Are you talking about a strut tower brace? I have an entire how-to posted on on how to install one. I also say, if you have a decent metal saw / jig saw with metal cutting blade, then don't pay the extra for the turbo version. The modification to make it fit is easy to cut out if you follow the layout I've shown.

Tell ya what, so you don't have to go look it up, I'll post the same pictures here. Believe me, if you can't figure it out from MY photos, then you'd better pay someone to do the job. It's self-explanatory...

The following pictorial identifies and explains the installation of the Freedom Designs Strut Tower Brace. There are several designs similar to this that are less expensive but this may help you with those installs too.

Entire time is about 1 hour, not counting the mod to the mounting bracket for the turbo model. This strut tower brace will significantly stiffen the front end of the convertible PT, helps reduce understeer going into corners, reduces body shake and yaw. Really made a huge difference on my PT.
