In my opinion, the screen mesh is a little small. It's not that I think that it would affect airflow, but I'm not sure how much good it will do protecting the IC. It might be useful as a bug screen, but I'd have to imagine that it is a bear to clean.

I would think it is more effective to use a larger gauge wire screen (probably 1/4 inch openings) to guard against rocks and debris that might actually break through the smaller screen and damage the IC/radiator.

Living in New Jersey,, I wouldn't put that on.. We get snow around here, and if it packs up on that screen, the IC won't get any airflow. That would probably do better on the west coast or Florida with all the bugs that would get caught in the IC.... Good idea though..
