Bumper Cover Swaps... Penalty?

Okay guys... Here's a topic I haven't seen before, so I'm gonna ask the question.

 

Our bumper cover is destroyed, so I have to buy a new one. What penalties (if any) are there if I replace the cover with a more aerodynamic one that has, say, a lip, but not a splitter. Also, just for grins, let's say, just for argument's sake, that the "splitter" is part of a new bumper cover and is completely integeral... how do you separate the two items... or do you? Enquiring minds wanna know...

 

Here's some pics of what I'm asking about...

Well if it isn't OE to the car.. it isn't 0 points. Beyond that... good question.

That sounds legit... I mean, beyond some other crazy item, the most common item that someone would usually add would be a splitter right? So if you found a new bumper cover that integrated that same item that cost 10 pts, I can't imagine anyone trying to argue it should be more than a 10 pt hit...

First I would get a ruling from tech, people on the forum try really hard to figure out new ways to cost themselves points. Second if it will really be charged the same as a proper functional splitter I would go ahead and build the splitter and get an actual benefit.

I'd think the stock one would be zero. If/when we do Daytona we might use a cover from a 91 as it is more aerodynamic. I'd guess the other 2 would be at least 10 points. I'd e-mail and ask...or just show up and see.
