Grego, I just finished installing mine. MK II with firewall moved forward 1.5". I was really sweating this with the firewall mod but it worked. I have a total of 0 clearance against the firewall with the boxes mounted with the cable side forward. If you have a stock firewall you should be fine.

Cheers, Mike

Grego, I saw Nick Smith's when I was at the build school. He moved his firewall 4" forward & got everything behind the firewall. You might contact him & see how much clearance he had.

Cheers, Mike
