Ordered and installed the MM Strut tower brace. Man it was too easy! Unlike some of what I read on the net. It about fell right in!

2 Mounts to the pinch welds on the firewall.

6 holes drilled in the shock tower.

Thats about it!

That reminds me...I need to install the strut tower brace I had in the blue car in the red car soon. By the way, you can't put in a distributor with the MM strut tower brace in place.

I was ver suprised it fit so well. My guess is if your car is straight, it will drop in. Cars that have been tapped might require a little extra effort.

The best thing about the MM piece is that it uses the existing holes on the pinch weld, which means that you don't have to drill any holes in the firewall, and it bolts to the strongest part.

one thing i noticed is it may have issues with my QA1 caster camber plates. Not sure if it will clear them and still have room to adjust.

Are the QA1s similar to MM? If they are, no problem on my car.

That looks great!! Every MM part I've ever bought was top notch. They cost a little more than the others, but well worth it.
