Early and late versions to go with early/late td engine bars, or so I understand.

yes, two versions. that have their specific carrier bars. by far the most common is early. But its not really early/late. more standard/extra sound deadening

I was under the impression that on syncros there can be a mounting lug mismatch on one rear corner if you have the "wrong" engine bars?

Bash plates are specific to both engine bars. You can't mix and match.
Swear filter is quite accurate :run
