Looks to be too far back IMO . . . Mine is mounted in place but I have not done the top bracing yet but will definitely not be able to use the GTP top mounts. I have the kit to make some custom ones. I am getting ideas for where to mount my ICM though and it looks like the AC is plumbed??? Does the AC actually work? I am planning doing that as well and just using custom hoses. If you dig out my build thread I think the hose are linked in there.


Whats up people?

i don't think its too far back cause his ICM isn't up front if it was to far back it would definatly fit as mine fits up there

So I've taken a closer look with my dad and we came to the conclusion that the axle is probably bent, I'm getting it changed within a week or 2 and hopefully it fixes the problem!

you're right, it didn't bend I was misslead lol sorry for being a noob

Anyway's I had it checked out and its actually hitting because the motor moves to much when I start it and when I go full throttle! So I juste have to figure out a way to stop if from moving back and I should be good to go, My guess is when the problems started I had major wheel hop and there was a big BANG so maybe I snapped a mount or something, I'm going to pick the car up later today and take a look.
