i e-mailed skunk2 after that and they said they don't even know when it'll come out, when they have a price set and all these websites have them online thumbsdown

Skunk2 Strut Tower Bars
Aluminum Upper Strut Tower Bar

By tying in the upper suspension points at the shock towers, the strength and rigidity of the chassis increases while the overall handling performance of the vehicle improves. Skunk2 Racing strut tower bars are made from ultra strong and lightweight AL6061-T6 and offer the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any strut bar on the market. Each bar is highly polished and features anodized aluminum brackets.

celicacrazy did you not read my post?

the bar IS NOT released yet, websites have them online but you will not get it
skunk2 does NOT know when it will be released
APR is a very good strut bar, you hear complaints because nobody installed it correctly.

Sorry guys but the development of the Skunk2 front strut bar really depends on me because my GTS is their testing car for fitting, and further research & development.

They used my car to test fit the cat-back exhaust. They said they wanted to work on a strut bar but that meant leaving my car there for a few days. No one is having my car for a few days.

They market these products for sale even though they haven't even developed them yet.

It should be similiar to what other exhausts are putting out, after all our engines are only 1.8 liter na.
