Nice job man. That should really help force high pressure air from the center of the bumper across the entirety of the radiator.

I noticed your new front air dam looks different than the earlier one. Did you cut a new front air dam from the alumpanel so you could have a square air inlet?

Yes the first air dam had to big of an opening so I remade it. Now on to pulling the 4 cyl engine and installing the V6 to get placement for the hood duct.
