Now that I've discovered where the ambient air temperature sensor is located on my vehicle I'm building a snorkel out of flashing to fix the problem of the gauge reading almost 10 degrees too high after installing the grill blocks.

There is a verticle cross member on the header that the sensor is fixed to. This should direct enough fresh air to overcome the heatsoak.

Mirror deletes, 80% grill blocks, wheel covers, 50 psi tires = 6% better MPG avg. over a year. Wheel skirts overcoming ethanol winter fuel mpg losses and more!
