    Wind or Air Splitters

    I was wondering if getting a wind or air splitter is worth getting. The one I'm talking about is a 1 piece lip that fits the whole length of the front bumper. Any suggestions or opinions welcomed. And would anyone know where to buy one?

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    defintaly a cool look, remember form follows function, though. Are you doing it for the looks or the performance? What do they add?

    Midwest Performance makes a front splitter. I'd post a pic of it but I can't seem to post it here. Not sure if it really serves any real benefit or function but it sure looks good and compliments the car very well.

    Front splitters do have pros and cons. Pros are they creat more frontal downforce at higherspeeds, keeping you car "more planted". With some f-bodys they could reduce the floaty feeling you get some times at highway speeds if not lowered or on stock shocks still.
    The cons can be the (depending on driving styles) eating up front tires faster due to more rolling resistance placed on the tires from more down force, also depending on design. Some cause less front ground clearance.

    OP, be careful who you go with, and make sure you have a good bodyman because most likely it won't fit properly without some adjustments. I think it looks great on the car though. Great appearance mod for the Goat.

    Mine is from 6litereater designs. It also fit like a glove. It's a 1 piece and took about 20 mins to install.
