To me it becomes obvious that I made some mistakes in designing my pan.
For maximum effectiveness it needs to be sealed to the wheel wells. Or as best as possible. Also the mid section is not nearly as important as the for and aft sections. Lastly , air should be allowed a low speed exit point. No fairing needed. In the skyline's case they use the exhaust tunnel. I'm slowly compiling my improvements to be made this spring.

sohc + 5spd = 50mpg
