With the shortest H-arms of the bodymount the entire cooling head of the engine should stick out above the body

Why do you want it lower? The higher it is, the better it works.

If you just have to get it lower, make sure you have the short H arms on it.

because at the moment the rear of the bodyshell is over a cm high off the ground i changed it to a shorter H arm that did make a difference but the rear of the lola shell is still quite high off the ground compared to over cars i see at my track and in pictures even when stationary so its not just the downforce pushing the shell down

That is an obsolete body but should still fit just fine. My avatar is actually a Lola 530 on an MRX-4

Next time dont cut the lower skirt too early. ( I usually leave few mm on the lower section ).

Cut ( and trim ) the lower skirt after you mount the body.
