Anybody installed these? From 1 to OMG how much did it improve handling characteristics. Would I be better off with a front sway bar? They look like they may be moderately challenging to install.

Subaru folks had a similar mod like this. The Japan only STi had it factory, and at some point the US model STi got it, but there were a number of aftermarket units that came out too. Some a simple two point brace, some 3 point braces.

That said, you're triangulating the chassis to improve rigidity. That can equate to a number of things, but easiest is probably better turn-in and some suspension benefits. After about 17 minutes in the car, those gains will be forgotten. :p It's one of those mods that are final pieces, crème de la crème, icing on the cake. Not a foundational piece. There are so many other soft squishy bits to address before you do those IMO. bushings, swaybars, coilovers with a good camber plate, performance alignments, etc...
