Bmr cb005 only locates the front 2 subframe mounting points. Using the steeda sleeves on the rear 2 mounting points won’t hurt if you already have them purchased.

don't need to because, the frame can no longer pivot once the cb005 is installed you don't need to square up the rear any more its forced that way by the front.

Not quite today but on the way back from a nice few days in Wales, I got back to near where I live and a bus decided turn into me on a corner that I left a full car length in front for turning room. There's some minor cosmetic damage. Spoke to my insurance who have arranged for accident management team to deal with but can't get the car into a Ford approved bodyshop untill 1st Sept. :facepalm:

you don't need the steeda centering sleeves as the cb005 kit already has them welded onto the kit its self, dont do the diff inserts if you're doing cb005 i did (as did gibbo back when he had one) we both pulled them off as they provide no benefit once the cb005 is fitted.
Thanks. Didn't fit the diff bushings as I wanted to see how it felt with the cb005 kit. Keep reading comments on how hard the kit is to fit, my mechanic had no issue fitting it at all, he didnt have to move the IRS so either I got lucky the cradle was already centre or he approached the job differently. Wondered whether to get the allignment checked now too.

yeah fitting all of it isn't difficult less than an hour to do the full lot on my drive but certainly do get a full 4 wheel alignment check. Should really do that any time you fiddle with stuff that could potentially alter it.

Sorry you had your car damaged... Good news though - Bus Co's are self insuring. That is they do not have insurace in the conventional sense like we do. They are uninsured but have the funds to pay out for any and all accidents. That means that any claim againt one will not have to be declaired on your insurace. You will probably find they accept full liability and will cover all your costs. One of my cars was damaged by a school bus. I did not want to make a claim as my car was a cheap banger and would have been written off. Car was only worth £500 and repairs costs were over £2K. They arranged all repairs to above satisfactory standards. Hope you get the same treatment.

Great service from the GT101 team. Very helpful and knowledgeable, and the new cooler block appears to be very well made so good work Guy at Nemesis.

Fairly sure the Nemesis kit was not designed in house, but is done by another usual name in the modify your Mustang field.

It's the only kit I know of that has the oil take off from the existing place (using a new bock) instead of fitting a sandwich plate behind the oil filter which is not the best solution on RHD cars.

Nemesis just market and stick their label on, i believe.

We looked at every oil kit on the market for the Mustang and what was being made avaiable for the RHD market. With the design and manufacturing we have been working with a UK company that knows their stuff, as oil coolers are their specialty. All manufacturing / machining of the takeoff plates is done here in the UK.

We originally started out with a two port take off plate right off the block and was going to have a remote oil filter location. However, the factory RHD cast aluminium piece that runs from the block behind the steering rack to the factory water cooler matrix. This cast piece is also used as part of the engine mounting. So, to have a take off plate, engine mount spacers, remote thermostatic filter housing with x4 ports requiring twice the amount of fittings was going to work out quite expensive. We were then looking at the conventional RHD kits with a sandwich take off plate. I wasn't happy with this design. So, working on this we came up with the idea of a thermostatic take off plate from the original RHD oil cooler location eliminating less areas for failure and keeping costs down requiring less components. This was before we were made aware of a similar Australian equivalent design costing £700+ Before Shipping, Import Duty & VAT.

This has then been tested for some time before fully being released to known Mustang garages that we work closely with to be able to professionally fit and assemble the kit. It may not be the cheapest on the market and we don't make a fat lot on it as all the components are very high quality being Aeroquip lines & Setrab Cooler Core. We haven't looked to make it the cheapest on the market but hopefully the best.

The main purpose of this kit was as a high performance product and is also an added bonus should you be worried about factory oil cooler failure completely eliminating the possibility of water entering into the oil system and a much less greater risk of oil blowing out externally.

That's what I look for, in a supplier/vendor.
I'll add I've always experienced good customer service from Nemesis too!
:like:
After driving it back home today in the heat at good speed, I can confirm the cooler works as it should. Stable oil temps and slightly cooler cylinder head temps. Job done, I can now use the car as god intended without the constant fear of terminal cooler failure out of warranty.
