Ok, here is my total countermeasure install.
It includes my newly acquired STi-R, 9500ix & Blinder M47. Give me your thoughts? I am still considering changing the antenna location by fabricating a plate that attaches directly under the bottom the front plate to allow the antenna to come out a little but opinions are welcome.
My ultimate set-up will be to keep my 8500 X50 as a back up, sell the ix, buy a speedcheetah mirror and V1 to run with my STi-R. One small step at a time.
