The Megan Racing badge is not centered on the engine cover...I could never again open my hood. OCD sucks.

Yeah I suffer from a little of that and once you see the benefits you will get over that very quickly. It’s the best mod I’ve done for suspension hands down.

That was exactly my first thought.

Did the Magen strut tower brace require a lot of work to install, like the wiring bundles having to be cut? Can you retain your engine cover and still take it on and off w/o unbolting the bar?
I had a STB on my Miada and it made a BIG difference. I was hoping a good easy install STB was out there. It would compliment my sway bar.

So from what the mechanic told me the ac line and the ecu harness need to be loosened so that the strut tower can fit properly. (Moved approx. 2 cm) Then you secure them down after the brace is mounted. The engine cover can not come off after you do the brace and you will need to unbolt the brace to take the engine cover off.

Got it!. I figured leave it off or take one side bolt off, loosen the other and swing it up, or remove but naturally leave the brackets snugly secured.
