    Weld in or Bolt on SBC's?

    Just wanted to see what you all thought. Are Bolt on's as rigid as the Weld in's? Obviously the weld ins will be stronger, but will the bolts ins perform the same?

    the only issue with bolt in subframe connectors is over time, they will elongate the holes where the bolts go in. you only have four points where the sfc actually connect to the car. some have bought bolt ins, then welded them in place.

    I have bolt in double diamond 3 point SFC's.. Have had them on now 20k+ miles and 200+ times down the 1/4 mile track and zero problems. I'm only running mid 12's, if I ever decide to add a cam and around a 100 shot, I think I will get them welded in.

    When installing SFC's do you have to load the suspension or not?
