It's great seeing all the different vehicles, and different methods people have come up with!

Here's my contribution:

After; intake area of about 54 square inches / 350 square centimeters

I put a barrier in to keep the air from flowing down into the gap between the intake and the bottom of the condenser; it is notched into the steel frame surrounding the radiator and condenser, and is not touching the condenser itself.
Intake detail

For cold days (-18C and below) I have an extra section to add to block even more area. All removable by screwdriver.
