Default Supra MKIV Front Grill

When I bought my JDM supra I noticed that the intercooler area on the front bumper was quite exposed. I think I remember reading somewhere that they opted to not use any sort of front grill to save from adding weight to the car. Is this true? If so do any of you with stock front bumpers and intercoolers have a grille added?

*edit here is a picture I took of my front bumper.

wow no offense but that looks kinda gross, they could have dropped weight elsewhere!

They opted not to use a grill primarily so that air flow to the radiator and intercooler would not be restricted.

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.
