As was pointed out, the firewall is pretty darn thin, so even if you did triangulate, there would need to be a brace added to the opposite side of the firewall to distribute the load.

    Didn't Brian Slowe make one that triangulated to the firewall for an L-body a few years back?

    I heard once that Team Shelby would double up the firewall of their race cars to add stiffness.
