Wicker bill or not?

I'm looking at getting a wicker bill for the Z/28 and was wondering if anyone has already done so and thought it was worth the money.

If you are tracking with it, it is definitely worth it. If you aren't tracking I wouldn't do it.

Unless you just like the look. Your $. Your choice.

Totally not required on the street, but I have one because I like the look (I don't track mine).

Does anyone have actual performance stats for the wicker bill?
How much down force does it add?
How does it affect top speed and/or acceleration?
I'm curious because I track mine, and would consider adding it it there was a noticeable performance improvement.

it's a pretty profound difference on the road course.

randy pobst described the z/28 as "loose and sucky" without the wicker bill.

Hmmm, where does one purchase one of these wickerbills?
Are they after market or through GM? Or both?
Is this the add-on that requires drilling of the existing rear spoiler?

Ok, searched the forum...
Seems like many choices out there
I would certainly want aesthetics and performance, so I will do some research

Personally, I would go OEM if you're interested in performance. GM spent countless hours in their wind tunnel fine tuning the z/28 aero.

Found it on the GM website $395 list
http://www.chevrolet.com/performance...parts/z28.html

I think it comes with black hardware, which I like.

I do like the aerosportsconcepts versions as well, and they come in a few different adjustable heights
