This is JUST a MOCK up. We needed to have the car movable to take to a show so this locator mount was just tacked on so the car can steer. There will be a stronger more elegant solution once the engine comes back out.

The coilovers are turned all the way down here and there is about 3-3.5″ here. Yes it is close but the air boxes are about a 1/4″ from the hood.

Also it is looking VERY good that we will be using the stock DME. nando has been working on cracking it and it’s looking like it’s gonna happen.
