I have no idea if your oil pan will interfere with the VW skid tray...if it interferes with it, it will likely do so with the other skid trays as they make to fit the VW oil pan...however I think most oil pan brands make to fit the full thin aero tray, so it should be OK.

The front exhaust tunnel tray, if you are trying to fit the long cover, you will have to bend the side wings, & you can buy the cross bar that the 2wd have & use longer bolts & bolt it to the propshaft support bracket..I state part numbers in the how to guide at the beginning of this thread..

Versus are the only people that I know of who make a big rear diffuser...

My front tunnel cover saw speeds over 140mph at Watkins Glen. No issues but it was secured with reinforced Thomas and Betts cable ties rather than pins




I've only been running the Verus rear diffuser for a week but it seems to work well at high speeds. I'm looking forward to testing it out soon on track :)
Do you have any pictures of it on the car? Kindly spoken, how does it feel different, if you can explain.

Anyone aware of any fitment issues with using the FRP skid plate with brackets and a CTS FMIC? Based on the pictures here, the IC hoses don't appear to sit any lower than the stock ones.

I don't believe it's a height issue. The brackets that are added and mount to the front of the plate will block a FMIC's hoses.

How so? The FMIC hoses follow the same path as the stock ones, except that they go to the front of the IC stack instead of the middle. Is there a fitment diagram or picture that shows where the brackets go? I haven't been able to find one yet.
