All this fabrication will add up quick, especially when doing them in small quantities. You will lose DoD, but I am the only one trying to keep it with a manual anyway. And then there's the issue of torque. The only reason Fieros are gettin away with them is they weigh like 1500lbs.
Since the enormous rear glass was fixed not an opening hatch , it forced adoption of a dramatically shortened trunk opening. That just doesn't make a ton of sense.
