    yea u take off the intake grate the bracket is 2 peaces so u can put it over the lip of the ride plate infront of the 2 inserts & bolt it together u need 2 drill 2 holes through ur intake grate & counter sink it 4 the 2 screws so u can screw the intake grate 2 the R&D bracket, the R&D bracket is held up by the ride plate no more plastic 2 worry about,2 bad they dont have one 4 the rxt, hope this help

    Bill, they dont make the r+d girdle kit for the Gtx/ Rxt.
    For the Gtx/Rxt it is easier and cheaper to make your own.
    Pull the intake grate and take a look at the boss on the ride plate where the center bolt goes. You are going to put 2 more bolts in it. Temporaily install the grate, measure 13 mm outward from the center of the centerbolt and 7 mm towards the rear and make a centerpunch on the grate. Do the same for the otherside. Now drill though the grate and the boss with a 3/16" drill bit. Remove grate, Tap the holes in the boss to 6mm x 1.0 thread. Now drill the 2 new holes in the grate to 1/4 inch. Take the grate to a drill press and use a bit just larger than the head of the 6x1x25 mm flat head ss screw to drill the counter sink bore. Drill it just deep enough so that if you set the screw in the hole in the grate the screw head is flush with the grate. Now do your final assembly with silicone one the grate and blue locktite on the bolts. You wont pull anymore inserts out after this.
    It is the same as mentioned by Jerry and others except you dont need to get the grate milled. I think either way is fine, whatever you prefer.

    Did you get your intake kit installed? Any troubles?
    Thanks again!
