MG MGF Technical - Engine Bay Grill Cover
|I was thinking of removing my engine bay grill cover (permanently) to allow some more air into the engine bay. Will this have any significant effect on cooling the engine or am I wasting my time.|
|Er, you'll be wasting your time.|
|Only if you also remove the boot lid!|
|I am no techno head (had to get a garage to fit my K&N) but does that mean a K&N induction kit will reduce the chances of HGF by the fact that extra cold air is being directed to the air filter/engine bay?|

In theory... but don't quote me on that :-)
|Well if it does it did not help me ... I've had the K&N for two years and suffered my HGF 1 year ago.|
|K&N induction kit does improve airflow but it also makes you rev the engine more (to heard that beautiful note) so in the end they cancel each other out.|

OK - removed the engine grill cover and the boot lid. Airflow into engine bay is now optimised.
I've driven with the parcel shelf and engine cover plate removed, forget the k&n and noisy exhaust if you can stand the heat you'll love the noise...
it will give you a feel of really how hot the engine runs......
