    I got a set of grantelli SFC's through the group buy on this site for $100. I would def suggest you get a weld in set. I dont know how to weld so I had to take it to a shop. Prices on install seem to vary alot.

    Absolutley neccesary to keep your f-body from stretching and twisting. You go to long without subframe connectors and you will start to lose your door to fender gaps and your t-tops will start leaking. This is especially true if you are more than stock power. SFC's will also make your car handle better, you'll get fewer squeaks and better traction. Def a good mod...

    Black With T-Tops
    96 Z28 M6

    Helps get power to the ground as well.

    Question: this guy has a 94 camaro M6 with t-tops. Pushing atleast 417 to the wheels. First of all he says he has 3.73 gears? I dont know why but how would 3.73 gears go with the M6. Another thing is that he says he has too much power for sub frame connectors and it will mess up the car or something. Is there any cases where that is true?

    I just put a set of weld on BMRs on my 2002 not a huge difference, granted I am mostly stock. However, the car does feel a little bit firmer, but nothing drastic.

    I do believe some 94s came with 3.73s. I need to do more research but my old 94 B4C M6 turns higher RPMs while cruising then my 02, and I don't think they were changed by the old owner.

    I had a 94 Z28 with 4:10 gears and sheared a tooth off power shifting 4th gear and I decided to go with 3:73 gears and an auburn posi. The 3:73 worked nice for an all around great gear ratio with the M6. I can believe him on the gear ratio.

    SFC's are there to prevent you from twisting your car into a pretzel. The more power your pushing it seems there would be more of a need for them. Im not 100%, but that sounds like B.S. to me.
