I had a full grill block installed initially and found that every couple of minutes of freeway driving would result in the temps rising to 100 until my fan kicked on and brought it back down to 94. I completely opened up the lower half of my upper grill and now temps never get past 95.

Did you observe a mpg increase, and if if so, how much?
