I don't know if they can still get them:

Next time my lip may be an actual kansai service one.  These are getting old.

It's an air guide. It's built into the shroud that comes with the kit. There's one on the other side from the factory.

Yep. That's stock greddy. It mirrors the OEM one.

HKS doesn't have the divider, at least for the CBAs.

 

I made this to prevent debris reaching the radiator:

I was going to market it, but it's too difficult to make a universal fit due to the different ways people cut out the blank.

I guess the divider helps to spread some of the airflow towards one side of the cooler? I wonder if it's worth putting in for the HKS one.

Greddy tends to copy OEM design cues rather than innovate much on them. They may have just copied the stock duct inverted.

Considering the testing that HKS did on their kit, hard to say that it is required. But it might help a little.
