Default Does Anyone Know What This Part Is

I have this part hanging kin of low under the front of the car around the suspension and transmission. I can't seem to identify it in the service manual and it sure seems low. So not being being able to identify I can't figure out what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not exactly sure from the picture, although it looks like your exhaust shield has broken off and is hanging.

If I'm not mistaken, it's what re-directs the air to go behind the engine, by the firewall. That area get very hot and you need some ventilation to cool it off a bit.

Looking at it again that looks like that's what it is, although I must be missing that piece myself.

A lot of people bend it up or remove it completely. It sits below the front subframe, so I wouldn't doubt people taking it off if lowered

I'm going to have to fab a scoop like that. You are right Rani, I was thinking about this myself, there is a LOT of heat at bank1. Even bank2 on the 6th. In the 6.5 its a little less as the bumper opening is much larger.

Thanks for all of the replies(help). It must be a redirect air scoop. It doesn't appear to have any breaks in it. I can not for the life of me find it as a part in any section of the service manuals.

It is low though, in fact was driving through the mountains in NC (gravel road) heard a big scrape now it's bent backwards. Have to get home and put on ramps to diagnose further. Seems to run fine.

I just got the car and don't think it is lowered but that part sure is low.

Thanks for the suggestions will check out further this week.
