Does anyone know what bumper/splitter this is?

http://www.iforgedlifestyle.com/images/auto9961.jpg

The GT3 bumpers I think look kind of "bulbous" and do not fit the 986 body that well even with the side skirts. The one on this 996 just seems to be leaner looking and more aggressive overall. I am not sure if it is a one piece bumper or if the lower piece just slips over a factory bumper kind of like the GT3tek rear diffuser. I have never really been a huge fan of the 996 but with prices getting ridiculously low, it is has started to creep into my mind, the idea of purchasing one (white looks nice) and doing something like the one in the photo along with some black modern fuch rims, ducktail and some carrera side decals....sort of a modern '73 rs look.

Did some google searching under "996 front splitter" and it seems it is a techart piece.

Techart makes some great body pieces. I have a Techart front splitter ready to put on my car when it returns from the mechanic. $1K but it was just the look I was looking for and Techart is as closest to factory as you can get.
