yea the grille is bad... but that and the headlight rake are the only things that damage aerodynamics.

i recommend blocking the top half of the grille not the lower, blocking the top half forces air over the car where its slippery. blocking the lower half doesnt do that so well...

wow look at the size of those tires... i bet a 1-2 inch drop would help just a little...

don't waste your time or time will waste you

Just found this picture of the underside

This and the first picture are not of my car. They are from a 2006 RT with a Hemi.
My car only has dual untill exhaust about half way back.
My tires are 215/65-17 the ones in picture are 225/60-18
The little black thing by the rear bumper is to help deflect the wind from catching the bumper cover.
Here is a picture of the little black thing on the rear

Again not my car. This is another of the parts Dodge dropped on latter modles to save cost.
Thinking also of bringing the belly pan back to the rear of transmission.

a very important step to good aero is how all parts on the bottom of a car are l positioned... it seems they made the effort to align everything so the overall "landscape" roughly follows the line you'd want the air to take... some car have exhaust ans suspention componets etc hanging out in the flow...

So, why not do a complete swap on the car?

Mount the engine in the trunk, and reverse the interior and voila! instant teardrop!

You know that it would look crazy seeing that car coming at you and it looks like its in reverse.

besides, with the nice spoiler it acts as a giant airtab to help promote airflow over the whole car!

and as and added bonus, all or your doors are suicide!

Now, I ride the Eternal winds once more! And none shall ever be my master!
