I didn't weight it before I put it on, but it certainly wasn't difficult maneuvering it into place.  :D

Any issue with it interfering with the relocated sway bar? Been thinking about this piece for awhile.

That a nice piece, it should help a lot.

I had to cut the radius back about 1/4 to 3/8" on the side panels to clear the sway bar mounts. It's pretty self explanatory once you have the pieces in front of you. It was quite easy to do. I had whole thing installed in about 30 minutes.

I have thought of this too, but afraid my radiator mount is too low for it to fit.....

Make a straight line from the bumper cover flange to the subframe undertray mount points. As long as it's above that line, it should fit. My radiator is a 15.5" tall core.

All the LRBs stuff I have seen is pretty good. I have their undertray, and may get their hood vents. I have been running the OE plastic undertray since I finished my swap, and it has big gaps on the sides from my oil cooler mounts and relocated sway bar. I think my radiator might be slightly low, but I will window the tray if needed and rivet on an extended panel to clear the radiator.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year, everyone!

Here are some autocross pictures from a few months ago. I wish I can say I'm good at it, but it's certainly a ton of fun!
