I have a 2019 Daytona 392 that I got the mopar front tower brace for. Well I'm Leary about drilling on a brand new car and from what I read it seems to be optional. Also it says torqued down to 30 flbs what if I don't have a torque wrench? Is tightening it down until it feels right ok?

You can get a torque wrench from Harbor freight for about 10 bucks that will put you in the correct ballpark for torque. Drilling doesn't hurt your car for something like this, but take the time to paint the bare metal with a rust inhibitor.

Places like Advance Auto Parts and Autozone often have "free" loaner tools.
You pay a deposit when you borrow the tool, then when you return it, you get your deposit back.

or like Stevens says, you can pick up a cheap torque wrench at Harbor Freightl, Home Depot, or Lowes. If you have the time, you can even get one from Amazon.

good luck
