on the side of the pass strut tower there's i think 2 bolts that are just holding brackets up for the o2/egt sensors and some other stuff, just use that and mount it sideways, it's still very audible even facing sideways. The whole thing is actually 2 pieces, the horn and then the bracket to attach to the strut tower bolts so you can take that off.

nope, didn't have to lengthen any wires. there should be at least 2 bolts that you can mount it to, just unbolt it and move it around to see which ones it will reach to.

the ac line i just moved the bracket down 1 screw hole and put a little bit of weatherstripping between the line and IC just in case to absorb vibrations better. i've got an sti replica thoguh, i think the cusco's have additional mounting hardware.

The Cusco bar leaves less room for the a/c hard lines because it's closer to the firewall. How did you guys with Cusco bar move the a/c hard lines. Did you try to BEND the lines ? They look very fragile/brittle and I don't think they would survive bending, but then I also don't think they will survive rubbing against the bar.

Maybe I'll try the weatherstripping solution.

I relocted the support down one screw (left the top screw off and slightly bent the AC piping downward. It touches the Cusco bar, not really happy with this but it works for now. I was thinking about getting a pipe bender to gently bend the AC pipe a litttle more, only need about another 1/4".
