Got my Massive front strut bar on finally. Its a way even tighter fit on my 5 than it was on the Kona. Had to jack the car up in the center cuz one hole was about 3/16" off. Also had to unbolt the dpfe from the firewall cuz the clip going into the dpfe was completely in the way. Unusual since I didn't have to do that on the Kona. Rebolted it back to the firewall using a mounting point that's for something else but can only use 1 bolt hole. Should be fine. Of course when I do the SVT header conversion all the dpfe/egr stuff should be able to come out of the car. Also need to trim a small bottom corner of the plug going into the brake fluid rereservoir since it will slightly rub the bar.

noob question.. but this is part of the shifter itself and not on the tranny side of things right?
does it go in the white/yellow bracket looking thing?

UPDATE: So I installed my Massive front strut bar on Tuesday. So far it seems to have really tightened up the front end. Had a lot of squeaking and creaking when driving over the rough and very uneven roads to my house that as of now are gone. Will monitor over the next week or so to see if they stay gone or come back even if only a little. Also notice a little more "firmness" when pushing hard through corners and sweeping turns. Didn't notice near as much improvement on the Kona with this bar as I am seeing on the zx5.

Need to get my Massive rear strut bar put on Thursday and hopefully my Eibach rear sway. Those should help to further tighten things up. Then after that my Eibach front and finally my new springs/struts and shocks. Then to save up again for the adj camber and toe arms from Massive :)

Anyone know of any places to get some good new tires for the SVT for cheap?

Besides new you could always check used tire shops.
