Hotchkis suspension kits

I have a '10 coupe that I've traded for a '11 VR vert. Which I should take delivery on in a week. On my coupe, I've installed the Hotchkis track pack suspension kit , springs, sway bars, strut tower brace, and rear sub frame brace. This kit absolutely transformed the handling. I'm wondering if anyone has installed the kit on a vert. And what their impressions were. I know the vert. has stock strut tower and sub frame braces, but the Hotchkis pieces seem a lot stiffer. Any options from actual owners would be helpful.

I installed the Hotchkis race pack in my g/f's 45th vert, all the factory pieces stay in place underneath, the chassis brace just adds to it and I replace the factory tower brace the the Hotchkis unit. We did a few more mods as well. look up the build for Exflirt.
Huge difference in the handling.
I strongly recomend it.
