    Yeah I really dig the 'SS' mesh. Looks really clean. How's the airflow?

    I had not gone on a trip yet to test out, but I figured while the bumper was off take out the cover on the intercooler and install the turboxs bov. It definitely should have some kind of improvement.

    I have the grill from custom car grills as well but when I started to install it I got sketched out by how much plastic, especially structural / layered upper pieces, were going to need to be removed and instantly felt that the entire integrity of the bumper would be compromised... So I haven't installed mine yet either, even though I would love the look of the grill...

    Excellent work!!

    I thought about leaving the upper rib and emblem as a good compromise that would help with strength since around the back of the emblem is where the upper "gusseted" brace reattaches.

    Is that the plastic mesh you went with? Mine is metal, which poses its own set of challenges for working around the oddly shaped emblem...

    If you can do it yourself that one will save you a lot of money.I didn't have the time or expertise so I just purchased the Turbosocks's mesh grill. Fits perfectly.One warning on these mesh grills. You lose the bumper support in the middle of the stock grill. The problem with that is all the stress of the weight of the grill will be now placed on the spot where the grill is supported by the headlights. It's just two plastic molded onto the headlight pieces that will break from the weight. Mine broke on the passenger headlight already causing the bumper to sag at that spot by about 1/4 ". Only way to fix it is to buy a headlight assembly and that's cost prohibitive and would probably break again.It doesn't look so bad and most people won't notice but I do and it's driving me nuts. If anybody has an idea how to support it at that spot I'm all ears.
