and with a wind tunnel, they got .1 cd out of this? Really effective. I'm sure your car was perfectly engineered to the point that you couldn't mod it to get better mileage out of it either? No? Well then....

In any case... it should be able to be done WITHOUT enclosing it... especially if you have a wind tunnel at your disposal. Unless they are just trying to make it look cool or something. I really think that the nascar style of front bumper being fairly flat across the front is probably the best solution. They probably just wind tunnel tested different shapes a million times and ended up with something that simply streamlined the front bumper... and the air curtain was a side effect.
