I may take it apart this weekend, probably so simple, it's staring me right in the face.

Beautiful car BTW. Do you still own it? It doesn't show up in your signature!

Nice install. Thanks for sharing that. Your engine bay looks sweet/clean. I was curious if you found that your strut brace made a considerable difference in handling in your everyday driving or is that for racing autocross or what?
thanks
