    SLP doesn't make SFCs for verts. At least I've never been able to find a set. The only company I can find that has them readily available is BMR.

    3pt connectors are better IMO. If I had a coupe that is the route I would go. So between those two I'd go SLP.

    The BMR weld-in SFCs and strut brace came in, and now installed on my vert. Nice improvement to chassis stiffness and handling overall, not life-changing, but noticeable. I think the ride has improved too. It cost me $160 to get them welded in by a local speed shop.

    Here are pics:

    NO doubt - just waiting to put on a new one with headers... funny thing is there are several inches above that flat pipe - so it does not help clearance at all. It is that way just to choke the motor

    I'm looking into modifying some to make 3 point ones for 'verts, but as of now, you'd need to cut 2 slits in the stock ones. It would help a ton to put a roll hoop with forward braces to the subframe, but they're not real practical and you lose a bunch of space
