NEW T3 Functional SS MailSlot / Rad Support

Product link is Here

The 5th Gen Camaro SS is instantly recognized by its signature bumper mail slot. The feature is derived from Chevrolet's racing heritage, by the time GM engineers integrated it into production it became a cosmetic feature.
With the ACS T3 Rad Support, you can finally utilize the mail slot and let the cold air into the engine compartment and enhance cooling.
Ideally installed with our T3 Hood ports the T3 rad support can be used with or without.
Bumper will need to be removed for installation and trimming of the mail slot area is required.
Panel is sold primed and can be painted any colors to enhance your engine compartment!

Thanks Chris,

It is a must have piece for any SS Owner... i have some primed in black. My suggestion is maybe to go with gold on your car, It wont show much from outside but it will be a nice touch when you pop the hood at shows.

There are a few options, the simplest being, to remove the front hood seal in this section.

I will have to look at this and see exactly how it will go on but I would definately like to go this route. Add this along with Hex hood vents and you are moving out some serious hot air. I live in Texas and it gets hot here real quick.

Imagine ona good cool day all the cold air this would bring into the engine bay!!!

I love the idea of the mailslot being more than cosmetic but from the photos & renderings it looks like the air is diverted up directly into the rubber weather strip that seals against the hood & not down into the radiator area. Am I looking at it wrong? If the air is taken upwards do you cut the weather strip to let air into the engine bay or does it just flow around to the outside edges of the hood? Either way it seems the added function is purely cosmetic since either of those options wouldn't aid in cooling a water cooled engine in any way. Again, am I looking at it wrong?

Our parts are all made in RTM, a composite material made by injection. Very strong and durable, same material we have built over 75000 panels for both GM and Ford ;-)

Thank you for the fast response.

Is there any benefit for someone to add this without an aftermarket heat extraction solution? I do not know how circulation works in the stock engine bay, but it seems this would just be introducing more air to heat until you can extract it.

Just trying to do prudent planning =)

Additional note.

My main concern is creating a circulation issue until heat extraction is possible. Just want to avoid this.

With only getting the functional mail slot kit, you are pressurizing the engine bay, thus forcing the hot air to be forced out from underneath.

Ideally you can get out T3 hood and go for the optimal setup.

With the wife needing a new car I wouldn't be getting both, but any special offers for other members who might want a package deal?

Call it the ACS Ultimate Heat Extraction Package (if the idea takes off I just want a discount on the ports .

This is something in the works, T3 Bumper Ports, SS Mail Slot and Hood ports in one box. We can package all 3 for $999.
