    Thanks to @Adamizme, I did the MZ5 rear caliper bracket swap and switched all of my rotors to slotted centrics. I also actually followed EBC's bedding procedure and the new yellows are much more quiet than the old ones. Initial brake bite is much more pronounced thanks to the slotted rotors.

    I also might be ordering all of this stuff and upgrading my methanol system to AN fittings and direct port.

    @Adamizme had a set laying around from his stock out. Not sure where he sourced them from. I think most folks hit a junkyard and salvage them off of a mz5.

    Late response is late, but I got them back in 2015 from Tasca Parts. I horribly over-paid - $171.57 shipped for just the brackets!

    Big thanks to @Mauro_Penguin for helping me get this nonsense installed. I cleaned up the installation by adding straight AN nozzle holders from Prometh and some Russell AN swivel angles. We also swapped out all lines for stainless with AN fittings.

    I also replaced the bolt holding the MAP sensor into the manifold... thing was... questionable. New larger bolt seems to hold things in better and fingers crossed my weirdo leak issue is gone.

    In all seriousness that one of the cleanest "normal" engine bays i have seen in a MS3.

    I feel like you need an extra wiring harness to just lay all over the place so that you can fit in.

    The rats nest of vacuum hoses is all underneath. I'm amazed I never have issues shifting.

    Now that you have Manly size Meth, remember that I have that spare block ready to sleeve for whenever you get bored.

    CS battery box is deceptively larger than expected. About an inch of room between the intake and a half inch between the strut tower so I can stuff hoses down. @Barett@CorkSport should look into making us a trunk relocated box kit. *cough cough*
