Keeps the stock passenger seat in at the track? 4 bolts, two minutes and lose the weight! Nice to have a car rag appreciate how fun and capable our girly cars are. Gotta find me a Hello Kitty oil cap now.

Nah, I think he was referring to the missing one of the fabled "turbo to mani" studs that everyone has been bitching about. First one to go, too. Top front.

So, is it a decision, or still in the decision-making phase?

So, if you never install that stud, it can't come loose. Is that better than putting it there in the first place and bitching about it coming loose?
