    front air dam

    I know that removing the air dam will cause the car to run hot...I was thinking about cutting off 1 inch at the bottom to get a little more clearance and to clean up the look of the front end. Has anyone tried this? Did the car run any hotter?
    Thanks!!!

    I would advise against it,
    It was made that size for a reason.

    Reducing the airflow across your radiator is always bad.

    Its made that way in order to draw air through the radiator. If it is crewed up, go to a GM dealer and order a new one. Ordered one last year and it was about $ 65.00.

    Bottom line, don't remove it.
