Bump for Jim Hall who seems to be resurrecting all the ZR1 splitter threads. Jim, you looking for some aero help for the Texas mile?

Yep. You got that right.

My eyesight is finally returning to normal. I must have been quite the bore at the Autobahn.

Can I hire you to come out and do this?

What a great write up Sean. Thanks so much.

Did you get the new connector hose. That should solve your issue.

I agree,--------Mr. Moderator are you listening?

We need a DIY section at the top of the page for all of these great write up and photo installs these guy's are doing.

Great work to all of you guy's that have posted photo's of your installs.

Sorry we didn't get to chat more at TA09. There was so much track time I hardly got a chance to take a pee before it was time to hop back in the car

I'm actually away with my wife right now making amends for missing Mothers Day at the track. The new hose should be at the house when I get back tomorrow - thanks for that.

Default ZR1 Splitter

Thanks for the instructions. How long did the removal of the facia take. Because I use my car one the track and street I am considering changing back to the Z06 splitter when not on the track to avoid damage. Is this practical?

I'm confused. Why the need to remove the ENTIRE fascia? Is it merely to install the support piece?

Compare to this thread where installing the splitter (after market) entails just a few screws that hold the splitter on.

Default ZR 1 Splitter

Interestingly our cars look nearly identical and I am sure the cars spend equal time on the track. I am considering the install of the splitter at the same time I install a tow hook and have the following questions:

I know these changes a sutle, but could you feel any difference?
How long did the installation take?
My stock spliter on the Z06 takes a beating on the street so I was thinking of changing the stock for the ZR1 when on the track. What do you think

I've had the fascia off twice and it obviously gets easier with practice. If all your worried about is the splitter than all you need to swap out is the splitter and leave the support in place. This seems very doable and I've even considered removing the spitter to load/unload from the trailer. It's ~12 screws.

While I'd had to see mine get damaged if it does it'll give me an excuse to buy the Katech unit with the brake ducts and undertray.

Yes, I had to remove the fascia to install the support. If you're not worried about the fascia deforming at speed then don't install it but there are some great shots floating around of what the Z06 fascia does at high speed (looks like the car is screaming ).

Honestly I am on such a steep learning curve with this car that I can't definitely say I felt a difference. The wind tunnel data does show that it makes a difference so I think as my butt dyno gets better calibrated I would be able to feel a difference.

I did the installation over a couple days and obviously took a lot of time to take picture and notes along the way. I'm not sure how long it would take to do again but I wouldn't start in my driveway an hour before dark.

Poor-sha, Great post.

Tow hook post??

I got the Phoenix eye hook kit since that was should a great tow hook and it was gone after the track event and installed in seconds just before the track event.

You did a FANTASTIC job on this DYI POST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It helped our install and made it all make sense.

Just used this writeup to take my Z06's bumper off. The grill had cracked from some flying roadkill hitting it (don't ask, damn Raccoons), and I took it off to clean up the shtanky mess and replace the grill. I probably would have broken something without your detailed write up - and it is saving me a bunch of money as opposed to going to a dealership to have it done.

THANKS!!

Ready to install new ZR1 splitter on my 2007 Z but is the reinforcement piece really necessary for normal street and highway driving?

Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
