Just give them a call and I'm sure they would be more than willing to help you out. Or, you could check the coupe forum on ffcobra.com. Lots of helpful people over there.

Looks like this car has the wrong combination of something. We have the UCAs in as far as they will allow in their adjustment and we can only squeek out -.5 degrees of camber with 5 degrees of caster. If we pull the caster into the 3 range then we loose the little negative camber we have achieved.

Any thoughts?

It's possible that the car has the pin drive length lower a-arms, and the stock length upper a-arms to cause this. My coupe still had quite a bit of thread left in the upper arms with -1degree of camber and 5.5 degrees of caster, but I'm also running power steering, so this spec works great for me.

Maybe a call to FFR with the length measurements of each arm?. Drastic measure, cut down the threaded sleeve on the upper a-arm? I can check the stock length on the upper and lower arms later tonight on my coupe to give you the stock bolt on wheel length if needed.
