It is three times as expensive as the plate I used for my grill block but a good product, no doubt.

I want to make a small frame or set of mounting points from an aluminum strip I bought a while ago, or maybe a couple of studs to the grill with washers behind the slits.

I may need to remove one foam pipe from the lower grill as I saw the intake temp go up as high as 39C (in 5C weather), which can reduce EGR usage.
