VonKrause SUCCESS!!! In the battle of stress bar vs. Man, man just won!

A pro tip btw is two jack stands would be better and take all three nuts off the tower and then brute force is your friend. Honestly though it was tough to get that SOB on the car. But now that it's on... WOOOOOOOO! Feel the difference and I like it. ^_^

StaX we tried but were thinking with the rapid change in teperature the bar just shrunk a tad and couldnt get it to fit it was off by like a 1/4"

mdgonzo101 I had to jack up my car on one side to get the stress bar on for the first time. Now, after all this time it goes on as easily as it came off.

sleepyboy Glad to hear that something got done lol. Don't worry about the stress bar. Sometimes you have to jack up the car on one side to get it to fit.

ch84 spi good to somebody showed up i had to help pick up my dads mustang at redline in spring and was leaving thinking i have no $ for gas and running low keep wondering if i should go as im driving southbound 45 then the rain came and that stop me i said well im going home, but im glad it worked out.

VonKrause well that was fun, it was an extreme install!

Big shout out to staX and Zab for making it out during the horrible weather.

So after getting the old intake out we had to stop since the rain started and then PUSH the car to the other side of the lot and place it under a car port to keep working while it was raining. But it's ON now, woot! Thanks again Roel for helping out with the install on that. Now the stress bar didn't actually go on.Either the bar is too long or the car twisted weird. Regardless the bar is another day, I am scared that I might have to drill out a little of the hole to get it to fit.

Anyway was driving around to TRY and get to the charity thing but it was outside (Didn't know that) and it got flooded out.

Anyway it was fun and very wet. Thanks again guys. ^_^
