We are currently testing how the guard effects aerodynamics, vehicle cooling (hard when it's cold outside) and wind noise. So far everything looks great!

Those are some great ideas....

Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

Thanks for the photo. I always wondered what that hole was for! LOL! On the 5.7L the sump plug is not positioned there, so the hole just seems arbitrary.
