Wow! Now that's something Slow, compared to the 'instant' open of my grille block (I should post a vid), but the 30-40 seconds it takes is enough.

Nice work, augustinionut, and welcome to EcoModder

...one nice aspect of the motor-driven shutter is that it can be stopped & started at any time to achieve "air flow-control" so the radiator doesn't over heat.

I used only to speed warmup of the motor, for fuel economy and for driving fast, faster in winter mornings
I need your help: there is a large bimetal blade capable to pull my grillblock? Sticked to exhaust cover plate?
EDIT This will work?

Did someone tried to use exhaust heat to warm the car (the engine)?

Maybe someone could use this controller for a grill-block-gizmo:
Autospeed article: $25 Temperature Controller and Display!

I agree that best place for temperature measurement is radiator return line. Example if normally radiator drops temperature from 90 C to 70 C then you set threshold to around:
if temp higher than 75 then open grill, shut grill if lower than 70

Nice!
I wonder how it will work at speed, when air pressure will be pushing it?
