Do I need the tunnel cut out at all when reinforcing? If so how much? If I'm running 8's and 12's I'm guessing I need to, when I'm locked up?

I think 6" usually does the trick, it definitely depends on what you're doing with the car though, height wise of course. Make sure you add a little bulk to the bottom middle of the frame even if you're only doing an inside outside strap!

ya, usually you cut up until a few inches away from carrier bearings mount if ur building a hopper...if ur running something like 14's or lower about 6 to 8 inches would suffice... just make sure you reinforce the bottom of the tunnel that was cut though....and box it in like u see in the picture.. so that even though we cut a section out its still boxed in

heres the x frame we did for a hopper you can see how much of the tunnel was cut out.. the vehicle belongs to 41chev here on layitlow and just took 1st place at the majestics picnic
