wondering if ducting is necessary for grow tents? will it be possible to just install a 6-inch exhaust fan at the port and it won't be screwed up while i use passive for my intake
