Just got back from JF pro. Picked this up and got to meet Jack and Slavs.

Thanks to JeffM for the kick in the ass.

It's personal preference.  I like the IE air dam, but I also think it needs a bumper installed to complete the look.

 

(Not an IE made air dam, but same design)

 Air dams perhaps belong on track cars (although I am not convinced that they make a difference even in that application below 120 mph). On street 02s  they remind me of the whale tails on slab side early Porsches, too disco  ...they just don't look right. But that's just me.

Does anybody have pics of this dam installed on an impact bumper 2002? ETA: I see the one above and have seen others on cars with tucked impact bumpers, but I'd like to see it on bone stock impact bumpers if possible.

I'm at the same sticking point at my build, but my car has fender flares (Zender I believe), but no bumper.  I have the Zender air dam that it came with (which needs work to reuse), but when I look at the car with no bumper or air dam, it just looks so damn cool.

 

Maybe just add a Koogleworks?  Opinions?

Big bumper?  Here's my car before the tuck:
