I'm not sure what to say, since I'm using our prototypes right now, and they definitely fit.

Our prototype M8 EFR stud kit (production except for stud length) is pictured below. I trimmed two of the clips for aesthetics, but the top rear clip is untrimmed and fits perfectly.

Hey Sav just bought the studs, question on the manifold; you mention it's two parts, is there a slip joint on there somewhere or could you expand on this point? I have an exhaust with a slip union so it'll have to be modified for a flange and my butterfly brace hugs close to the cat, I think I'll be fine if the flange is before the butterfly brace begins. Would it look similar to this?

The manifold is one part, the downpipe will be two. It will be a single slip joint towards the front of the transmission. It won't be anywhere near your butterfly brace.

Good catch, typed that out while talking to someone. That's exactly what I wanted to hear, Thanks!

That's nice. What's their plan for a transmission that'll hold together for more than a single pull to redline?

Don't mind me - I'm just bitter because 350 rwhp breaks my Quaife gearset (repeatedly) at the track.

Yay to 7163, but not the thread bump I was looking for.

I had a mod delete a bunch of off-topic stuff (thanks, anonymous mod). Josh, shoot me an email re: oil drain location on Richard's pan.

If you do not have one of my kits, PLEASE do not discuss what "might" work with my components. Even if you think there are similarities between my production kit and your DIY system, and even if there are similarities, you run the risk of causing severe confusion for a potential customer who misinterprets your post as a confirmation of compatibility for something like an oil drain location, coolant lines, heat shields, etc. For the sake of those customers who might be confused (and to prevent tremendous user support headaches for myself in the future), I'll ask a mod to delete any post that does this in the future. Fair warning.

No update. They are in machine right now. Could be out by the end of the week, could be another 2-3 weeks. Impossible for me to say.

Thanks for the update. Just curious, no rush on my side.

In your testing are you using the internal CRV (BOV) or not and why?
