If and when you start offering a radiator setup, I have the CAD setup I used to make mine if you're interested in using it as a starting point.

We'd still be glad to talk to you as you do the swap.  Free shipping offers have all been taken.  We wanted to celebrate the launch but we have too much time invested in these to do it for everyone unfortunately.

well poop, $70 on shipping is a bit more than I wanted to spend :(
the builders subframe says mounts are unwelded, but it does come with them to be welded on by me right?

Can you update us with it? I'm waiting for someone to do it before I purchase it myself since I don't live in the states and It will be a hassle if it doesn't work.

Just following up.  If anyone has feedback or suggestions for us based on your kit, please drop a line to roninspeedworks@gmail.com.  We're getting set to cut the next batch.  Oh, and a bit delayed, but I've been working on install instructions for both the overall and steering kits so we'll have those available shortly.

yes actually, the sack of bolts that came with it. would be great if there was a pic reference sheet/bolt location guide for where they all go (figured some of them out, wasnt sure if should remove FD subframe studs so didnt). other than that it was pretty straight forward and the caster/camber channels were great!

also, would you happen to have or be developing a "builders" trans crossmember like the subframes you sell? basically a bare bar that comes down from the highest FD mounting point, 90' degree then across to the other mounting points, just without the t56 mounting points? am very interested in this as I'm sure others are as well.

The two mounting points in the tunnel are for a cross brace and only spot welded in. Some have used them in the past. They usually tear out.
