I'm collecting parts for an aircurtain, but it would be closer to Gasoline Fumes' Civic:


The duct inlets would be 'cross-eyed'.


If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?

"An air dam can be one of those magic improvements, increasing downforce and reducing drag at the same time. It can also improve engine cooling by increasing the air flow rate through the radiator. An air dam reduces drag by reducing the rate of air flow under the car, which reduces drag caused by all of the protrusions and cavities under the car. Everything that you see under the car is a drag source, so hiding that mess behind an air dam is a simple way to reduce drag."

So, I guess the consensus is that they do work. In order to protect them would you use PPF, something like a spoiler lip guard or nothing at all?

thoughts on this design?


Could it possibly help reduce drag on my civic? Or just bling/downforce (i don't want an increase in either!)

That modest amount of splitter just keeps the air flow/pressure from spilling underneath the car too easily and provides a path to the sides of the car (in my opinion).

I've the done similar to the bottom of my conveyor belt chin spoiler with an attached rubber lip below it (see link in signature below).
