Question Wevo sway bar mount installation ?

Posted this on the 911 forum but no response. Since its 930 specific, maybe I'll get more help here?

I was looking to install these when I put my set of TRG bars on but realized that the rear fuel pump is right "there" (above) with fuel lines, etc. running thru that area.

So it seems that at least the pump should be removed before welding? Is that the case?

Any other gotcha's before I get into it?

thanks.

yes- remove anything that has fuel in it close to the area that you are welding.

One trick is to mount the sway bar to the new mounts and then hold it up in place to mark where the mounts will go, this way you can make sure that the bar clears the transmission mount and such.

Thanks for confirming my fear / nightmare

There are a number of hard fuel lines just above the sway bar mounts, so it looks like I'd rather wait till mine breaks before attacking this problem then.

There are ways around the issue, fire wrap etc but it is always dangerous with fuel. do you have a local race/fabrication shop that you could consult?

Yeah - I will likely have my mechanic, who is used to preping race cars, weld it for me. And its him who pointed out that its a more PITA job on turbos because of the fuel pump. So I wanna ask if there's any other easier way around. But I guess not
