I'd start by picking up a scan gauge if you have the cash. That way you can quickly see if an iimprovement helps or hurts.

TheThe first quick and easy mod would probably be blocking that upper grill opening. That would push more air up and over the car. You'll want to watch your temps, but it sure looks like that lower opening takes care of most of the cooling anyway.

Adjusted for my driving habits. 80%city/20%Highway.
