Not sure about Wilwood, etc. If someone can send me a part number for a typical Wilwood MC that LS swap guys use, I'll look into that.
Perfecto

Hey Alan,

Sounds like a nice idea. I am braced to the fender using an L bracket, but doubling up might not be such a bad idea. I'm in for one. I might forget about the post, so please PM me when they are ready!

Good idea. A threaded adjuster bar between the strut tower and firewall would account for differences between chassis from prior wrecks or differences in cars. IIRC, Koklen made one that attached to the strut mounting bolts on top of the strut tower.

They will be in the neighborhood of $100 each; more or less depending on the qty I order. So far it looks like only about 3 or 4 interested? I guess I probably need to market them more to the v8 guys.

I said maybe before, put me down for one for certain.

Market them to anyone with a heavy clutch, like a KEP Stage 2.

Now we're talking! Thanks for all the interest! I'm still waiting on the prototypes to be made. Hopefully will have them soon and then will post pics.

I think so. If you don't mind being the guinea pig... Try it out and if it doesn't fit you can return for a full refund.

Brilliant Idea!

I had a stiff clutch on my 968, and it was causing the firewall to flex, until is started to CRACK! The flexing was making it harder and harder to change gears, and eventually the crack created an opening from the engine bay right to my left foot!!

I had to take everything out and weld a triangle in and fill the crack.. what a HUGE pain in the posterior!!

I HIGHLY recommend a bracket like this to anyone with a stiffer than OEM clutch!
