True - ha they must be sick of me.

You'll have to take a look at the amount of return you're going to get vs. the cost to install aftermarket. I searched fordparts.com for the price of the parts alone, but couldn't find the AGS listed. I would think it will be pretty costly to install and with a 2% or so return on fuel economy, it will take a long while to recoup the expense.

I can't find the parts either - I'd like to know how worthwhile it is too.

Everything necessary for the AGS in hardware appears to be listed with the black rectangle for part/ assembly 8475, which is listed on ford parts for $607.74 in the U.S.

Under Cooling, click on the Radiators, Coolers and Related Components sub category and scroll down/ search for kysor radiator shutter. Don't do a top level search for it as it won't find it that way.
