    Does this really help or is it just for show. I see alot of drag cars with it and I was thinking about doing it. But now I cant find any picture of it. Anyone have an idea of how many holes I should drill and how larger? Please help me quick I want to do it this afternoon.

    It is supposed to reduce drag, caused from air getting trapped behind the bumper.

    "supposed to" and "will" are two completely different things... who knows, it might not do anything, and you'll be stuck with a bunch of holes in your bumper... :ph34r:

    I actually think they look pretty sweet on hondas and plan on doing it myself. And there is no definitioin for "rice" so you cant call it that. I hate when people say shiz is "rice". Everything is "rice" then.

    BTW-How many holes did you drill and how big?

    This thread is the definition of rice.

    --Dumb shit that people do to their cars because they think/it looks like it adds performance, but it doesn't.

    who said anything about performance. If you knew anything about racing and aerodynamics you would understand why people do it... anyway... I used 3 1/2" holesaw. I drilled a total of 8 holes. 4 on each side. the farthest one out is right by where the bumper starts to curve out. I used a dog tag..which is about an inch and a half to space out the holes. It was pretty easy since the bumper is plastic. Ill put a pic in my album later of what it looks like. I cant take a pic of mine becuase my digi is all screwed up. at least you will have an idea.

    Most people have a metal plate with the holes pre-drilled. I looked for a picture, but couldnt find one.

    Should have just bought the rear defuser from a VX, and still had a solid bumper.
