Ok. I've tried search but to no avail. I need to know if a strut tower bar for the NA exists. I mean, one that is specifically made for the NA without the use of a single washer or modifying. There has to be... right? I feel that washers damn near defeat the purpose and I refuse to use them

I dont think that they advertise an for specifically NA supras but i beleive that there is a cusco bar that will clear the intake manifold without any modification such as washers.

send me a pm if you're interested in the TRD one. I am going NA-T within the month and the ic pipes may prevent me from using the strut bar.

btw - i used plates to raise mine up; not washers.

i think the TRD bar is sick looking...after you raised it did you have any rubbing issues with the hood?

no rubbing issues because i dremeled it as well. it does look nice and you can feel the difference.

i bought 3 plates from home depot to put on each side and it clears everything on both sides and the middle after dremeling.

i'll try and take pics sometime this week. i hate to lose it cuz of the ic pipes because it looks great, but oh well.

I'll snap some pics tonight which will probably show you better than I can explain. I'll be taking it off to sell anyway, so I'll post those up asap.

Pretty much you dremel the top of the bar on the under-side, in the center.

arrows pointing to dremeled area...
