radiator deflector/ with pics ..you got to check this out

:shock: HI EVERYBODY..Please read .if intrested please pm or phone me 07969 913777....as ive got a local company willing to make these up..check um on the net they sell for £60-80.will be cheaper than this and the quality is outstanding..pics soon..cheers mike... ...Up to 20% of the air that enters the front of the car through the radiator grille is lost upwards between the slam panel and the underneath of the bonnet.
the polished stainless steel cover directs all of that wasted cold air through the radiator giving a cooler and more efficient coolant system. The radiator air deflector forces more air through your radiator increasing efficiency, engine longevity and reducing engine temperatures.
Air enters the grill of the WRX/STI and is pushed through the radiator cooling the motor. Some air escapes around the top of the radiator limiting its efficiency.
The radiator deflector easily mounts under the hood, bridging the gap between the panel support and radiator. This limits the amount of air that can escape over the radiator, forcing more air through the radiator core. This simple bolt on piece will increase performance and accent you're under hood performance modifications.

The radiator air deflector is made of polished stainless steel and is therefore corrosion resistant.
