Cheers.

I havn't done much lately to it. Need to order another billet tuff mount and waiting to get access to a mate's cutting machine so I can do my door trim moisture barriers.

Havn't heard from the upholsterer either, he needs to fix my rear arm rest cover before I can get all the rear seats in.

I've heard if you run two solid mount's it can cause alot of vibration.

better than binding the steering!

I don't think its that bad at all, G's race car runs the same solid mounts and it was pretty smooth while running it on the dyno. My VR with balance shaft removed and not re-balanced with stock mounts vibrates a lot more than the race car did. So I know what to expect.

Vlad, what is the final layout of your exhaust now ?
Looks like cat & single muffler per bank in 2.5" , or is it 2.25" , then merged to 2.5" over diff with single 2.5" resonator ?

Cheers

i expect this thing to be at shows vlad. you putting normal or CH plates on it.
the amount of work would be borderline concourse although some of your modifications may upset (some) judges.
