That is a most egg-salad plan.

everyone on the taurus forum says that they breathe from underneath, so I'm guessing the air that goes under the air blocker should be enough... I know I'm going to need to keep an eye on the temp gauge though. If it gets high, I'm just going to remove it.

I think if the temps go up, you just have to start cutting holes in the cardboard. If your Taurus breathes under, then maybe that means trimming off the bottom (which helps those pesky clearance issues).

[ egg-salad => excellent, ]

Thank you!!!

This is totally useless - except for pointing out some sort of mental defect...

when the guys at tcca said it breathes from below, it means it gets cooled off more from the bottom grille hole. so you're gonna need a hole. also dude did you think about the transmission cooler? the extra heat will surely kill the AX4S even quicker.
