    low lol but same not its still prob same or higher than it is in a slammed EF civic , obviously I have to be careful driving the car as anything else and its not like im daily driving it . We are going to make a skid plate that comes off the front lower crossmember before its all said and done

    there was a trade off, do I want the engine high as can be and have a terrible fooked up angle on both the cv shafts or get it close to the firewall as possible and straightest shot for the axles to be straight. I can compensate clearence with putting a real wheel/tire under the car and im going to put coilover sleeves on those kyb's to raise the front up a bit

    better to have the geometry right, like you said you can always fix wheels and height later.
