    I like the entry level STB. I'm picking one up this weekend along with some sub frame connectors.

    The thin-wall one is plenty stout and you will get many arguments that a strut-tower brace isn't needed at all. I have the "regular" BMR piece and it seems to have reduced the cowl-shake somewhat over bumps. It also make a nice mount for my nitrous solenoid wiring... I would reccommend subframe-connectors (or a cage) over any other bracing.

    no need for chromoly for a bar that serves a purpose of simply leaning on it when working inside the engine bay... get regular one.

    I got the normal one. It's not worth the money to save a couple pounds if that. Way too expensive. the STB doesn't really do shit anyways...I spend $100 on the BMR stb and wish i bought a cheaper one.

    *******CHROME MOLY******** lol. i wouldn't bother with it dude. just get the regular one. its only a couple pounds more for $30 less. unless ur OCD with drag racing, then don't get it. the STB doesn't do shit anyways, might only help a little but i didn't feel any difference.
