    Fun fact: a human arm fits inside a hood scoop.

    You obviously speak fluent retard. As cynical as I am, I like to keep at least a little faith in the human race.

    I have the grill on ours, but I do a lot of highway driving and it has saved a few birds from going in, a newspaper, and some other variable trash.... It also kept the snow from filling the scoop during one of the big snow storms in PA this Spring. I would think if air flow was an issue and the air to the turbo was warmer it would show in the temp gauge for the engine. I was in Kansas this past year in Aug/Sept in 100+ degree temps and the temp gauge was still in the same place it was at home in NY during the summer before the grill and before I left.

    Temp gauge in the engine? Do you mean the IAT sensor that is located in the INTAKE on the OTHER SIDE of the engine? Or are you referring to the temp gauge on the dash, which is the ECT sensor and has literally nothing to do with any of this discussion.

    You are cutting off flow the intercooler, one of the primary components the cooling the charge entering your cylinders. If you don't understand any of this, I would remove that screen as soon as possible.

    Go ahead, but don't fool yourself into believing it doesn't negatively impact your car.
