STI strut tower bar (with spacer) installed with Harrop SC pics

I don't remember seeing any pics of this product installed with a Harrop SC , and most of the info that is posted seems to be scattered amongst the dozen?hundred?gazillion? posts on the subject.

One important bit of info that is absent from the majority of the post is that a spacer is required to obtain the clearance between the top of the SC and this strut bar. Thank you to whomever previously mentioned this fact(?-is there another way). I experimented a little, and eventually decided it was easier to buy spacers already on the market, and modify to fit. All the ones I found were marketed toward rallycross to raise the vehicle. Plenty of companies making/selling different versions. I originally intended to use this ABS version as a template for modifying a similar aluminum spacer, but so far it seems to be holding up.

These spacers are intended to be installed under the strut towers, so when installed above the strut towers, material must be removed to clearance the strut tower braces and protruding body panels to which the braces attach. OEM brace pictured below to show that they are "in the way", as are the Raceseng braces I have installed. (and if your going to freehand with a Dremel, expect it to be ugly)

This version of spacers came with mounting hardware which seems to fit with OEM shock mounts. If you have Raceseng CasCam plates, then you gotta get longer bolts. I bought 35mm long replacements which give plenty of thread protrusion (can't have the nutplates falling off/lost as I make adjustments 5 minutes before hot laps begin...thats how I roll).

Why not the Edelbrock one? I used a file to easily sand off the Edelbrock logo, so it didn't mess with the OCD.

Decided to push the limits of the stock block and see how long it lasts. Switched from the 85mm to 75mm pulley and had Neal @theracersline and Zach @Counterspacegarage dial it in on E85. Pretty impressed with the results

Nice! What injectors are you using, what was your peak boost, and what exhaust mods do you have?

Waiting on my Harrop kit to arrive along with Jackson DROC, fuel pump, injectors, and new clutch. Currently on e85, waiting is the hardest part!

More than the max, I'm impressed with that curve. Almost perfect, linear power delivery. No dips or spikes, just constant pull. Must be a blast on the street.

Power is addicting. The 75mm pulley looks appealing, but then again, so does the 70mm pulley, or even better yet, the 65mm pulley. I find myself thinking of how far I could press my luck too.

Yea it is, I havenít even had a chance to drive it yet since the switch. Have to wait until I can get it out to the track. Hope it lasts a track day. If not will be figuring out what kind of swap/build Iíll be starting.
