Nice write up! That 24 mm bolt is one use, I had to buy a pack of four but they were only a few bucks each. I know some people reuse the bolt, I suppose it's OK but I wouldn't re-torque it any more than once.

Great write-up! Nice to see another GT here :)

I was debating on whether or not to post here, but there is so much good info, and I figure I have installed just about all of the Boss parts on my car anyway, so was hoping it was cool with everyone.

Yeah there are a few of us on here. I felt the same way... too much good info to pass up, especially if you're tracking your car.

No worries here, everyone is welcome. And nice job with the install instructions.

More than cool to post here, welcome and great writeup. I know some GTs that have been modded to be faster than some modded bosses ::)

Thanks! Yeah I had that experience the first time I took this car to the Memphis track. I got hooked up with a 2012 Boss Laguna Seca, and he was running R-compounds. I am uploading those videos now, will have to post them in new thread!
 
Good writeup. One important safety item to note:

When working with airbags, it is extremely important to never place the bag (or wheel with bag installed), face down on the ground or benches. If the bag were to go off it would go flying with its housing and the wheel.
