Back about 8" and up about 4" from what I can remember. I'll double check on Monday if you like.

Couple of questions/comments:
Really clean, nicely thought out and well-executed work.
Why the NACA ducts under the engine? With the splitter and other aero work, I thought the object was to reduce pressure under the car. Aren't you spilling air out of these ducts when air should be coming out the top (hood area and perhaps top of fenders)?
Why no use of Dzus fasteners? I'm seeing what look like captive bolts.
Lastly, After all the fancy custom fab work that's been done why cheap-out on the steering wheel shaft support with stacked pieces of square tubing? Not adjustable? Will it be hidden?
Really, I'm very jealous. Hope mine is half as nice when I'm done.

SOLID update IAG!

That undertray is insane. Looking forward to seeing the sideskirts that will work with that! Any reason you guys didn't go with tunnels?

Anxiously awaiting more updates!

with the amount TIC have been harassed about their flat-bottom i can't help but think if you were to make one that bolts up to the stock body/exhaust setup it would sell like hotcakes.

The naca ducts in the splitter are to allow air coming through the radiator to escape. Since it's mounted low and tilted downward, that air isn't going to want to travel up out of the hood. There are vents in the hood to allow engine bay pressure to escape but additional venting is needed down low. Dzus fasteners aren't strong enough for the aero pieces but they are being used for the bumpers. Steering column support gets the job done, and it'll be hidden behind the dash.

Tunnels are much more complicated to design and get proper aero balance based on guesswork. Also more difficult to integrate into the car with clearance everywhere. Flat bottom made a lot more sense.

It's some sort of aluminized barrier.

Most people who would want a flat bottom are probably using nothing close to stock parts so an off the shelf piece doesn't make a lot of sense. There are a lot of other things you have to do to keep things cool if you want to do it so it will require a lot of custom work anyway.

Loving the NACA ducts! I have been looking for that size and style for a while now, but I can never seem to find them without a hose attachment, unless I get the APR ones.

Where would one get these?

Hey I just clicked through the 73 pages of this impressive build.

Just thought I'd suggest something about your v-mount. Due to the angle of your intercooler and radiator the air will most probably have trouble going through the fins on both cores, the only reason I suggest you look at this, is processwest did the same setup on version 1 of their v-mount setup and had troubles with high temps, after thought they made the stepped radiator to bring temps right down with great result on their version 2 v-mount setup.

Just a thought before you throw it on the track and have to come back for more r&d because of temperature issues.

Good luck with the rest and hope its on the track soon.

Angled fins really aren't necessary, the key is using efficient cores and properly ducting air into them. For example, take a look at the radiator on a daytona prototype. It's mounted almost horizontal but uses straight fins and well designed entry/exit ducting.

This is an amazing build! A lot of questions and concerns about my 2011 wrx build are being answered, and some more being made Haha. I have no doubt it wont end too short of this level of insanity. And I can't wait! I look forward to seeing this finished, its so beautiful... Brings a tear to my eye..

Spent the whole morning reading the entire 73 page build. Outstanding read, probably the best GD racecar I have ever seen.
