Threaded part needs to seat on base to reduce bending loads on threaded shaft; while I use the old offering from Lotus Motorsport it seated down at about a 15 deg rotation angle, I used washers to back it out while still giving a firm seating.

The GRP bolt lacks that OEM base flair needed to reduce lateral bends; just some dots of weld slag in the threads to block rotation.

Did Naples supply/install splitter and barge boards? Where were they sourced?
Yes, they installed them....I purchased them (plus back ordered V3 red tail lamps) from Greg's Race Parts

Going with installation of BOE Master Clutch Cylinder. Preventative maintenance as I have Front clam coming off anyways.

I love the GT rear end, wish I could get it overnight as I have a painting opportunity; oh well.

is the sound improved? (sounds great already, IMO)
is the seat of pants dyno feel any different?
Neutral Effects: seems little difference when the valve is closed
Pros: hard to describe but a more agressive howl at the higher RPMs with less droning.
Cons: a few scraped knuckles on install and it now screams "if you can hear me officer, I am going triple digits"

Just had my hethelsport front track rod, rear toe links, arb bushing and S sway bar installed yesterday.
first impression is steering felt a little heavier. But going have the car aligned next week though

Thanks to Ezekiel from CM Autohaus in Fremont for doing a fantastic work with the install.
very nice guy to work with and very knowledgeable.

Front track rods ... need to steam clean my suspension :)
rear toe link pics to follow...
