Rear undertray look great! How close did you get to the exhaust? I see how you attached it on the contour of the bumper, but how did you attach it everywhere else?

Also you got pics of your WAI setup?

the tray is screwed on everywhere except the right front that has a flat panel screwed on and the bottom is zip tied to the front. I kept the plastic 4" from the exhaust. I'll be putting some thin gauge stainless on the exhaust side.

The HAI was a pain to route but I got it in there Air temps run 150-160f

I thought those temps you were talking about were pretty low. glad you got that figured out. just be careful, summer time (or even hot spring) could make that figure go too high.

I like what you did with the back. let us know how the mileage is affected and if that thing starts flapping (hopefully not).

Ha Ha... This is exactly why I asked him to post the picture of how it is secured in the front. There's something about the word flapping that I find comical .

it should be OK I used a pile of screws so flappage should not happen. I should be able to adjust the temp by adding air from the front inlet.

Nice work on the undertray and HAI.

It's so d**n cold up here in New England; I have to wait till April to have decent modding weather. I want to to some underbody sheeting and WAI on the Civic.
