Do your brackets have a long tab with holes in it? I bent that at about 80 and used the top screw from the headlight to hold them in....

here's some pics:

im not sure, I didnt do any research before i put them in... I just looked at the bay and it seemed to be the most logical place. I have seen them strapped to the different engine componets, but it would have gotten quite a bit hotter as most places were close to the exhaust manifold

I got mine on this forum from 00PreludeRacer... which I STRONGLY suggest NOT doing. He wouldn't reply to dozens emails or PM's and after 3 weeks of nothing I filed a paypal claim. Within 4 hours he was making all kinds of lame ass excuses for not having them shipped yet "there must have been a mis communication between me and my distributor" That was a load of BS... why wouldnt he reply to anything untill i lay the law on him?

Plus, they didnt come with a box or anthing.

But, I know Si Speed and maybe someone else are selling them too...

he sold a pair to me fine with no problems in the box and always answered to my pms. He even offered me a DIY tutorial on how it connects and how it works. But that day I had my cousin over which he knew how to do it. I dont know but to me he was a good salesman, maybe you just got off on the wrong foot.

could have been... mine came in a priority mail box...no manufacturer names...nothing. It's weird our results come out so different...

Getting off on the wrong foot to me is a missed PM or two... but 5 or more is somewhat uncalled for... but in the end, after a paypal dispute, I did receive my kit which works fine so far.
