Best bang for the buck is turn in concepts it's only $60, doesn't have the cool logo but it works just fine.

I do like the Perrin designed one though but can't say for sure it would fit on an auto. Maybe they can confirm for the auto guys?

I have a Perrin and the thing is wayyyy overbuilt. It's fairly heavy but is a very nice piece. I do like the red bolt cap on the Grimmspeed though. You can't go wrong either way. Both will get the job done.

They did a group buy but very few of us got in on it, they could have been even cheaper.

Got a $60 beatrush brace. Buy the cheapest one you can or the one that suits your engine bay best. Functionally there should be little difference

I mentioned it on NASIOC, but got a warning for doing so here. *Shrug* I tried.

My bad, been really busy. I did it just took a little work to get the front bolt started. You need a small 10mm ratcheting wrench to get in there to it.

It prevents the master cylinder from moving when the firewall flexes under hard braking or something to that effect. I didn't have a problem with pedal feel stock but i guess it's a little better.

It was before they were a vendor here, so many people had already signed up for the Grimmspeed one too.

i was debating getting one of these, but i'd like to hear from people who have one if they actually notice a difference.

like how hard do you need to push that pedal to actually flex the firewall? in normal driving does it improve anything?
