If I know from the start that that the results of the testing will be more drag, I won't even waste my time with it.
Will the drag still be worse if I create a smooth channel for the air to run out the back ?
I plan to create a channel running from the passenger side window out to the back of the car. ( I'd remove the passenger seat and fold down the back seats flush.
Since this would be asymmetrical, would this lead to any problems with the test ?

In the real world, this would never be practical on a car like mine, but as I look at cars such as a VW Jetta, it seems that you could create a channel for the air that would be weather tight and would not cause extra wind noise. You could exhaust the air out slots on the back of the trunk.
