    it will if you have something to connect them such as a tunnel mount TA or a tunnel brace. I have 3 point SFC's w/ bmr tunnel brace. I like it alot.

    I thought they cross connected and that alone added extra strength/stability. Are you saying they need or are better with this tunnel brace? I have no idea what that is either, looked it up briefly and so far from the descriptions I see, I still have no idea what it is...

    Unless you plan on track racing, just do the 2 point.

    3 points do not connect. there middle point connects where your factory tunnel brace goes.

    if you drag race you will be happier with a tunnel mount TA to connect them.
    if you stret drive mostly or road race, connect them with a tunnel brace bar and then you can keep your TA the stock length

    No way that is possible. Although I think I recall something a bit different under your car. Pics?
    Unless you have 3 point SFC's and that was a typo.


    If you plan on a tunnel braced torque arm or something similar, the 3 point SFC's will add stability.
    If not....just get 2 point.

    SFC's are 2-pt and welded in. The cross-member for the front TA mount relocation is welded to the SFC's.

    If I'm remembering correctly, the 3-point SFCs weren't really that much more money. I figured 3 was better than 2, so I went with them.

    Both the 2-Point and 3-Point SFC's are a nice set up. The 3-Point are over kill for some applications, however they do tie the car together nicely when using a g-load brace or short torque arm.

    Hope that helps!
