    I would recommend just getting somebudy to weld them. Might be cheaper now, but doing it right now will save you money in the long run.

    Weld in are cheaper. Bolt ins are easy. I havent seen any studies on it but im sure weld ins are stronger but at the same time I doubt that much stronger. Plus I dont like the idea of welding a non stock part to the car. thats just me though.

    bolts-ins only connect to two places on the car for each side. over time, they will shift around and elongate the holes they mount to. weld-ins connect all the way down the side of the car on each side where it's welded to. no movement. the more the connection points, the stiffer the car will be.

    If you weld in the SFC's how difficult is it to drop your exhaust in the event that you might want to change to another system? Or the driveshaft?

    your basic SFC are two bars going down the sides of the car. they go under the door rails under the car. unless you get something like the double diamond, there is no issue.

    from what i've heard its night and day diff. i wont know exactly because i'm getting the MAC panhard put in to, so i wont know which is making more difference, but i'm willing to bet the SFC's are gonna do much more for me
