Kyle,

I have been told a month or two for the last year, I would really be interested if it was true.

Wow, indeed... that was hard to imagine. I thought it was because the V6 have lower hoods lol.

Alright, I'll keep my eyes peeled for this =D.

Thanks for the info,but i'm talking about after it is already in.Meaning,if I have to work on the motor (after it has been installed) do I need to raise the car,drop the strut mount ,remove the STB,just to be able to work on the motor?.

I guess if you mean pull the motor then yes but you can actually remove the intake manifold and heads with the brace in place because it hugs the cowl so closely.

Yep, I checked the website a couple weeks ago, and it was indeed $199, but now that I have the money, it is $269!!! Darn it!!! I wonder if it was just a mistake or if they were on sale or something!! I missed the good price!!!
