Subframe connectors

So I'm just wondering why peoples opinions are on the subframe connectors? I'm putting a 4.6 in a car that had a 3.8. I don't know if there's any real difference in the main frame but I'd just like to get some opinions on these reinforcements.

Re: Subframe connectors

they are great items to have, on a vert especially and they are cheap as well... just have to install them on a drive on lift.

Re: Subframe connectors

basically the mustang flexes easily and they tie in the front and rear frame rails to tighten it up.

Ok. Thanks! I'm gonna have to put that at the top of the list also are there any threads on how the PI head swap works, what's involved, that kind of stuff. I've seen all the threads where they say it's a great upgrade but a lot of work but I haven't found any that say what actually has to be done.

It's pretty straight forward.
Head gaskets
Heads
Intake manifold
New valve covers
And valve cover gaskets
