Just got the cusco front strut tower bar from charles at b2designs.
install wasn't too hard (took about 10minutes),
bar did look good without the plastic engine covers on
everything fit fine w/o any spacer modification or anything of that nature
Finally cut into the plastic engine covers, the bar fits flush, you'd mistake it for oem
overall, good buy.
you feel the bar only during, as lexus would say, "high-spirited driving"
but I am very pleased

Good job on the Cusco bar and cutting the holes on the side covers. It should be standard on all USBs.
As for the removal of the engine cover for the track, no need to take it off. The last two track events, I left it on without issue. Also, the engine bay looks much more pleasant when the hood is raised in between sessions.
Looks good bro! I cant wait to get mine installed, so what did you use to cut your covers?

Thanks guys, to cut the plastic I used a hacksaw (slowly and carefully) with the plastics secured.
I went little by little making repetitive trips to check if fitment was flush.
If I undercut it, I just went back to cut more.
But if I had overcut it, no going back to that!
Patience is key

But it's only an eBay cap.
