    Hotchkis strut tower install

    I dunno if I got a bad unit but this was a pain the buns...did not match up properly after triple checking the instructions and the braces were too small for the bar! Got it in but man was it a pain! Also some of you may recall losing the air controls after my fast 92 install and I was able to trace the line and hook it up fixed that issue...now onward to the tune at the end of the month!

    What was the issue? Bolt holes not wide enough or something else?

    Bolt holes weren't wide enough which caused it to not line up properly...I got it in but it was a bitch.

    Ahh....It's one of the nice things I like about the UMI one I had. No issues, except it doesn't fit anymore with a FAST102 intake.
