ya, or slightly behind the passenger seat, provided you dont have passengers in teh back. or mount it in the hatch somewhere

as for that rad cleaner crap, walmart sells it, it says on the bottle how to use it. after you flush your system, make sure you put in some water wetter, it helps lubricate and keep the metals from deteriorating...

who wants an EGT gauge? US$260 is retail...

haha yeah man, do it yourself and learn... thats the best way

as for overheating under the seat, well i run a 360watt JBL Pro amp under my seat and have yet to have any problems, thats powering two 10" subs. so you shouldnt have any problems just for mids

g'luck

i just like having my amp under the seat for safety precautions, in order to get it out the seat has to be removed and even then its bolted into the floor really damn good.

even with a alarm, ive had stereo stuff stolen from me before

this is the best i can do. you can jack it up from the side there, theres a notch on the metal where its supposed to be jacked up, but that isnt generally the best spot. about a inch or two deeper into the center of the car you can see the frame, which is metal bars hanging down 1 or 2 inches below the rest... just remember to use jackstands or something else to hold the car up

what are you doing anyhow?
