I got this one http://www.americanmuscle.com/sr-str...0509-gtv6.html

Four bolt one. I think they look a little more solid.
Winter here so haven't driven with it on yet. Easy mod, I guess they probably do more good on a convertible.
I do like the look of them, so if it does anything its a bonus.

Make sure you use washers. They come with it from AM but there kinda weak. I just picked up some washers from Home Depot and there a lot stronger.

I put a couple of washers under my brace to give just a hair of clearance over my manifold cover-
