Default Aero help for high power MSM

Hey guys, so just some relevant facts on my car and then ill get into my dillema

330whp 310wtq 3.63 rear EFR6258 20psi
XIDA 700/400 Gen 2
15x10UL w/ 245 Maxis RC-1
2550lbs with Hardtop installed

I was looking at the BBFW lexan spoiler, but a friend gets deals with some distributor and can get me a GTC200 with risers and a gurney flap, for $865 shipped which isn't bad at all. I know I'll have to build some kind of front aero to balance either setup, but just looking to get some insight on what people have tried before. I know the BBFW will be functional, but probably not AS functional as a proper wing on uprights.

What would miataturbo do? Do I go for the Lexan spoiler or for the GTC wing? Do I use the risers or not? I've heard of some issues with the stands being designed for an NA trunk and not really working on an NB too well. Should we get just the wing and try to make custom mounts for it? Chassis mounts? So many dilemmas here

I do have a spare trunk lid for either setup since I only do maybe 5 track days a year and the rest of the time is just spent on the street and cruising around. Probably would not permanently run either wing unless I loved the look

How much more room do you have to push that EFR? Got a build thread?

Probably 25psi, but my transmission is close to the danger zone as is so I'm not pushing it. I have a thread somewhere in the gallery called "My MSM is finished"

Just posted this in that general aero thread, nad asked mods to close this up, so follow over there
