A heavy duty one that goes straight across would provide a marginal handling improvement, but that would be very difficult to package in our cars, and would at the very least require a fiberglass hood and replacing the lift supports with a prop rod. The 1" diameter bar with multiple bends in it is going to deflect probably with less force than it takes for the unibody itself to deflect, so that style isn't doing anything. Either way, I can't see how it could contribute to the firewall cracking issue.
A few months ago Bill from SCP posted on one (several) of the MN12 groups that he was going to do a group buy for the front STB. I was interested (even if it doesn't do much) as it would tie (pun intended) into my suspension upgrades. I didn't move forward though as life had other requirements out of me first. I don't know if the group buy ever happened.
I doubt it. The demand for such items just isn't there anymore. I could barely put together 3 other orders besides my own for a custom built 3-core Fluidyne radiator that was ~ $150 less than what SCP charges for a comparable Griffin radiator.
