The PERRIN Subaru WRX and STI Master Cylinder Brace prevents unwanted movement of the master cylinder, allowing for increased brake pedal stiffness.
The PERRIN Master Cylinder Brace significantly reduces flex at the firewall, so you get solid brake pedal feel with every application of the brakes. This is very noticeable while under heavy braking and even slowing for a stop sign. The difference can immediately be felt after installation.
Your brake pedal is connected to the thin sheet metal firewall which flexes as you apply the brakes. The firewall is not stiff enough to deal with the constant and repeated forces while applying the brakes. The PERRIN Master Cylinder Brace creates a bridge between the firewall, master cylinder, and shock tower, significantly reducing flex in the firewall while braking.
When possible we try to design Master Cylinder Braces in one piece to improve rigidity. The PERRIN Performance Master Cylinder Brace for the 2015 WRX/STI is CNC machined from a large piece of 6061-T6 billet aluminum for extreme stiffness. With stainless steel hardware and an anodized finish, the PERRIN Master Cylinder Brace will look great and last the life of the car, even in the harshest conditions.
The PERRIN Master Cylinder Brace is design to attach strategically to multiple points on the shock tower. This helps reduce flex in the brake master cylider by creating a solid connection between it and the chassis. To further aid in stiffening or tightening up this connection, included is an adjustable screw that allows tension to be preloaded on the master cylinder.

For how simple this is, it makes a big difference on the pedal feel. Much firmer. Little on the PITA to install on an STI due to the fuel pressure regulator being on the same location of the bracket.
Great product, fits great easy to install on 2019 Subaru sti.
great little add on todo when your already working on the firewall doing other stuff. helps the brake feel. great craftsman ship as well. cant forget how fast shipping and customer service is with IIR. Thanks Dane and Josh!
