Has anyone taken off the front air dam under the front bumper? I think mine looks obnoxious, and I'd like to take it off, but I also know that Chevy has dumped a lot of research into the aero packages on these cars. I don't want to mess with my 60 MPG average
Twofold purpose......creates a high pressure area ahead of it to aid cooling.........creates a smooth, low pressure area behind it to keep suspension and other undercar bits from disrupting (creating drag) airflow.
No manufacturer installs anything that is not considered necessary.......probably was a group of a hundred bean counters fighting to leave it off to save a buck or two.
Engineering department won.......not pretty but effective.
Yes, but it's that ugly flat grey GM plastic black type stuff. A bit of jet black style paint might do the trick. I'm tearing the bumper off tomorrow to finish putting in the fogs, so it won't take too long. I think I'll save the lime green for the engine bay...
