Sorry for the late chiming in with this. Just recovering from PRK laser eye surgery last week. I'm assuming it was you sleeper that emailed me, sorry for the lack of response. I'm just beginning to be able to see a computer/phone screen.

Yes ACE Engineering is no longer and has been rebranded as Mint Design for almost 2 years now. My family and I along with the business is in the process of moving at the end of this month. So things are a bit hectic but it's all for the better.

As for the underbody braces, yes I do have the jig to produce them. The design is superior to Cusco or pretty much any aluminum version out there (I haven't kept up to date if there are any new versions out there). I know they will not clear an aftermarket oil pan or fit a ST165.

As for a new build, I'd need at least 10 people and it'd end up in the $350 range. I'd also tweak the design to make it better than the Rev01 design. Since I have the ability to do CNC cutting in house. I would need a local ST18X to make sure everything lines up as it's been a few years since I've used the jig.

Right now with the move and with my existing workload it wouldn't be until early next year.

I will keep an eye on this thread, this was a part I was considering adding to my GT-Four.

I'd be interested in one for ~$350

I could also build a custom one if I could get a car to work form locally.
