    My big mouth is on its way. Anyone remove the grill with the front license plate in place? Does it block the removal of the grill?

    I doubt that it can be removed without taking the license plate and bracket off

    I just talked with someone else here and he said he was able to do that but it took some finesse.

    The bracket can be pushed aside pretty easily.

    I got my snorkel yesterday. I will fill you all in how it goes with the license plate bracket in place. Hopefully I'll get around to doing it today if it is not raining (no garage). If not today, then definitely Friday as I have the day off.

    All... The grill does come off with the license plate bracket attached. Just take your time and hold it back while working the grill out. Took me about an hour because I was extra careful and slow with the process.

    It was actually harder to remove and reinstall the rubber piping that attaches to the air box hoses than removing the grill.

    Yeah but if you want to rivet, you'd have to remove the bumper?

    Interesting... my 2000+ miles MPG average of 27.2 went up to 27.3 with the snorkel over the 15 mile drive to work this morning. Power is about the same, but my MPGs on the highway seem to be much higher. Actually, way higher than I expected. Haven't pushed the car yet (like always), and I'm interested to see how much spool time is affected.

    I’ve had mine on my ST for over a year and don’t notice any difference in mileage or performance. To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting any gains, it just looks really cool. That’s enough for me.
