Radiator Cover-Intake Shroud

Anyone get one of these from European Parts?
I removed my shroud, a couple weeks ago.
Don't really notice any difference performance wise, but I'm showing a 1+mpg increase.
No, not much, but every little bit helps.
I guess the little bump on the stock shroud is more intrusive than I thought.
I'm NOT one to start cutting up the stock pieces either, so that's not an option.
But, at $18.16 (plus shipping) it's worth a try.
It also looks like it channels the air a bit better from the grille.
Cool!

Here's the pic of the Euro one.
Anyone seen one available from a "Stateside" supplier?

Off Topic-Gas Mileage

Me.
I get 25-26 for my daily commute. (<15 miles each way. 10 miles on the freeway, and 5 miles in the city)
Best on the highway was 35.5mpg and average 31-33mpg at 85mph.

I have the shroud on my ZX3 with a euro grill. It will need some minor mods to fit a US grill, the US shrould has 3 tabs that lock it into the grill, the euro one has 4 tabs that are located in different places.

The euro one fits tight into the ZX3 snorkle, I dont know how it will fit on the larger SVT snorkle.

You have a better pic than the one shown on the European Parts website?
Just curious as to your "fitment" to the snorkel situation.
Thanks for the reply by the way!
