The ZR-1 front splitter is designed to help with down force, it is supposed to keep the front of the car on the ground and it does its job well. On a non C6 ZR1 Corvette, the stock splitter does an effective job trying to help route additional air flow. But in the end it pales in comparison to the ZR1 and its ability to not only provide additional cooling but also the aforementioned down force. In the end, where you will see the difference is at higher speed and in track settings. Outside of that, I would guess that the change would have to suit you in regards to the looks and difference visual cues.
