Some tips for you...

1. If you are adding power, you should consider strengthening the chassis AND adding a bolt-in roll bar. Autopower makes a really nice bar that will protect you when properly installed plus it will strengthen the chassis/unibody.
2. A set of subframe connectors (like Maximum Motorsports full length) will do more to stiffen the chassis than a strut tower brace will.
3. Maximum Motorsports also makes a STB for your car. I don't know if it will clear the CAI you are looking at but give them a call and ask.

I have a 2003 cobra vert and it has the maximum motorsports subframe connectors and the maximum motorsports strut tower brace. The subframe connectors are awesome and i noticed a difference just pulling out of Prodyno's parking lot the day they installed them for me. They make the car much more ridgid. I am running a C&L cold air intake with my strut tower brace and have no issues. Good luck and there are many companys out threre but, I highly suggest Maximum motorsports.

Again, I have a 2003 Cobra Convertible. The MM full length subframe connectors are your best buy for stability. I had the MM 4pt shock tower brace with a Whipple and JLT cold air without too many problems. Removal of the CAI will be a bit of a hassle at times. I currently have a MM 4 pt. shock tower brace in really great condition for sale if you are interested. It is black.

Just for you info..
The three point that attaches to the firewall, be advised, will transmit some noise into the cabin as will I believe the sub frame connectors.

Doing FLSBFC's are a must, especially if you're a vert. MM makes some quality ones that fit almost everyone's budget. If your budget is larger, then look at the Stifflers or Kenny Brown options...
