Depends how cold the air is in that area, if it's too hot , you aint Makin no gain at all.( Just wasting time and money)

Get a inside - outside thermometer and tape it on the hood and drive around and put the outside sensor around under the hood in various places to find a cold air source and work from there.

My 2 cents, Doug in P.R.

Yikes, I wanted information from you guys and I definitely got it. Lol

I'm going to have to see if I can find some sort of a sensor like you were talking about, Sunbird. Then that'll help me with mel's question, as far as knowing where the cold air will be coming from. I noticed that the higher model Grand Am grilles appear a little bit different than they do on my SE, almost as if they have a grille delete, or something to that nature done to the left and right of the Pontiac logo. Could be just because people around here mod their vehicles a lot though. So I'm uncertain as far as that goes.

Walmart or Radio Shack will have the indoor-outdoor thermometer....
