Cradle installed. Bit of a pain. I really had to work it to get all the bolts in, but in the end everything lined up. Only thing I really had to do was take the corner off the downpipe bracket.

Yes, I know the OEM cradle is put together wrong. Just slapped it back together after I got it out.

Turns out it was 11 lbs. I'm rounding up because some parts fell off at the track. Just about 5# weight savings. Here's to more with the rear subframe and front cross member.

Where the DP hanger had to be cut

Only real gripe, the rear mounting plates are a bit too big for the GR chassis. They obviously bent to shape when I torqued it, but a bit smaller plate would be ideal for the GR (this is technically made for pre 08's).

And how I'm running the wiring for my gauges. Just need to add some sleeving and zip tie it nice and neat along the cowl.

Down inside the fender. This will all be covered up once the liner goes back in.

And inside. Pops out right behind the fuse panel. I have some add-a-circuit deals to tap into the box. With everything I've pulled out of the car I have no shortage of fuses to tap.
