You can see on this picture that you can't swing a wrench around the adjustment nut because it's recessed into the housing on that end.
You can put a wrench to it but you can't turn it lose.

Thanks for the pic.

I ordered everything on Thursday and I just received everything today. Frick'n awesome! I thought about putting the CAI on, but I should/will wait for the tuner. I'm pumped and can't wait to start bolting this stuff on. I will take by phase pics.

Edit: CAI on back order.

Steeda Sport Springs & F/R Swaybar Pak
Steeda Heavy-Duty Upper Strut Mounts

Now I have to find a place with a good rep to do the suspension. I'm not bad with tools. I built my race bike from the ground up, minus the blue printing of the motor. The intake, to easy, but I'm not sure if I want to try the suspension. Thoughts on that anyone?
I went with Steeda Sports, Koni STR.Ts, Steeda upper mounts, and a BMR Panhard. The panhard was the easiest to install IMO and it centered the rear nicely. Those Steeda upper mounts are first rate stuff. However, I had to order GT500 mounts as well just to use the rubber spring seat from them to add to the steeda mounts. That was because of the koni dampers that were originally made for 2010s. I'm not familiar with the steeda dampers so maybe it's completely different.

That car is going to look even more bad *** with all those toys. Can't wait to see it.
