What do the guards look like under the 2002 turbo flares? I assume they're chopped, but I've never seen a turbo with the flares off...

Also, what does the front clip look like under the turbo spoiler? Is there a slot cut so that the main hole feeds the radiator?

Cheers

MAN, is that a pretty undercarraige OR WHAT!

I would love to build a car from the ground up.

Not going to happen, but I can dream.

Thanks C.D. for always sharing your knowledge and pictures.

Thanks guys!

The Guards are as I expected, but the air dam holes go nowhere... odd? I know the round hole is for the compressor intake, but I'm surprised about the rectangular one. Mine is a twin round hole, so, maybe I'll make them brake cooling ducts, or perhaps fog light positions?

I'm assuming the little tiny hole is for a towing eye?

The center hole is for the oil cooler, the single round hole on the right side does not feed air the the Turbo air inlet. It ducts air through a 90 deg bend tube tha blows air ON the turbo for cooling. The air intake is a hole in the core support just ahead of te air filter housing on the upper right side of the engine bay.
