its more of an apperiance issue. WOnt really make a difference in performane i doubt. My evaporator is all bent too, maybe if i straighten them out the car will cool better. 80)
SHould not really make a differnece. WHen i get mine im thinking of placing a black net over it with some 1/4" spacers on all 4 ends so that bug screen wont be flush. This s hould help deflect some stones etc.
