dmcampbell, Dare, and blitz951... thanks for your interest. I'd like to see how things go with the first batch installs and feedback. I don't foresee any problems, but you just don't know with a new design until it's out in the field...

With that said, can you guys all wait a little while? I'm thinking maybe a couple months.

No worries. Sounds like a good idea.

Bill,

I was hoping to get some feedback from the first run after people had time to install them. No feedback yet... I did, however, get a chance to install one myself on a 951 with a vacuum brake booster on it. It fit really well on that car. The only downside is that it is impossible to install with the brake booster in place. So, it will add a good bit of time to the install on cars that still have vacuum brake booster.

On v8 cars (which typically go to hydroboost or manual / dual master cylinder setups) there is a lot more room to install the bracket, so it is fairly painless. On my car with an LS1 and BMW hydroboost, for instance, it literally can be installed in 10 minutes.

All that being said, if you and at least a few others are still interested in having me make another batch, I am willing to go ahead. Can't wait for feedback forever! I'll put out messages to those who expressed interest, and then get them made. Once they're made and ready to ship, I'll contact you for payment. My guess is it will take a few weeks to get them made and ready to ship. It will be $105 shipped, and I accept paypal if that works for you. Let me know if you still want one.

Thanks,
Alan

Finally have 4 people interested in these brackets, so I'm going to get a batch of 10 made now!

PM me if you're interested and I'll put you down for one. I'll wait on taking payments until they are ready to ship. It will probably be a few weeks due to the lead times for laser cutting, welding, and powder coating.

I'm thinking of doing a LSx swap in my '86 but have tons more of research to do first (it's been a couple of years since I've had any interest in my 951 and it has sat for two years in the garage). I'd like to get one of these, regardless, since I'm upgrading my clutch.

PM inbound.

Nice design!
Do you plan to make one in aluminum?
I'll take one anyway.
Thanks!

Wow, nice... Lot's of interest all of the sudden. I put in the order for the laser cutter for a batch of 10. Looks like all 10 are spoken for, but let me know if you would like to be put on the standby list in case some drop out (or I can make another batch, of course).

Wasn't planning on aluminum, but I'm open to the idea if there is a real benefit. Curious; what is your reasoning? Weight, corrosion resistance, ...?
