Default Re: Designing a classy and timeless hood with functional heat reduction

I made an appointment with our autodesk vendor to get a :cough: demo :cough: of their CFD package. I'm going to bring whatever best model of the e46 M3 I have at the time is, so we can see where the low pressure areas are on the hood (and how the side gills are).

Currently this is the best I've found. It's not 100% accurate, but it's pretty close... I think close enough to get us useful ballpark areas for vents.

That would definitely be cool to see!

It would be even cooler with a CSL setup if possible with the trunk and all. I think most of us run the trunk on here lol.

I feel pretty confident that the trunk will have no influence on the hood

I would like some spinning wheels/tires in there, for looking at the gills-- going to see if that's something we can add.

Oh yeah I know that. I think it would just be cool to see all the high and low pressure zones on the car. Especially one with a full CSL exterior like mine.

It would be very interesting to see the differences all the CSL bits made.

Well, all else equal I'd prefer a CSL as well... but this the the closest to accurate model I've been able to find, and the CSLs have all been significantly off

We are open to ideas. Once we open it all up and get a good look at everything we will see what we can come up

Just went to add some wheels to the model and have determined the car is not drawn to scale
