Default Shock Tower reinfocement necessary - 400 HP+

Recently pulled engine in car to clean engine bay and fix cowl. Don't plan on putting original engine back in but I'm looking at a couple of different crate set ups 400+ HP/Torque. Already beefed rear end and plan on putting disks up front. Also plan on putting in subframe connectors. I'm thinking I should put shock tower reinforcement while I'm at - interested in getting opinions and some suggestions on manufacturers. thanks

Catr is 1970 Fastback. Currently 302

Invest in a 1piece export brace and monte carlo bar. Cheap and will keep the front in in place.

Also, for the towers themselves, you can weld up the seams and do a boss brace. Heres a website on those 2
