First Impressions:
Car feels great with the Ohlins, really liking how they feel on the street. Can't wait to try these out on the track. They however don't go as low as some of the other other options out there. Mostly designed to stay at near stock ride height if not just a tad lower.

We did run into one issue though where Ohlins supplied the wrong front spring. They gave us a 180mm spring instead of a 200m spring.

Car will be at Supra Sunday in Corona :)

Looks perfect with just the right amount of shock travel to let them do their thing.

KW offers lifetime warranty vs Ohlins 1 or 2 year.
Though I've read couple users warranty denied due to track use. You'll want to reach out to KW and confirm this before track use.

Yeah my experience with KW support was NOT good.

Couple updates since we got the Ohlins installed. The SPL End Links are not compatible with the strut's end link bracket. The bracket is in a "J" shape and is hitting the end link when going full lock. This is also causing the bearing to be out of articulation due to the end link is bent. End links were set to stock length.

We are currently working with SPL to get some custom hardware to clear the bracket.

Because I can't use the SPL end links my sway bar hits the SPL lower control arms, so I had to chop the tips off the sway bar and now it's really close, I put some tape to see how it does over time and I still found some marks mostly during complete opposite lock of the steering wheel. So yea it's all a bit of a mess, hopefully SPL can come with a solution to accommodate the end links.

Yea i'm in the same boat, this whole ordeal has been a nightmare... Sway bars do not fit spl parts unless you do endlinks and endlinks don't fit the ohlins. I'm assuming ohlins just made these coils for stock cars, kinda dissapointed I was very excited to put ohlins on my car. Ohlins Also do not fit the verus universal camber plates

Separate from the ohlin mounting issue, did you make sure there was no preload on the bar when you installed those endlinks? the bar is way high, I cannot see how there isn't preload there.
