Mounts and braces
 
I just ordered the brake brace and a pitch stop for my 13 Sti. Seeing if anyone out there has done so? Also I came across motor and tranny mount upgrades. Anyone do these? Thx guys!

Another super unhelpful comment here ��, I know a lot of people put the master cylinder brace on and say feel a difference. Why/how does it help? Shouldn't those parts be "braced" already?

Sorry for the slight thread jack

The problem is is the flimsy firewall. If you go to grimmspeeds site, they show you a nice illustration of the brake and when pressure is applied. There is a significant diff. My buddy has one! It's like why upgrade motor mounts. Because the oem ones suck

Could someone same me search time and simply just inform me what a 'brake brace' and a 'pitch stop' are?

Gracias

For those with slow internet that can't research it I will post pictures :D

First picture I circled in blue is a master cylinder brace which keeps the master cylinder from moving when braking pedal is applied
and the second also circled in blue is a pitch mount which is under the TMIC
Hope this helps and sames time.!Thumbs Up

Both are very good inexpensive mods that you'll notice a huge diff!

how much extra noise does that add inside the car?

These are bracing mods that should not effect or add any additional interior 'noise' if I understand them correctly.

The pitch stop can add a little more noise starting the car.
