there is very little in calculations you need. Bigger actually is better.

I would love to see spare wheel area. I suspect its no longer there.

fins seperate and channelise the air. They dont add drag so large is ok.

size of tray:
You are trying to utilise the the vacuum behind the car to accelerate the air under the car. At the same time to reduce drag behind the car. For the purpose of the homebuilt splitter the unit on that car will be better then none. In the end there are ways to experiment. Plenty of info on the web. Look for some sites that deal with reducing drag co-efficient for purpose of fuel usage reduction. Take a peek at nascar, Ferrari type supercars, Le-Mans cars for ideas.
