V-Sixer Monte Carlo bar

Googled this up last weekend, got a hit for a guy on Ebay, made the bid (50 bones!) and got the part yesterday. Will post pix later today. Fit right over the inside bolts of the strut towers, about perfectly. One curious (hopefully not problematic) issue: The hood didn't want to shut for about the first ten times I tried, after the install. Near as could tell, the hood insulation was not "giving" with the new bar in place. I let the hood rest against it for about ten minutes while pondering, and then it closed on the next try. The fit appears very snug in there, but am gonna give it a road test this morning and make sure there's nothing to worry about.

Looks like the guy is selling more of 'em here:

Not in my opionion. I spoke to Steve Saleen for 1/2 hour at a show recently and this was one of the questions I had.
He claims the new '05 chassis is so stiff, they didn't offer a tower brace.
I feel yr $$ can be way better served in other components if you are looking for road hugging benefits.
Will that at least improve the torsion on convertible ?, the verts definitively have more flex but will it help?
