More or less yes.
Pivot pins are different as well, Top deck has that extra narrow section that can take a post up from the motor mount.

T4'13 front wishbones will require an extra 2mm shim at the rear of them to fit the mounts.

Yes and the topdeck is slightly different too. But for me it's cheaper to sell my T4 2013 and buy a new T4 2014 than upgrade my old car.

Anyone want to sell their '14?

Process now takes less than 10 seconds!

Simple but very effective= OPTIMIZED!
Super tip, kudos for sharing!

Better than grease too imo.

I will see how I get on with both ideas but the longer screws is definitely sounding like the better long term optimized option!

Yes, durring practice(when grip was low) and it was awsome, but as grip came up durring the day I was in trouble. went to 2.7 in the front with 450w oil, rear 400w, moved the shocks in 1 hole all round. and it was a lot better, not 100% but defo a lot quicker in the corners than the 2013 with out a doubt

well i managed to get mine on track,albeit a very dirty track as it hasnt been used for 2 weeks,got the leaf blower out and gave it a once over ran 2 packs on old tyres and then went for the full monty with new tyres ,corner speed is up over the 13 but i felt it pushed more on entry,mid and exit is better,with 2.7's allround 400f and 450 rear the rear was loose,but only just,a better driver probably would have loved it but i like the rear to be planted,it was running kit settings apart from the diff oil and shocks/oil/springs and im using the 1.3 front anti roll bar,i put a .5 shim under the fr and removed the layshaft screws and although better initial the rear still wasnt to my liking,with so much steering maybe now i can go back to 3.5 rear toe,hopefully with a better condition track it will be better still,i was mostly gearing a new motor so didnt mess to much with it,this weekend will hopefully prove that it is faster than the 13,it definately carried more corner speed as i was able to get on the power 4/5 ft earlier than i was with the 13,i will be going back to my colder weather set ups,at a guess ill be running 400 f and 350 r seems like it wants to roll more to get the grip,but as everyone wanted more steering i can say it has more

Does the '14 have any of the stuff designed to keep the bumper from ripping through the chassis? Like the front brace or a taller bumper or whatever?

No,
Bumper brace is still optional!

Hmm, cool, thanks. I'll just go with the tall standoffs and hard bumper from the T3 days.
