It was to show where the bolts were... the EJ engines are basically the same. If you need them pointed out in the picture, let me know.

I'm not really sure the grounding mod makes enough of a difference to need to be proved on a dyno, but I could be off. Pretty sure its main effect is making revs and overall driving smoother, more consistent with better throttle response.

well better throttle response and smooter revs means more efficient breathing and it should show up on dyno.
