Three questions:

1) Doesn't your engine mount bracket need to be modified to account for the 1.1 inch push back?

2) How much engine tin rework needs to be done to maintain the sealing around the engine when it moves back?--Throttle linkage changes?

3) How much effect on the cars overall fore aft CG are you gaining by doing this? Its gotta be alot less than 1.1 inch.

I just wonder if its worth the trouble.....cant see why youre doing it with all the changes it impacts down the line.
