Default Off the shelf front splitter for NA?

Anyone know if a vendor makes a pre-cut and packaged splitter for the NA chassis? I've been so consumed with all my installs over the winter that I've run out of time to make an aero setup. I'd really like to just bolt something up.

I haven't seen anything on it lately but R Theory was talking about making on with an "Early Spring" release. Might be worth sending them a message. https://www.rtheorymotorsports.com/futureprojects/

If they answer you please share! I’m in the same boat, did a bunch over winter and never touched my aero projects!

I've thought about doing this but shipping them would be a nightmare.

Would you consider offering brackets and a life sized template? I don't mind buying / cutting wood, just not quick with the engineering aspect.

There are multiple companies offering the brackets already. Kazespec, BYC, and i ran across a 3rd the other day that i can't recall.

I just bought this one and it came with a spare. Iím not sure I want to sell it though. 949 might still have the molds.

That's not a splitter.

About as off the shelf as you are going to get. If they were still making them.

I agree, but I'm also one of those people who would be more than willing to pay for a legit splitter with the ability to add an air dam easily. (If I do it then it will look like complete ***)

^ This would also be a good alternative

I spoke to Henry from Kazespec, looks like he's willing to help formulate / design a splitter for my application. He'd be willing to setup a template to cut / drill too it seems. I need to button up a few more projects then i'll be diving into this a bit further.

I also emailed R Theory and heard nothing back.

Splitter should not be mounted to a bumper cover/dam/lip.

Garagestar is going to be releasing a front splitter and rear diffuser soon to go with the recent side splitters they came out with. Looks like they'll be doing a preorder sometime in the next few months last I asked.

Their side skirts: https://garagestar.com/product/garag...a-side-skirts/

I don't know if the front splitter and rear diffuser on @merlow.aaron 's car (pictured on the page) are the garagestar prototypes or not.
