Anyway, Maxx, the vintage bumpers pretty much all are designed for housing a front oil cooler to give you maximum cooling.

The 90's bumpers tend not to have room for a front cooler.

If you drive your car hard on some of the hotter days of summer you can get a sense of whether you might want a front cooler for extra protection. I like mine because it is hot in Virginia.
Yeah, I'm thinking of keeping the car looking factory stock. Some of the pics above look great, but I like what Porsche did to update the look in the early 90s (964)? If I can find some glas versions like that, I would be happy. Again too, the big key that I didn't first think of is losing 50 lbs per bumper..... I don't know how much that changes my power to weight ratio, but gaining fresh looks and performance at the same time, it's a win-win all the way around.
