Does no one know what the OP is asking??

The rear Diffuser is the white under the black section on the lower rear part of the bumper.

That is a diffuser and its not oem.



OEM Type R rear

A rear diffuser can help direct airflow from the bottom of the car. It can also provide downforce as well. Think of it as a bottom rear wing.
Think of the Ferrari Enzo, it can go 200+mph yet it does not have a gaudy huge rear wing... with modern wind tunnel testing designers can create downforce by adjusting the bottom of the car.

Diffuser reduces lift and drag be directing the air so that it fills up the wake turbulence left by the tail end of the car.

It sorta does that same exact thing as the spoiler that nobody wants to put on top of their trunk.:giggle: Except of course that it directs the airflow under the car.
