I absolutely LOVE the opening in the front and am glad ford was smart for putting it there and moving the front license plate out of the way and letting as much air as possible pass over it. I do understand the concerns from those going off-road in their BRAND NEW trucks though
A mere grille will not hurt performance of a charge air cooler... I know many turbo vehicles (my turbo Volvo, big trucks, etc.) that actually have the CAC behind the radiator, condenser, and tranny cooler or what have you. They do just fine.
