    There is an extended air dam that comes with the WW Front Spoiler. I tried to leave it off and stay with the stocker, but car got alot hotter than normal.

    Once you add that spoiler extension it essentially blocks the flow of air to the stock air dam and the air is not deflected up into the rad anymore - it's deflected around the spoiler instead.

    I installed the correct air dam and temps came back down - if I scrape - it will be the air dam. WW version is at least 6" instead of the stock 3-4"

    No, if it was I would be scraping all the time. I know for sure that if I went in a lot of the lots that have soeed bumps - I'd rip the thing right off.
