i added a planum to the engine. (I think that is how you spell it) but ever since i did the cold air intake, the planum and the high flow cads my strut bar doesnt fit!! I know of other people who have done the same and more to their cars but their strut bar is ok. Is it because I have a 6mt and the others have a 5at? Another question should I purchase an after market bar? What the mechanic want to do to my bar is heat is and take out the small curve in the bar to make it fit however, i was told that when metal is heated it weakens it. I dont want to be driving the car then next thing the dam n bar flies out!!! I know that is a little extreme but HELP!!!!

Get the Stillen strut bar that they designed to work in conjunction with their supercharger kits. Great looking bar with dimple die rigidity. It mounts in the stock location and wraps around the front of the engine.

I definately wouldn't use the bar that was heated and bent.
