are two strut bars paired together? or do you just look for different mounting types from different companies and just make then fit?

the blue one with the turnbuckle looks nice

Yeah, I've never looked into changing or anything. The 15/16 of the Si is plenty enough to handle the upgrade. And I've never considered doing a booster delete. I havent looked into many options but I've read there are problems with the Wilwood "standard" kit you see in the shaved bays failing. Being that I actually use the car, I figured it was a good idea to keep what I know works...lol.

And the dual bars, it is just adding a bit more rigidity. One connecting to the shock towers via the studs of the suspension and nuts on top. One connecting to the top studs, just like the Si tower bar or the CTR tower bar.

two different mounting types. and they are from two different companies. the blue one is a cusco bar painted electron blue pearl. the other is from a japanese company juran racing. they are a company that is all over in japan just not seen in the states.

yeah, the wilwood booster delete is for front brakes only. thats why its so dangerous when people use it for all four. with the right sized MC you won't notice the booster deleted. the reason i want to run an oem MC is because they have a wide range of sizes and its a direct link to the braking system better feel and pedal modulation(not to mention oem MC's will always be available). the wilwood kit is not meant to support two support 4wheel brakes. it will make the pedal a little stiffer. i know a lot of people that dd booster less setups.
