|frizz||Yup. You just need two of the fasteners from the snorkel.|

|stuff1138||I'm going to have to grab one. It just slips into the existing hole right?|

|Tigeo||^^^Yep...$3 well spent. I did mine too..may as well just plan on it when you remove the snorkel.|

|frizz||I put in the $3 velocity stack that the ST uses and it sure seems to further improve smoothness at low RPM. Really, for $3 if it's just placebo effect, it's worth it.|

|Tigeo||The way to check is to turn on the car, hop out and look into the front grill. You should see them open/close as a check routine when the car is started.|

It is possible to LOOK into the front and see the shutters. On my car I have seen them open, and at other times closed with the engine off and the car parked.
If they never opened the car would certainly overheat.
If they never closed? Not much except a small decrease in mpgs.

There should be a way to measure the states using a scan tool such as Ford's IDS tool, but otherwise I'm not sure exactly.
In winter especially with a cold engine and the heat and defrost running the shutters are usually fully closed. They tend to change states depending on vehicle speed and load as well as required engine cooling temperature.
