Tony, I remember you mentioned top and bottom torque braces, got a link or anything to a thread on that, Id be interested to see how the bottom one goes on.
Hey bro good to see you too. Yeah here it is.

Page 5 shows a picture of the lower mount.

You can buy dual braces here. They are made by Torque Forward.

Nothing crazy just follow these directions.

It attaches to your front and rear transmission mounts. The front mount is the one that
takes the bracket and the other one bolts right on to the rear (easy to tell you've got the
right bolts on the rear one as it's 3 in a triangle shape right by one another.) Go by the
photo.

Note: The engine does not need to be supported for installation of this Rear Brace.
1. Take out the 15mm bolt closest to the passenger side tire. Put the end of the brace with
the adjustments there.
2. Then put the bracket on the 19mm transmission bolt.
3. When you hook up the brace to the bracket make sure the bolt is at an angle, this will
pretension it a little. (17mm on both sides)

You don't have to go too crazy, it will end up very stiff with a lot of vibration. No wheel hop though. I only run an Ingalls right now. It works. I'm thinking about doing the lower torque brace too.

hey skymynx did i see you pull out of BK tonight around 11:30? my friend was there with his camero and i was meeting up with him, right before i got there i saw a red SS punch it out of there.

Also saw a black SS in front of dunkin donuts around 12 is that anybody on here?

My friend in the camero got pulled over 3 times. got off twice then got a $100 ticket for illegal u-turn the third time, and the cop told him if he saw him on that stretch of highway again he'd bust him for all the **** wrong with his car sucks but it was sorta funny.

i was planning on going but couldn't make it

by the way any of you guys ever see that insane kid on a bike?
Holy ****, this kid was nuts. he was doing like 1000 foot wheelies at like 60mph,
and twice he stood up on the seat of his bike for like 600 feet when he was going like 50. and no im not exagerating.
i thought this kid was gonna kill himself but it was ****** awesome. i was seriously scared watching him though.

wow so raced a black ss/sc tonight with stage 2 and K&N intake. fairly close race surprisingly, makes me more aware of the fact that i need my injectors and apexi neo to come in on monday maybe then i would have done alot better. by the way if you were at the pike tonight and saw a red cobalt ss/sc racing a black one that was me. wow im glad i didnt do a hordedous launch and just end up spinning till 3rd gear.

It's called the Berlin Turnpike in Newington and Berlin CT. It's a long strip that a lot of nice cars ride down on Friday and Saturday nights. I'm down to meet at the Burger King on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington. Maybe Saturday night. Here is the info.
