One other thing I found dead...the K Factory upper deck brace is bent!!! I can reshape...but I will probably not! Does anyone use the 'U' shape brace which goes between the upper deck and gearbox on the engine exhaust side? Does this have a tensioner on because the K Factory upper deck does not have a place to mount original belt tensioner??

Ahh....good...good.... I figured, next time I bend my chassis it will be cheaper just to replace the 'U' brace rather than the whole upper deck support and brace!!

i never like the k factory brace as this will make car maintenance difficult.

ernestf: the one that has the u shape should be 5 stars.

Actually it wasn't too bad because with the kawa brace on the other side it is possible just to remove the kawa bridging piece to put the engine out.
