I don’t believe you need to with the vcm unit as majority of air comes through the grill section and comes through the lower part

Think u might be right I had a look and yeah looks like heaps air comes through the grill the way the intake sits in, with the radiator tilted back.

I had my VCM installed by C&A Autofashion - they cut the strip to size to accomodate it

No harm in cutting or removing it altogether mate I run the vcm Otr with the bonnet strip removed completely

I run my VCM OTR with the strip cut to either side of the housing. Just for that little bit of extra air flow ;)
