    Looks good, like someone said it was very popular when I joined the forums.

    Off topic: did you know the Conquest has the same drag coefficient as an SVT Contour at .32?

    I actually didn't lol, i always thought the conquest would be more aerodynamic than the contour...looks can be deceiving i guess

    Yeah that coefficient number for the Contour does not include front air dam volume, no info on the conquest as to whether it does or not.

    Looks good! What does the bottom of the heatshield look like? Is it fully enclosed?

    No it fits snug to the wheel weel tho so no gaps and I had a RAM air type deal hooked to the bottom. I have since took it off to try to better the design.

    That's EXACTLY where I first gotbthe idea. I'm a little embarrassed to say how much time I have into, something that at the end of the day was a trash can. But it looks good.

    Mine is fully closed. I can show you some pics of it out of the car if you'd like.
