This is consistent with what LLTEK told me, since the valence has deep as possible air scoops to direct air, you need to trim them and bring the mesh closer. What I meant was the valence was deeper because it was more square than the original grill inserts which rounds up, thus more area frontage, but I totally agree with Apikol that you would have to trim the large air scoops...

Thanks for your interest in Apikol.
I don't have any pictures here, but we should have
some, or we can get some.  

One of our customers has installed the LLtek valence
after our intercooler install.  The valence allows for
much less room between the bumper and the AC condenser
for the intercooler. To solve this, they removed the
bumper, and trimmed away some of the inset (made it 
so that the grills were not so deep back in the
bumper) and replaced the grill.
The biggest problem is making plumbing pass the side
grills. Unfortunately, the only car around here with
the LLTek valence, does not have one of our

To answer your question, there is less room behind the
LLtek valence than stock, but to the best of my
knowledge, you can make it work by trimming back the
insets, and moving the grills out.  

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
