Grill block if required? other than engine managed air shutter, there is only an opening the size of licence plate left in center grill opening. upper grill is completely closed off by the trim.

over-inflate tires? done...

Air intake modification to allow warm air intake. the intake is located behind the closed off area of the middle grill opening. It seems to improve intake temperatures by at least 5 degrees Celsius.

might switch to high test for a few tanks to verify if there is value added for hill climbing and MPG. done....

considering lower grill block to reduce the cooling capability of the intercooler... done
