Update and a little more detailed install:
My order for the proper version came Friday, installed today:
First step, get your car on ramps or jack up both sides (ramps is way easier and less time consuming) As you can see we have an R8 in the garage as well…and to think I don’t have kids…
-it’s for my nephew putting a red bow on it for Christmas
Here is a panoramic of the underside, again 5 t25 screws on the left, 1 large bolt T25 in the center, and 5 t25 screws on the right.
Remove those ten screws/bolts then use a creeper and slide further down the pan until you see the 3 T40 bolts with washers.
These have loctite on them, so you will have to break them loose. Once done the belly pan can drop in the center allowing you to take it out from the front tabs.
You then have access to the mount
I have some what longish arms, so I just dropped the belly pan on the ground (it’s still attached in the far back) and used my creeper to get as close as I could. Remove the bolt, slide the insert up and in, 034 facing the front of the car and trq back down per the directions.
Once that’s done you will want to slide the front of the belly pan back in place, making sure the tab goes above the front bumper lip, and the holes align. When I’m doing the reinstall I put the black T25 bolt (with yellow mark) back in now to help keep it in place.
Once that’s done I move to the three T40 bolts, using Loctite 242
Put them back in and tighten so the yellow marks on all three line up with the yellow marks right outside the hole (note your washers yellow mark may have shifted when you removed them so it may not line up with the mark on the bolt and hole)
For putting all those T25s back in I recommend picking up one of these adapters. Makes it easy to screw it in by hand and then final tighten with the wrench
Make sure everything looks good and enjoy! Review on NVH and benefits coming up after driving it around some more!
