Default Carbing Strut tower bar with master cylinder brace.

I got this through a group by at Boundary Engineering. There's no way I can get this in my car without major surgery due to wastegate placement.

Still in the original packaging.

$288 shipped.

Paul, why won't this fit with your wastegate? What's your setup? I'm interested since you're a local guy.

I was hoping to squeeze the bar between the top of the shock and the wastegate, but it's not going to happen. That pic was pre-EDFC servo so there's even less space now. I'd have to cut and reweld the bracket for the master cylinder brace so extensively that I may as well just weld up a standalone brace.

Let me know. I'm just off Connecticut avenue in 20853.

(why does everyone here think my name is Paul?)

EDFC = Electronic Damping Force Controller

Shame about it not fitting, that's a really nice brace. GLWS.

How about $200 bux?

More importantly--- what are those fittings that you're using for your solenoid lines and where did you get them?

Correct, the trade name is push-loc.

$200 is a about $50 low.

I thought this had sold so I didn't follow up on PMs. If you're interested, make an offer. I can ship today.
