    I think he's talking about about the x-brace that verts have under the tranny. If so, you won't be able to run it. You'll have to get rid of it and just run the other small one that goes across.

    i did mine on a hoist and it wasnt too bad...driver side was easy from the bottom just jack up the motor a couple inches...but the passenger side was a bitch i had to put it in from the top but it was very difficult because the starter didnt allow enough clearance between the tranny and body to slide it through. i had to remove the tb and a few other things and jack up the motor to get the right angle. and that egr tube was a pita too i had to bend the shit out of it but it worked out...


    :thumb: great setup with the prochamber

    With a vert you kindof need it. The lost rigidity from the lack of a top is made up for with that brace.

    Problem can easily be solved with some subframe connectors. O0

    Nice subframe's and Exhaust





    I personally would do it myself but thats me. I don't let anyone touch my cars......Thats what you get when your a mechanic for a living you see the way people do shotty work and when you have to fix it you will only touch your car. So unless you know someone and trust them get a friend and the 2 of you do it one weekend of afternoon.
