has anyone used a set of 5 point harnesses with stock turbo 2 (10ae) seats? if so how do you keep them in place? on the FD and aftermarket seats you can pass them throught he seat but not on these.

I would seriously recommend against it. In a serious situation the belts can slide off your shoulders. Either get an aftermarket seat, or buy a junkyard seat with the detached headrest, and use it for track events only (the other benifit of a junkyard seat is being able to cut a slot into the seat bottom for the anti-sub belt).

Harnesses, an aftermarket seat, and a roll cage should be considered a package deal.

First, NO harnesses w/o aftermarket seat. The stock TII seats push belts out too far --> broken collarbones, or worse.

Second, no aftermarket seats w/o roll cage. In event of a rollover, you (almost instinctivly) will lay down across the front seats. With aftermarket seat, you can't lay down --> possible bump on head, or broken neck.

Its a package deal.

What about H style harnesses? That's what I'd run if it were me.
