    It is to aid in aerodynamics and "fuel economy" but it is extremely minimal gains (if even noticeable). Many people remove it for aesthetic reason and never see any negative effects.

    I thought it's function was to create a low pressue area behind the radiator so that air is pulled through the grille better. Is this just smoke and mirrors?

    If you look closer...it actually directs air up towards the CAC and or pushs hot air out.
    I took mine off, but upon further inspection realised how it had a real purpose of aerodynamics, fuel economy, and cooling effects-IMO.
    I am definitely one of those cats that re- thinks the necessity for all those plastic pieces slammed under the hood & grill-lol
    I put mine back on.

    Did you just imply Josey Whales would leave his air-damn on his truck?

    Cuz if so, I feel even better that I haven't removed mine either.

    I didn't notice any changes in mileage or performance when I removed mine. Only difference is it looks better.

    Me neither, no change in mileage really and no change in Air temps.
    On the 18+ at least it doesn't look like it would direct air into the intercooler at all since there's a big bumper lip above it

    On my 14` their is a lip/notch built in to the air dam flush with the bottom of the CAC about 8-10" long :blush: that catches some lower air and directs it to the CAC.
    Pic is a pinch hard to distinguish, but their is my finger in the above said area.
    Ok....well pic sucks, kinda like the other pic-lol
