Default strengthen a uni-body frame?

How would you keep the frame from twisting when you gas it on a uni-body? Do they make a kit or could you weld in some subframe connectors somehow like you would on a full frame? Im ordering my 4.10 gear and im gonna put a good amount of horses in the car so i need to know.
Thanks,
Mike

Sub frame connectors do a pretty good job but the best thing to do is a roll cage. That'll tighten it up real good.
