    I had a ported eaton installed and tuned yesterday....I'm now making 523rwhp/500tq....is it unsafe now to get on the gas without subframe connectors? Or is it still ok and won't bend the frame or anything? Thanks!

    It's advisable not to launch on a sticky tire even at stock HP levels without them. They should have been mod. #1.

    Ok...I did get in the gas a little bit yesterday to test it out...once in first gear and in 2nd...think that could of caused any damage? I'm going to get subframes ASAP and stay off the gas

    these cars are thin in the middle. like stated above they should be one of the first things done. as far as "if you caused damage", probably not. most of the time you get frame twist when launching hard with a sticky tire. if your spinning then probably not. dont sweat it, get a nice set (mm full length or stifflers full length) and burn them in. coupe or vert?

    No your good it's the hard launches that twist them.
