The Honda CRX Del Sol had a very small grille opening under the bumper. What if it had no grille opening and just pulled in air as needed with the rad fan?
Well it needs some opening to pull air in. The smaller the opening, the less efficient the fan is, and you can increase fan power without pulling in much more air.
