I'm curious, why not use bends for the center 2?

That's a bottom mount.

Are you planning to ditch p/s and a/c?

Will try to get MS2, wideband, COP's, and injectors installed before a track event on January 19th. Currently waiting on Toyota coil connectors & bluetooth RS232 adapter. New CarPC monitor is also finally here and I will try getting that in the car in the next few weeks.

Went to Streets of Willow Springs yesterday. Car performed well although I had a slight hick-up with my tire setup. A local tire shop that installed NT01's fucked up big time and damaged a tire during installation. The only last minute solution was to run NT01's up front and RS3's in the rear. First session was dedicated to breaking in RS3's (sliding all over the place). I started getting up to speed in the beginning of second session but one of the NT01's went flat so we've moved RS3's up front and I ran my street tires in the rear (Falken 912's). Best time I've managed to get was 1:36.075 :(

Mandatory picture of car and crew:
