Product：Side Intake Mesh Grille Insert
Fitment：For Corvette C8 2020-Up
Material: CNC laser cut from aluminum and then powder coated in a black finish to blend in front of your inlets. We’re the only ones out there who took the time to create this bolt in solution with a custom machined punch pattern to match the OEM style.
1. An OEM like side inlet guards solution! Protect your radiator (Z51 owners) and intake inlets from unwanted road debris and rocks! Includes drivers & passengers side.
2. Easy install with a bolt in OEM point to create a sturdy and OEM like grill guard that should have been there from the factory. These have been track and road tested to withstand whatever you throw at them, or what gets thrown at you.
OEM style design and look：
Uses OEM bolt in location – No cheesy zip ties.
CNC laser cut Aluminum (Not plastic, so it won’t crack.)
Track tested and approved. Handles 180+ MPH. Does not impede airflow.
Durable powder coat finish.
PLEASE NOTE: These are engineered and designed to not cover the entire opening. The entire opening does not need protection. These are designed to protect Z51 radiators, and not hinder intake path. Testing showed there is no good way to secure a guard that extends all the way up into the top as it deflects under track conditions. These will protect the Z51 radiator from rocks and keep most debris like leaf’s out.
Package： 1 Pair Side Intake Mesh Grille Insert（with Accessories）
