You should get one of those clamps to locate it in front of the bumper; thus unblocking the airflow to your IC.

On the road, it shouldnt change a thing. But it will certainly be more eye-catching in the parking lots.

with my aftermarket oil cooler, modified intake, and intercooler, I've taken a lot of the factory plastic pieces out from behind the grills which direct air, so I figure any little thing that I can do to help air flow might be good

but year, the intercooler is big enough that it really shouldn't be too bothered by being slightly blocked by the plate.

Nice IR shot. Rare to see someone use it. Did you use an IR filter, or convert an old body? I've got an IR filter and have been wanting to do some IR shots, but sadly IR in a desert wasteland looks just like normal B&W.

Thanks for the compliment. Luckily, there's lots of green vegetation in Hawaii for the IR at stand out.
First, I considered buying a converted camera on ebay, but I wasn't too keen on paying $250 or so for a camera that I would use occasionally. Next, I bought a couple of IR filters, and wasn't satisfied with them - the exposure times were too long for hand-held photos with the darker filters. Then, I found Kolari Vision, who would convert your camera for a nominal fee. Better yet, if you had a model that they hadn't converted, they would do it for $49, which fit right in with my pocketbook.
Of course, it will take IR color shots too, but I bought it mainly for B&W. It just takes a little brightness/contrast correction in Photoshop for the IR effect to stand out.
