Default Cusco rear sub-frame brace/diffuser w/after market sway bar

I curious to see if any one has used the cusco diffuser kit with an upgraded sway bar and if so are there any fitment issues. Their site says that it will not work with upgraded swaybars that do not utilize the stock mounts. I have a cusco swaybar so I am good on that end but I don't want to go to install the diffuser kit and find out that it won't work. Any insight would be appreciate I know that the diffuser can be mounted without the brace but I would like to avoid doing more than just bolt it ie drilling/welding on brackets

I'm about to install mine next sat with a whiteline rsb, I was told that as long as you aren't running a huge rsb or one that requires upgraded mounts then you should be fine.

I'm running the diffuser kit and really like the whole package. Cusco is refering to after market sway bar mounts when they referance fitness issues. I run MRT sway bars and endlinks. I had Whiteline sway bar mounts initially but had to replace them in order to install the Cusco brace, diffuser mount. I went with 04 and up WRX factory mounts which are beefed up considerably as compared to the 02/03 mounts. Everything fit very well. I did have to trim the diffuser in order to clear my HKS Carbon Ti exhaust. No problem, barely noticable.

Why won't it fit with the Perrin sway bar mounts?
