1997-2004 C5 Front Spoiler Set with Hardware

Restore your Corvette's original allure while ensuring optimal radiator airflow with this replacement front spoiler set, designed to be mounted in the factory locations. While your original hardware can be used, missing screws are common if the spoiler has been pulled off the car by a troublesome parking curb or incline. Featuring a correct OE fit and finish, this spoiler kit is an easy way to restore functionality and that factory fresh feel to your C5!

This kit is important, but the center spoiler is critical to proper airflow and cooling. This section aids in directing air from under the front end of the vehicle up through the radiator. During testing, we removed the center spoiler from a 1998 convertible. Engine operating temperature increased by an average of 10 degrees while driving with the front spoiler removed. This spoiler kit is manufactured from black urethane and includes the stamped steel reinforcement bracket and tension springs on the center section.

    • Fits 1997-2004 Corvettes
    • Fits All C5 Models
    • 13 Piece Kit
    • OE Fit & Finish
    • Black Molded Urethane Construction
    • Stamped Steel Reinforcement Bracket

    Corvette Aerodynamic Body Kits

    Corvette Aerodynamic Body Kits: Front To Rear

    Build The Corvette Of Your Dreams!

    Your Corvette sends a clear message to other drivers about your passion for America's Sports Car. Customize that message with exterior accessories available at Mid America Motorworks. Grilles, side cove screens, rear valances and more create a sleek look that reflects your personal style!

    Besides good looks, Corvette Aerodynamic Body Panels give many functional benefits to your Corvette's performance and handling. From improved downforce to brake cooling, Mid America Motorworks provides the right equipment to make your Corvette run faster and more efficient.

    Corvette Aerodynamic Body Panels

    Front Splitters

    Corvette Splitters are a modification to the body of your Corvette. Attached to the bottom of the front bumper, splitters look like a flat scoop that extends out from the bottom of the car.

    Without a Splitter: As your Corvette reaches high speeds, air pressure builds up at the front of the car. A lot of this high pressure creates low speed air that ends up underneath the car. With only low pressure air above the car exerting itself on top, the car experiences lift, causing the front of the car to lighten up. This results in reduced traction on the road.

    With a Splitter: Splitters act like a wedge that forces the high pressure air upwards where it builds up around the bumper and migrates up and over the top of your Corvette. The low pressure creates high speed air that passes underneath your car. Combined with the high pressure air that is passing over the top of your Corvette, lift is reduced, resulting in a positive downforce. This gives your Corvette more traction as it hugs the road. A combination of a splitter with a front air dam, or openings on the front bumper, direct the extra air into productive avenues, such as into the brake or radiator cooling ducts.

    Aerodynamic body upgrades, in general, are for redirecting air to carry out various functions. Front splitters have a lot to offer in looks and functionality. However from a styling and aerodynamic aspect, front splitters are not the only game in town! It is actually possible to get the same performance gains with a quality front lip spoiler. Like a front splitter, a front lip spoiler attached to the front bumper of your Corvette improves downforce and aerodynamics while providing protection and styling to the front bumper. Front splitters include an under body tray that aids in rigidity and improving downforce. Front lip spoilers perform to a lesser extent, but are a cost efficient upgrade for aggressive good looks.

    Wheel Deflectors

    Front wheel deflectors attach to the OEM wheel well liner mounting points located inside the front fascia at the front of the wheel well opening of your Corvette. These deflectors mount at the lower attaching point where the wheel deflector meets the spoiler or splitter.

    Wheel Deflectors

    Front wheel deflectors are designed to push airflow around the rotating wheel more efficiently to reduce lift and drag. Front wheel deflectors are available in two designs. One with spats and one without spats.

    Wheel Deflectors

    Wheel deflectors with spats have an “L” shaped end that supports and braces the underside and the end of your spoiler or splitter.

    Wheel deflectors without spats function the same, but the lower end does not fit under the spoiler or splitter and simply "butts against" the spoiler or splitter.

    Front Canards/Winglets

    Front canards are tall wings (think RPO Z07) or smaller winglets (think Z06 front splitter) attached to the front splitter or spoiler of your Corvette for the purpose of modifying the aerodynamic characteristics of your car.

    The most common use of canards is to increase front downforce on Corvettes where the balance of traction is considered to be unfavorably biased towards the rear wheels. The canards, once installed, provide additional downforce at the front of the vehicle, adjusting the balance of traction and thus improving the handling characteristics of the car.

    Front Canards and Winglets

    Side Skirts

    Side skirts prevent lateral high pressure air from moving underneath your Corvette. The addition of side skirts also assists in re-purposing the air from behind the front wheels to create additional downforce and added vehicle stability.

    Side skirts are somewhat similar in principle to splitters. As your Corvette reaches high speeds, air pressure builds up at the front of the car. A lot of this high pressure, low-speed air ends up underneath the car, and with only low pressure air above the car exerting itself on top, the car experiences lift, causing the front of the car to lighten up. This results in reduced traction on the road. Side skirts also help reduce unwanted paint damage from rocks and other road or track debris.

    Side Skirt

    Side Vents

    Side vents can be seen behind the front or rear wheels, allowing for airflow to exit the wheel wells which typically remains turbulent from the rotation of the wheels. These can also be used to channel out hot air from the engine bay or direct cool air to the brakes.

    Various images of side vents

    Rear Diffusers

    A rear diffuser is a portion of the rear end shaped to create a location of increasingly larger air volume below the rear of your Corvette that reduces turbulent airflow. This allows for fast-moving, low pressure air underneath the car to accelerate and expand at the rear of the vehicle.

    The diffuser helps to accelerate the air underneath the car which reduces its pressure and improves downforce.

    Rear Diffuser

    Rear Spoilers & Wings

    Spoilers and wings are different than the other handling adjustment tools for several reasons.

    • The magic of a spoiler or wing is that they produce a load on the tires, which translates to increased cornering speeds.
    • Stronger acceleration out of the corner without wheel-spin.
    • The downforce produced by the wing increases with vehicle speed and therefore the speed of the air over the wing increases. However, this creates a concurrent increase in aerodynamic drag that slows the car's straight line speed but greatly improves cornering speeds.
    Rear Spoiler and Wing

    Rear Wicker

    Wicker Height: These spoilers can be changed rapidly to tune the aero of a wing, with larger wickers generally giving more downforce.

    Wicker Span: On wings it is common for wickers to not run the entire length of the wing. As the span (or width) is reduced, the effectiveness or downforce of the wicker will also be reduced, however the drag and turbulence created by the wicker is reduced. Because of the large impact of front end turbulence on the flow over the car and to the rear wing, a smaller/ narrower wicker does sometimes produce more overall downforce than a larger one.

    Rear Wicker

    NACA Ducts

    These air scoops are designed to have minimal impact on airflow over the top of your Corvette while still creating an inlet for airflow. They can be used in nearly any application that requires airflow to enter the engine bay for cooling. Whether that's feeding an air intake, a radiator or even cooling for a driver.

    NACA Ducts

    Hood Extractor

    Hood extractors allow for a clean exit for the air passing through the radiator, and they also help to maintain airflow through the engine bay, increasing cooling capabilities.

    Stand Out With Carbon Fiber

    Carbon fiber accessories will certainly give your Corvette an aggressive, racing inspired look, but it doesn't stop there. Carbon fiber is approximately 20% stronger and stiffer than even the best fiberglass and absorbs energy at a higher rate. Carbon fiber and fiberglass share some similar attributes, but carbon fiber will always be stronger, stiffer, and lighter. Give your Corvette a whole new competitive edge.
