I don't. My car is asleep for the winter in the garage. My install looks exactly like the pics that Kozmic has, nothing different. I'm very satisfied with the product, don't get me wrong. But still has a slight gas smell.

From my research into surge tanks, it seems that anytime you run fuel lines into the cabin of the vehicle that you should expect a gas smell.

Also be aware that morricus doesn't have a back seat and his trunk area is wide open into the cabin. If you have the back seat it'd probably help.

here in Houston, Kozmic crew warned me something changed about our local pump gas and the fuel smell is MUCH worse these days (experienced first hand on a customer's car). for our pump gas, I was told the fumes were very very potent. some change they made to the additives I believe. E85 is still fine though

but I still opted to upgrade to PTFE lines to avoid the fuel smell. Even though I'll probably stay on E85, I didn't want to cheap out and potentially regret it - PTFE is expensive

just things to keep in mind for surge tank people

I was at the track years ago with a Evo that tripped and literally came down first on the right rear C pillar area, the right side of the bolt in roll bar (TCdesigns, same one I had in my 8 below) took pretty much all of the force (after the roof) and it did not punch through the floor. However, the floor was a good inch or so dented from the impact.

Thanks for the experienced reply. Sorry you went through that, but glad to know it was better for it to be there then not.

I ended up having to cut that plastic air guide under the floorboard to clear one of the bolts.

Doubt it really matters though. As everyone said, it was obviously a very solid mount and I trust it.

I also used the stock hardware and it was perfect length for if you cut through the carpet and mount it to the floorboard directly. Was able to tighten down both nuts with ~1/8th inch of excess bolt sticking out.

I've never done the "drive-by" post where you put up a picture and then run away and hide. I believe that you're not suppose to babble (as I'm doing right now), but, as I said, I haven't done this before.

Note to self: you suck at the internets. Never try to be cool with a picture or attempt at a meme. You're too frickin' old. Your VCR says that it's 12:00 ... 12:00 ... 12:00. You have a VCR in the first place. Don't ever try this again.
