Thanks! I'll add you to the list. Did you want to add the coils in as well, or just the bracket kit?

The brackets don't interfere with the cam sensor, but I don't have a picture showing their relationship at the moment. I'll try to upload it later tonight.

Thanks for the orders!

For those that are buying multiple items, I'm planning on shipping all items together unless you notify me of alternative needs.

Any concern for the load on the cam cover bolts? I'm not an engineer, so I tend over-compensate when it comes to building parts like this, knowing the tendencies for vibration failures. My inclination would be to connect the two brackets - probably with a separate piece/bar that spans the cam cover as below. Thoughts?

Was thinking the same thing. That brace should do the trick.

On another note...DAMMIT!!! I just ordered a set of D510C coils, and will be fabbing a mount for them. If I hadn't done that, I would be ordering your setup, for sure.

M2,

Thanks for the input. I'm not at all opposed to offering a brace to connect the two brackets. At the same time, I'm not particularly worried about it,as the coils are only about 1-1/4 lb per pair. As an aside, I'm a design engineer by day, but that doesn't mean that I'm never going to miss something.

If there is enough interest, I'll have one quoted and add it as optional piece. The one caveat is that it will increase the price of the kit by $10-15 if I had to guess. As someone who has spent the better part of their earnings buying car parts, as such I'm always trying to do what I can to keep pricing reasonable.

Again, thanks for the feedback and interest in our products!

Excellent response. Prop cat awarded. It might be a preferred option for those who track their cars and experience sustained/repeated high rpm.

Stealth,

Thanks for the message.

I'm going to create the brace this weekend, and I'll post up some pictures including it. I won't have a price on it til mid next week, but once I do we can do a separate transaction for the brace, no worries.

Working on the brace for those that have inquired.

All who have ordered the LS Coil Brackets: If you get an email from us that may imply that these have shipped it is incorrect. Due to the way our payments process, we have to accept the funds in a short time or we are required to refund, which unfortunately doesn't make itself all that helpful for pre-orders.

If you receive this email, it is just us confirming we received your payment. I will be posting here as progress is made on the brackets as well as the braces. Feel free to post questions here or via PM.

Stealth,

Thanks for your support in the business. The brackets are 2-2.5 weeks out at this point and I'm hoping if I get the brace over to the vendor tomorrow they can keep the same schedule on those as well. I should have pricing on the brace this week, and I will make that announcement as soon possible along with a convenient way for payment.
