You'll want to brace the firewall to the dash, can be done (I've been
eyeballing it a lot lately for my setup) and maybe have to put a plate in the
firewall insode the engine bay for mounting to a flat surface....also, not
sure how you'll like the car type setups....the pedals may be too short, and
not stick down enough, you'll either need to make longer pedals, or find one
from a truck.
