What you're describing sounds like a skid plate.  Is there one similar to it on the other side of the car and in the middle kinda guarding your oil pan?

My car's missing the skid plate on the driver's side--looks like part of a possible previous owner's aftermarket intake setup (except it looks like the resonator box is still there and the stock intake is all there except for a few missing bolts).  I'm not looking at replacing mine because I'm planning on getting the Injen w/ CAE, so I'm not worried about it.

I think it's called a splash guard. Skid plates are usually made of metal and are found on trucks to prevent damage when off roading.

Yup, it's a splash guard. Take it to a shop and they'll fix it for 12 dollars. I had mine come off partly when I passed a guy at 70 mph. It started flapping in the breeze and I thought I really screwed something up, but it just turned out to be that thing.

You definately wanna get it replaced.

While on this subject, I suggest everyone go check theirs to make sure it's on tight and not ripped anyplace. &nbsp;When that thing tears itself free at 90mph, it's f'n scary! &nbsp;I'm serious. &nbsp;Go check this now. =)

if you are getting the injen intake and cai, you NEED the splash guard. &nbsp;otherwise too much crap will be hitting your filter

####. &nbsp;When anything happens at 90mph its scary. &nbsp;I was on my GSX-750 somewhere around 100, and caught a dragonfly in the chest. &nbsp;I thought I was the innocent bystander in a drive-by. &nbsp;I thought I was gonna die. &nbsp;It was scary!!
