Subframe Connectors

Okay so next mod ?!

Maybe the subframe connectors full size , welded of course

I was checking out the SVE and the MM and they look so identical .. Wonder if they are the same..

Also this performance shop quoted me for the " biggest and thickest FL subframe sill ever get "

He said 200 for them and installed
Wonder if that's a good price

Stifflers. Get their full subframe system, it has the actual connectors, jacking rails and the subframe matrix.

Stifflers is a bit excessive in my opinion. All it does is add weight with no real benefit other than lateral rigidity in the event of a major colision.

Slow my only guess for the difference between the two would be fitment. I personally have the MM set on mine and they fit just fine. That being said, I have never seen the SVE on a car before so I can't vouch for their build quality and fitment. $200 sounds about right. Just make sure the shop has a drive on lift to use to weld them in.

Depends on what you want. Something like autocross which I do you want it to be stiff as hell.

Regular sub-frame connectors will do just that. Here's my question for you, if the area between the punch welds and frame rails was so weak that it would start to flex under heavy lateral loads then why doesn't everybody else besides Stiffler and Kenny Brown make them? Seems like a waste of money to me, especially since a kit like that is gonna add 20 lbs to the car. I researched a lot about the Stifflers setup before I got my SFCs and came to the conclusion that there is no real benefit to their system on a car like mine. Granted that's just my personal opinion on their kit.
