I went with the 2 bolt one. Same as what's in the 2012 boss 302. I'm not sure if the 4 has added benefits or if there's added stability. I just liked the smooth appearance.

I bought the 4 bolt chrome one. Don't really have a good answer why. Just liked the beefy appearance of the 4 bolt over the 2 bolt. Looks like it would give better rigidity to the front.

I recently switched from SR Performance 2-bolt to the 4-bolt model and I did not notice any difference in stiffness, handling or NVH whatsoever.

Either would be a huge improvement (that is, a noticeable one) over having no front strut tower brace at all (decreased body roll I believe is what it is technically called). My recommendation would be to not spend extra money for one with 4 bolts on each side. It's a relatively cheap mod with a noticeable handling improvement. It's a shame you are not closer to me since I have the 2-bolt one just laying around but shipping would probably kill any worthwhile cost savings for you.
