Anyone Intalled an FSTB?

I'm thinking about getting an MRZ Front Strut Tower Brace...just wondered if anyone here is using one and if it made any noticeable difference in handling?

Post some pics too...I'd like to see how they look.


Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

I have a DC STB. I can't really tell if it helped with handling because these stock Goodyear tires really suck.

There nothing more then a new peice under your hood. Firewall is so close to the towers. Will people say "OMG i can feel it"? of course they will. Not saying it does nothing but If you want better handling i suggest a rear sway bar/lowering springs/struts.

Yeah, I figured the effects would be minimal. If nothing else, they look cool! I might get it engraved with RocketFoot...LOL

I'll probably get the shock tower caps to finish it off! I'll have to looking to the rear sway bar option also. Lowering is out of the question, this is a daily driver and I would never make it into the parking lot at work. My bumper wouldn't last a week.

Do not need to be lowered for better handling. The Pro-Kit lowers it less then an inch but the spring is amazing in the corners.

worthless as a performance mod. I have one because it's pretty.
