or youd block the whole thing and run a lower lip or something... I dont see that doing anything but causing the air to collide with it rather than the blocked piece of sheet metal just behind it

i want the air flow to the radiator, and if you keep the blockage infront of the sheetmetal, you get better milage. fractional, but enough fractions and you get a whole mpg. its FREEEEEEEEE, is the point, and makes a small difference, oh and its ghetto fabulos.

thats the point, its off center, because it is the air dam. thats where you block, bigger yes, but this is the free one.

I think you mean "Free radiator block"... I like it!

I was just looking at my Metro the other day and thinking of doing the exact same thing... being California where it's illegal to NOT run a front

Yeah, I'm moving back to MD from MI. It's going to suck to have to deal with smog again, and MD also requires front plates. The cops are always dicks about it because it's an easy ticket.

I love driving around in MD with a MI tag, because I know the cops want to pull me over.

My 98 has had a front plate on it for about 200 of it's 145K miles. No hassles in MD, did get a ticket while parked in DC though. $50 for no front plate, not even their jurisdiction, pissed me off big time.
