push the battery right back as far as it will go and as for the ECU bracket, it may need modding

i well fancy a strut brace to remove some of the body roll...

are there any that fit a bit easier than the sparco one?

maybe an OMP or sumthin?

Newer style OMP upper ones fit a treat.
Lower ones give you sod all ground clearance:

OMP fits a treat, you still have to move the battery back slightly, but not as much as the sparco.

Didn't even fit it, just held it up in place to see for the photo - my hand's just out of shot on the right!

BTW, Strut braces will not control body roll, they just make the body stiffer and turn-in sharper. Handling's a wee bit better too, mind.
