    SFCs are in, finally!!!

    bought edelbrock weld in subframe connectors early last summer and put them in the basement (note to self: always get things done right away...).
    anyway, they are in now, had them installed professionally, since i can't weld. now please back me up on this: my car runs smoother and quieter, much less creaking and rattling.
    i'll take a trip to denmark next weekend, what can be expected in terms of handling at highway speeds?

    Definatley less body flex, which yes will give you better handling, if you like to drag race (which I doubt) you will get some more wheel hop-no biggie. Does this mean your going to throw in shocks and springs now? After that lca's and relocation brackets, followed by a new torque arm, then some headers, cam, heads, supercharger, followed up by a complete gutting of the car

    Mine you can't even see unless the car is hoisted.... so clearance is not an issue at all!

    You will definitely notice a difference especially around corners, like c5 said, less body flex means the car will feel and handle tighter. One of the best mods that I've done to mine! Especially with an M6.

    I agree, SFC's helped me waste a half tank of gas after I put them on. So much fun to drive that night...

    i'll try and make pictures tomorrow, today the weather is shitty and it's getting dark already. but like konigandy said, invisible from the side. but astonishing how much sounder the car feels.
