Question EK Hatchback Aero Mods???

I have a 1997 civic hatchback, lowered on coilovers, D16y8 swap (VTEC)
I also average 56-60 mph on an 80 mile one way drive to work.

So I am looking for any aero mods that have been proven to work on the hatchback.
I am thinking first I want to build drag wing (which is like a partial kammback).
Second would be a front splitter.
Then underbelly pan and rear rear diffuser.
Beyond that is minor things like mirror delete and grill blocks.
I am not interested in gutting the interior and stereo however (I do spend 3 hours a day in it after all)

Am I missing anything?
Is there anylinks to something similar?

Mainly looking for specifically the EK Hatchback links, I can find plenty from the EG and some for EK sedans but nothing on EK hatches (that I have found)

Everything you mention,except a splitter (nothing but induced drag) will help,especially the Kamm extension at the hatch.Wheel covers unless you can't stand the look.Wheel skirts ditto.Nothing will help as much as added length at the rear (boat-tailing).
