Looks decent. I wonder why the mounts are colored pink. This isnt a Subaru.

Looks red to me... But still looks pretty nice. But kind of expensive for a factory part?

You need to calibrate your monitor if those are pink.

well, if you mean aesthetically, it looks cool to me, and prefer it over the others.

if you mean functionally, i doubt any of those "rear strut bars" do anything in this car--note that your towers are connected up top by the frame of the car, so there will be minimal flex there anyway, especially compression/expansion between the towers. your car already has a "strut bar" built in. just adds weight and bling, and not so much bling anyway since it's hidden behind plastic.

Hey I finally installed it, The result is stunning. I was going to buy sway bar but no more after having this! On the corner it doesn't shoulder anymore
I should say well worth the money I paid, BTW I didn't pay $400

Looks pretty neat, was cutting the plastic difficult to get it looking good? I'm still not sure how it would stiffen up the towers that much considering the frame is only a foot above it doing the same thing.

In that last picture it appears that there is an entire engine sitting on the driveway, did you forget something?

Thank, I had to cut the plastic cover to be able to put it back on.
Frame is doin their job but it meant for street not track, specially in high speed cornering will be safer so normal people don't know how to correct steer. If frame was strong enough why Mitsubishi put strut bar at front? Any way I feel on the hard cornering I have the most pressure on both rear tires not only the out side one, also lot less bodyroll.

That is the other guys EVOx engine in our town that he blows! My friend bought it from him so he can upgrade the engine of his rally car
