This is an easy mod for those who haven't done it yet.

This stiffens up the Torque box area of the car and ties in the front LCA mount to the frame rail.

The Steeda torque box bracing.

It is a bolt on mod, but they do recommend having it welded on.

I will be welding it later.












Left over parts...factory wipers. Not sure exactly what these are for...

I have those on my GT, and they're bolted on. I don't know how much gain there is to be had to an amateur driver like myself by welding them on. Plus, they can be easily removed if the future buyer of the car doesn't want them.

True.

I plan to road course the car a few times in the future though.

I road race my GT, but I still don't plan on welding them.

It is a blast I hit speed from hairpin 20 mpr turns to over 145mph straight aways. The way that I mounted the camera was I made a aluminium bracket that screwed into the existing sunvisor mount.

The wipers are actually deflectors that are supposed to protect the gas tank from rocks, skunks, possums, armadillos etc.:D

My front splitter is 2" off the ground, that will boot off any skunks.:D
