Still working on that. Apparently these things are pretty difficult to make right.

Default They're back!

OK guys, I know it has been a very long time and I apologize for that. But, I finally have the proper brackets made and available to sell again.

There is a plus side to the long wait... I went ahead and got 20 of them this time. I will pass on the savings of making 20 at a time... these are $89 plus shipping instead of $99.

If anyone is still interested in buying one, please send me a PM.

My plan is to put a protective coating in between the bracket and the shock tower to prevent that, but I need to do a little experimentation with different coatings and how they may or may not affect fitment on various cars, once I get the prototypes.

Bolting to the top of the shock tower was my original concept. The problem is you end up needing a much more complicated assembly of brackets to do that, and in the end I don't think it's as effective structurally because you need so many bends in the metal. It has been done (if you search here and 944 v8 swap forums you will find lots of different versions of this concept), but I just prefer the simple approach.



I don't really think linkage adjustment will be necessary. You are correct that my bracket installs behind the MC, but it is only 0.090" thick. I don't think that takes the clutch pedal linkage out of it's range of travel, but it will put the pedal a bit further from you. I doubt it will be a very noticeable difference, but maybe I'm ham-footed. :-)

Also, as for MC removal, I am hoping that the MC will be able to remain connected to the pedal linkage and hydraulic lines during installation. Hopefully, just remove the 2 nuts, push the clutch pedal in to force the MC out from the firewall, and slide my bracket in behind in, then put the MC back. Won't know for sure until I get the prototypes, but that's the plan.

Thanks for you questions and interest.
Hi. Has anyone confirmed fitment on a 968? Also, what type of coating is on the surface that will contact the strut tower (of the final design)? And the angle of the MC is still retained correct? Thanks for the nice product.

I am pretty sure that a few have been installed on 968's and I haven't heard any issues.

If you want to prevent scratches to your paint on your strut tower, the coating I would use is just a clear silicone caulk. Just a small dab will lubricate the strut tower surface as the bracket slides in. When the silicone sets up, it will also keep it from moving at all when you're driving (over bumps, etc.).

It will fit, but if you have the original brake booster, it will need to be modified a bit, as the brace won't fit under the booster.. Makes install a bit more than 10 minutes too, but still works very well. Here's a pic of the brace sitting on my fender showing how much had to be removed to make it work. Still would do it again.
