I can't find the picture someone posted about undertray, but I'm thinking about making one of aluminum that'll bolt to the bottom of the factory R-lip and go back under the car about to the front of the doors.. All one piece.

Edit: Found it!

I was going to do the same thing, but I still don't think the car is going to have enough air through the heat exchangers.

Hm.. Are you thinking that would block exit for air through the exchangers, or are you just wanting to open up the front bumper more?

I want to open the front. I don't see how its possibly going to work without it.

I'm going to put a lip on the back side to create a pressure differential. I will still need more air in the mouth.
