Will the Type A OEM-ish bar fits authentic RE-Amemiya AD09 hood? Any idea? Thanks!

If the OEM bar fits (which I believe it does) then yes.

I am definitely interested in the type A in Burnt, but I am also in the process of buying parts for my single turbo setup lol. Whats the ETA on when this goes in to production or lasts call for group buy?

OK GUYS!

We just pushed these live on the site:

TITANIUM STRUT TOWER BAR - TYPE A:
https://garagealpha.com/collections/...wer-bar-type-a


TITANIUM STRUT TOWER BAR - TYPE B:
https://garagealpha.com/collections/...wer-bar-type-b



These are being sold as a PRE-ORDER currently. ETA is April - but could be sooner depending on how quickly orders come in.

Normal price is going to be $650 - but with pre-orders we are knocking $100 off, bringing the price down to $550. You only need to pay $225 now to secure your spot and $225 before shipping.

As for people wanting a Brake Master Cylinder Brace for the Type-A - we are going to announce a NEW product - which will be a universal Brake Master Cylinder Brace which will work with this strut tower bar along with others. Sit tight on that.

$275 / $275 equals $550 - not $225 / $225. Maths are haaaard.

Prices are right on the website.

Hey guys!

Thanks for the orders! We have about 1/3 of the 'interest' list that has ordered so far. We're gonna give this a few more days then push into production.

PLEASE have your orders in by March 6th. That's one week from tomorrow, and two weeks from the kick off of pre-orders.

The goal is not to push a 'hard sell' on anyone - but to simply make sure people that DO pre-order don't have to wait *too* long.

All raw material has been cut and bent - it is currently being welded as we speak.




Little bit behind the scenes...

ETA is pushing a little further into April. But we will keep everyone posted with progress!

I've got a tall motor but not a swap. I swapped in a 13bre upper so i'm not sure which one to order. Is it possible to get a dimension of clearance from the bottom of the strut bar to some other point of reference? Perhaps where the strut bar mounts(maybe if you put a level or straight edge on the bar and measured to the mount)?

Aldo, is the Master cylinder brace available on the type A? I didn't notice if it was answered. Thanks!!

If you have concerns over height and want the MC brack - Type-B is the way to go. No question.

The Type-A is staying as-is so it can be LHD / RHD agnostic. We ARE producing a stand alone MC brace that'll work with any bar, including the Type-A.

Yes. Of course.

The Type-A will work with our stand alone master cylinder brace. We have a sample in hand. It will work out nice.

YES! Once we crank through these front bars, a rear bar will be made to match.

We also have a few more titanium goodies coming down the pike.
