ok in theory but in reality the honda engine cradle so to speak is pretty strong. so really all you need to do is get a good lower tie bar and tie togeter the lower control arms. but since you already bought it, maybe you can use it in case you bottom out to protect the underside, kinda like a skidpan

but on another note, a lotta ppl forget that honda designed the car to be collapsable, so if you hit a curb, certain replacable parts are supposed to give way to protect the subframe. the H-brace might affect that, so if you do hit a curb over the winter, you could end up causing more damage then without the brace. just a thought.

thats a good way to look at it bruno. So essentially, it could do more harm than good.

Yeah thats definetely a thought guys. I was kind of wondering that. I'll take a good hard look at it when it arrives. It was only 40 so I'll see when it gets here. The handling improvements arent worth dying for if I get in an accident.
