Closing off Air intake Grille


#1

What are the negative aspects that would result from sealing shut the air intake grille located between the engine compartment hood and the windshield, in this case on a 1961 Dodge Pick-up truck?


#2

Maybe none if you describe where you will be picking up the intake air instead.


#3

Often this is where air for the HVAC comes from.


#4

I would mean you would no longer be able to get fresh air into the car with out opening a window. Personally I would advise against it.


#5

You could choke to death on the bad air. You don’t want to be dead for life.


#6

Harmless to both car and driver but your fresh air must come from an open window.
