i'm ging to guess its just an air dam. It wont hurt anyting to remove it. I know Oaisis(Nick) did remove his on his 96 and he likes it better, its more of a cosmetic part.

It's called your lower valance. I have a mini billet grille in the opening. It serves no real purpose but can protect the bottom engine components a little from rock/debris. It is held on by four 7mm (I think) and like 6 of the plastic push in things that are a pain in the *** to take out.
