    I've seen a couple places selling the intake port grille/screen. Wanted to get one but didn't know if it was frowned upon for restricting airflow. Didn't want a bird or something getting in there when I hit 160 and prepare for lift off.:( But seriously has anyone tried this and noticed a rise in air temp difference for supercharger..thanks in advance

    It'd have to pass through the air filter so just leave it alone IMHO

    A radar guided bird? You have a better chance of being struck by lightning. I agree leave it alone.

    When I had my Shelby some genius at Ford decided to put no grill at all on it. Now that was a problem. Heat exchangers busted left and right.

    was just joking about a bird..kind of an aviation joke, bird strike on take off..Cessna can get airborne at 60-70mph..160 you can get a boeing airborne

    I don't see how they could hurt or help.
    Wonder if they would look good painted. Might be more of a visual custom mod.

    I was just out driving the other day on the highway and went through some construction. was thinking the grille would be nice to keep out debris if any came off the road or a dump truck getting on the highway. didn't want a rock getting in there. I didn't think of it before but maybe on the other end where you cant see inside they put a mesh screen or something to filter out bugs and large debris from getting in there and messing something up. As you can tell I worry about everything when it comes to my baby.

    It may goes into the airbox. Still has an air filter to get through
