t4 /t5 splitter from acs is the best camaro splitter on the market, with the amount of abuse i have given to my splitter it should be in pieces scattered amongst the floor but instead it is in amazing condition with out 1 crack chip or broken part, the most damage on the splitter is a little scratch of paint

Installed this last night and the only confusing part is step 8 and 9. 8 Says to put a pressure clip in the center hole you drill but 9 says to put a bolt in it. Figured it was a pressure clip since there were 11 pressure clips and 11 holes drilled but it went on perfectly and I love the look!

Edit: just realized I posted in the wrong one I have the T4 Splitter but the instructions do seem the same.

I just bought this splitter but recv'd only bolts/nuts, not the push pins described above. Has there been a change in the install process? How can the nuts/bolts be installed w/o removing the fascia?

IF I install this, what's the distance between the new splitter and the floor? Is it more likely to get it scratched or damaged due to being it lower to the cement?

ACS states that it doesn't lower the ride height at all, so apparently that is the same. However, it will definitely change your "approach angle" clearance, as the car's chin will jut out further in front of the front wheels, so entering uphill driveways, parking ramps, etc, may cause problems or require you to approach slowly/diagonally to avoid nailing the splitter.

Correct, it wont lower the ride height, however, it will make your car longer...

A small compromise consider the effect ;-) when in doubt simply approach steep slopes at an angle. I have driven the T5 Splitter donw extremely steep underground driveways with no rubbing... and this is also with a lowered car.

Is the splitter on that 45th painted or is primed?

Is the factory primed finish suitable for everyday driving, i like the matte finish.

Our splitter on the 45th has our Satin Black paint finish.

Primer is not suitable for everyday driving since it wont offer any UV protection that paint will.

Went out for a little top down driving to Bristol to check out the race crowd. Then I drove to Shady Valley on The Snake (US 421) stopped by the General Store. When I left I misjudged the angle of the exit and heard a loud Scrape on my Splitter. Then I pulled over to check out the Damage. I am glad that I had put some of the plastic door edge guard on the bottom of the splitter. It took all the damage. I came home and pulled the old edge guard off and put some new on. Best $11 dollar insurance you can get for your splitter.
