RalliTEK Clutch Master Cylinder Brace - WRX & STI 2008-2014 / Impreza 2008-2011
This product bridges a connection from the pitch stop mount location over to the OE clutch master cylinder to eliminate movement in the clutch pedal and to provide increased pedal sensitivity and strength.
The 2008-2014 Impreza models are notorious for firewall failure issues. The number of spot welds combined with the thickness of the sheet metal Subaru used leads to flex in the firewall that over time will inevitably lead to structural failure and squeaky pedal noises. The repair is expensive and requires pulling the dash and pedal assembly in order to re-weld and reinforce.
RalliTEK developed this brace in order to help prevent this common failure. Forces from the clutch pedal assembly are transferred by the brace evenly to the STRONGEST parts of the pitch stop mounting structure. In order to maximize the rigidity of the brace, steel was used for the entire construction of the brace. Clutch pedal feel is also more solid especially with aftermarket clutch kits with heavier pressure plate clamping force. As with most RalliTEK products these braces are manufactured locally in the Pacific Northwest USA! Quality of materials and manufacturing processes we’ve always been proud to support.
In fact, this brace is made of 1/4" thick mild steel.
Unlike the competition, because of its unique 2 piece design and slotted holes, installation is easy and does not require a lot of technical skills or tools. Watch our installation video and see for yourself!
Due to the nature of this manufacturer failure, the brace may require additional shimming in some very rare cases. Please contact RalliTEK for further assistance if this occurs. This product is intended to maintain, and will not FIX an already damaged firewall.
