Default aero parts

Was hoping to get some input from people. I want to make some aero for my car (splitter, diffuser, etc)

How would I know/determine size and shape? Or do I just make it and hope it gives some improvement? Also what materials to use?

Thanks for any input (hope this is the right category for this thread)

Little car info:
2001 Rsti. Gutted with autopower roll bar. Built a car long time ago with hopes of doing auto-x and road coarse. Currently I'll probably be driving around town and maybe auto-x it's not a dd (racecar wannabe)

a lot of time researching designs. For example how much to extend the splitter or how much of an angle the diffuser needs to be at. Make templetes put of cardboard and make out of whatever material want. Honestly until you start needing it you don't need it andmoneey can be invested elseware. Just my 2 cents.

Default Same here!!

I'm looking to do the same thing but I'm not doing it as a project but more as a money saver my question is, is it? I looked into doing it with a mud flaps but I wanted nice 1/4 inch thick material. I later learned that it would probably cost the same as buying the basics rally amour ones.

Here's what look I'm looking for really like the brackets on the front lip

Thanks. For info
I just want to do something for the front end atleast.
I want to build my first prototypes out of home depot supplies and just improve from there.

Car weights 2700lbs and once tuned I should be in min 300. I also have v6 spoiler and sti roof spoiler now. On 260hp car easily broke traction.
