The firewall is 7-8 layers thick in that area.. I wouldnt sandwhich 2 plates there. you dont have much room under the dash, if you still have the HVAC unit.. I used 1/8'' plate, and welded it from right above the steering rack and took it pretty far up the firewall.

If you can make some plate fit Behind the steering rack. Do that as well. Thats a VERY strong point. and just tie it into the firewall plates.

I am coming back from the mk1 and mk2 vw world, where the shaved bay is taken to extremes. Thety run all new brake lines and the engine wiring harness/headlight harness through the fenderwell or frame. If you are still going to run the MAF translator then I would suggest having the two sides of it tigged to some piping rather than using couplers. also consider running it further from the throttle body. maybe in the corner of the bay or over where a SMIC would go. I could go on but I would start to rant. needless to say if I wasn't putting it together as a daily driver then I would try a shaved bay as well. I am glad to come back to my original love of CSMs, and I am going to bring some dub-style with me.

replied so I could subscribe :supz:

well right where I have my mount it isn't anywhere near that thick. And I might not be sandwiching two plates but there will be at least one long thick plate on the interior side which should be more than enough for that mount. And There is plently of room for the plate between the firewall and heatercore box.



So is anyone else running an auto passenger side axle it fits perfect?

Must be nice to have a forklift around the shop, sure saves the back. Those wheels even look pretty good on there to me.

yes the forklift was really nice especially working alone like my back doesnt even hurt anymore! And yeah I was suprised with the wheels to they aren't to bad but will be traded out for steelies with drag radials/slicks!!
