6) Remove the passenger side shock tower plate by unfastening the three 14mm nuts, and lifting it off of
the studs. Figure 6.
7) Move the ecu attached to the driver’s side shock tower plate. There are three 10mm bolts in total. Two
bolts are located on top connecting the ecu bracket to the shock tower plate, and the third is located at
the bottom of the ecu. The bottom bolt needs a 10 inch extension and universal joint to unfasten. Gently
move the ecu off the studs of the shock tower plate and place a rag between the ecu bracket and the
shock tower to protect the paint. Do not disconnect the ecu from the wiring harness. Figure 7.

9) Clean the shock tower surfaces where the new brace will be mounted. Any debris left over may damage the paint.
10) Place the new shock tower brace onto the same eight mounting studs as the factory shock tower brace. Figure 10.
11) Using the nuts that were removed earlier, secure the new brace. Torque the six shock tower nuts to 37-43
ft-lbs, and the two firewall nuts to 12-19 ft-lbs.
12) Bolt the EVP control unit on the passenger side of the vehicle to the shock brace using the two included
M6x35 bolts, washers, and nuts.
13) Remove the D shaped clip from its line and bushing located near the EVP control unit. Flip it upside down
and reinstall it to fit the hole in the bracket attached to the control unit. The rubber bushing underneath
will need to be moved up. When everything is in place, install the clip into the bracket. Figure 13.
