When I purchased the car the previous owner had installed custom screens over the air intake scoops on the front of the car. He said they didn't affect operation or temp. After driving the car regurally and putting on 1200 + miles it seems to be ok. Temperature gauge comes up to the 180 mark with the needle settling out on the Zero fo the 180 and it holds there. I would guess the water temp is around 195 - 200 at that point given the next mark is 250. I removed them to see if it would make a difference and it does not. I want to re-install them because i know they will keep out the road trash from building up on the radiator which can be a real problem. Your thoughts on this will be appreciated.
