Dowel Pining the Case Worth it?

I'm unsure if I want to dowel pin my 3.2L case, does anyone have any feedback on this issue and what are the primary benefits of doing this other than prevent flex or movement. I'm only looking to build my engine as a street performer and occassional track runs.

Thanks,

Alex

This is a great mod for Mag case engines and high power race engines. Since your engine is neither I think it would be a waste of money.

Mag cases can use this, but yours does not need it. I am friends with a guy who has most likely the fastest 3.2 based engine in the country and his is not doweled
