Did the group A bumper duct only appear in the 89+ MKIIIs? I can't find any pictures of earlier year factory MKIIIs with the bumper duct.

While the 89+ bumper cover is generally considered more attractive, I bet that the group A bumper duct was Toyota's answer for more cooling to make up for the more restrictive 89+ bumper?

Turbo A

89+ is NOT more restrictive, besides what ppl may think, its been documented

Dr. Jonez has a duct on his 87 or 88, and it looks mean...

Hey SuprAng, direct me to this body of evidence. I gotta see it to believe the 89+ bumpers flow more air.

You can measure it if you like, but its pretty obvious from pictures that there is acutally more open area on the 89+ bumper. The turn signals shrunk as well as the foglights. This creates the same amount of airflow in the upper grill and a larger lower grill area.

Yep... as said the 89+ flows as much air as the 87/88 does. What a lot of people never notice is just how much the corner lights got shorter.... it's quite a bit... more than enough to make up for the center 89+ "bridge"
