No... you dont need to key the tower , there might be 3 Foci guys here that have done it , I have never seen this part brake , trans guys like to get that 175.00 for what ?

Did a bunch of work on the car today.
Found out I need a bunch of diff sized bolts to move things around, gotta make 2 brackets, need some spacers, extend the wiring harness pigtail for the MAF, etc. Bah lol.
Need -10 and -16 an hose ends in various sizes to clear things, which I don't have them in. FML

ANYWAYS, on to the good stuff:

yeaaa, it's taken a lot of time and money!

So I found out I need these to finish:

2x 90* -16an hose ends.
4x 90* -10an hose ends.
2x 45* -10an hose ends.
2x - 10an straight hose ends.
5x intake manifold bolts.
Make 2 brackets for bigger oil cooler.
3x t-stat housing hex head bolts.
Re-route oil feed line.
2x MassiveSpeed valve cover aluminum spacers (lost).
2x valve cover bolts, 30mm, socket head.
Rear t-stat hose adapter to -6an.
T-stat overfill hose adapter to -6an.
2x banjo fittings for turbo coolant lines (ordered size too small).
4x bolts + nuts for hood lock and mount to lower rad support.
Extend MAF harness 8-12".
3x spacers for coil pack bracket 1/2" to clear new oil feed location.

Lots of shit, but mostly petty small things that I can get within the week no problem!

I'm waiting on my Topspeed mani gt3076r and Topspeed Dp
New trans with kazz LSD and quaife gears ;)
And then tune
