Id put a set of subframe connectors on it.

yeah. ive read that the 3rd gens with t-tops have issues on breaking them with a car that has too much torque. frame likes to twist i guess. this is jsut what ive read. would be a good idea to research it and then decide to beef up the frame some.

yes, problems with this f-body and t-tops are well known. Depending on your engine output, you might just be able to get away with a shock tower brace. If you are getting into the 350 + rang you might want to go custom with hte subframe and undercarrage.
