MaxEngine2.jpg (86610 bytes) The Stillen Front Strut Tower Brace (FSTB) was the first handling modification I did to the car.  All it is is a solid piece of machined aluminum that spans the engine compartment between the two strut towers.  Seems simple, but the improvement in handling this thing makes is dramatic.  The addition of the strut bar stiffens the front suspension and makes the car corner flat by eliminating all front end body flexing.  Total install time is about 20 minutes.  Highly recommended, a lot of bang for the buck.
