Since I'm replacing the grill...

Went ahead and did the ZooDad mod.
Seriously FORD, WTF... Why put an air intake right behind a blocked area of the support
I Think I need to open it up just a bit more - but already see the EX getting better mileage,
normal driving to work and it's picked up about a 1/2 MPG so far.
But can definitely see I'll have to look into CAI updates next or getting a sleeve to go over my Airaid filter... darn thing was covered in bugs after 4 days.

Try a mesh screen riveted over the hole.

I thought about that as well.
I have some 'screen door' type mesh. I'm going to run with out it for now just to see a before and after.
Another strange but true option that someone suggested to me as to use some panty-hose over the airfilter...

Wow,
picked up 1.5mpg at highway speeds (doing 70/75mph) from South Denver to Longmont.
Actually had it up to 18.8 at one point before getting off the interstate!
And this is with no tuning done yet!

I was going to get one that's pre-modded to fit (that looks like Nick's) But Ironically - went with the one that's on Gene's.
