    I have also heard of the 3 points cracking windshields...mine is already cracked before the STB it never got any worse after the install...but wouldnt a 3 point be better by better i mean stiffer because you have triangulated the brace...like the difference between 2 and 3 point SFC's?
    Where is your windshield cracked? And what about your intake, I have never heard of them?

    Also about the comment to SLP.. I think that SLP makes good products if you wanna stay STOCK...!! What I mean by that is that they are BOLT-ONS..If your car is warranty then you just take them off..!! And its a good way to put extra power in the car without it breaking anything. .
    Are you serious? "Does work or why would they build it?" Thank you for winning the most naive person award. Anyone know the answer to this one? Would they make it because they know they can say it works and people will buy it, thus they can make money. Ding ding ding. I am not saying that is what people are doing with this STB, but don't act like just because they sell it that means it works.

    Didnt you ever see the Electric supercharger on ebay for cars? Why dont you get that one also... I mean, they sell it, it must boost your car right?

    Actually I know someone with that Electric supercharger.. He put it on his civic and it did do something cuz he race his friend and beat him by about 2 car legths.. they were both civic's same yr.. had intake and exhust(Both of them)..(Friend had electric supercharger..) So it did gain some hp and tq.. the #'s might not be a big gain but then again it DID SOMETHING...

    flat black
    mine is cracked on the very bottom drivers side coming up from the wiper arm stud...caught a massive rock that got chucked by a semi and it hit right on the edge of the glass..broke the wiper arm cracked for abou 8-10" then stopped never got any worse i figured it would but dont know....also after the STB was put in and the entire suspension was done i had the windshield pulled and put back in so that the stiffness of the body wasnt causing any extra stress...you can pick up the back of my car on a LCA mount and it will pick up the front of the car the exact same amount....i think she might be a lil stiff...the first time it happened i was freakin out cause im soo used to popping the Ttops out cause of flex and they person who lifted the car didnt take them out..anywho nough said...

    Read your thread just fine, I didn't say anything about your explaination. But, you claimed that it must work because they sell it... They is what I thought was hilarious.

    did the civics race before? You know... if you look at all the stock Camaros on here... they all run different times. Amazing huh, that electronic supercharger did nothing for your friends civic. His car just happened to be a little faster. Maybe he shifted better. Maybe he weighed less or what he had in his car was less weight. Or maybe, they could have been in the EXACT same condition, and still one could be faster. Amazing isnt it.

    saying that a strut tower brace doesn't work as well because SLP made it is a bit rediculous. it's a bar with plates welded on, just like how BMR makes them. and I only paid 100 for mine. works great. so do my 3 pt. SFC's i bought from them. and my lid, and my air bellows. I shopped around before I bought them and chose all of them after the fact. I'm kinda thinking maybe I should've gotten the BMR SFC's because they tuck up better, but that's about it.

    Thumbs up THE BEST "STB" is ~~~~~

    The CHROME 2-bolt one from "_________" products. Oh yeah, they also make the best headers with THE MOST ground clearance too. Price ~ $125.00 shipped for the brace.
