IM barely fit. BARELY. Gotta actually tilt the engine forward a bit, cuz its tapping the brake booster. How much for the mount? My mechanic was saying something bout strengthening the mounts too after he drove it for the 1st time. Is there anything we can do for the front and rear mounts?

thatll probably have to be my next mod after the new ECU. it was actually running on the F23 motor to get it started to check if it would run. God this is expensive.

You can also buy polyurethane silicone at Home Depot and fill in your mounts. That's what I did with my side mount.

It depends on the shape/design of the mount whether you can just fill it in or not.

Also Arber where did you get the poly inserts? Im debating whether to go with that or just get the innovative mounts. The Innovative mounts are kinda expensive though.

Also i highly recommend the Forbidden Motorsports short shifter. Has 3 different settings, mine is on the tightest one (race setting). Its amazing, flick of the wrist shifting lol. 1st to 2nd and 3rd to 4th are like flicking an automatic from D4 to D3 lol.

Update: So i was helping my mechanic work some things out at the shop, and we managed to go through 4 KNOCK SENSORS ! Damn things kept breaking when we were trying to put em on! I do love my engine bay though, its so beautiful . This is how the CL should have came stock! I was rollin' around Cali style with no hood on, just letting the engine show haha .

KUUUMMMAARRRR i need that damn power steering bracket! Its hard as hell to turn this big bitch from a dead stop! LOL. Well not hard, just annoying cuz im used to doing it with a flick of the wrist, and now i gotta do work .
