Well I guess I answered my own question, this is my spare one, with OE bushes in it, she's bent to buggery!



From an XT so its not like its hooked a boulder or something - definitely needs strengthening!


The 'added after MY series 'Stiffeners'' are a mere cosmetic joke!




Gonna have to put some flat bar top and bottom or something, make an I beam out of this thing...

 

And yes, according to part numbers, the XT6 one is different:

 

 

I wonder whats different? Gauge of the plate?

Notice that they all seem to be bent the same way, probably has something to do with the way diff is mounted & the amount of torque that is applied through it ... ;) 

You might be chasing your tail a bit here though as you strength one bit, may have to compensate / strengthen in other areas as the load is transferred to things like the mounting points on chassis / floor ... :blink:

You can get 'open seam' round tube / pipe, roll / bend it to the required shape and then stitch weld it to top & bottom flanges ... :)

OSCIR-01.jpg
Not sure what size or how thick to get it though ... :(

Try here : http://catalog.johns...seam_tubing.pdf

Add : Thinking about how the forces act on the bar, you'd want to increase the torsional stiffness at right angle to bar with an extension of your 'T' shaped beam, into a stronger overall triangulation shape - so something like this ( in Plan / Section ) :

 

                  | |                                                                          o ,

o------------[__]------------o                                                         |    o
  ````~~~~~~~~~~~~````                                                          o '  

 

Bit rough, but you get the idea ... B)

 

P.S. : Other option is to just butt weld two together ... :ph34r:


Cheers, Bantum ...

20883923329_45ca365bae_b.jpg
 
 
 
 
so I just ordered these EJ22T oil jets brand new from the dealership which if I remember right they couldn't be sold at the dealership which is a myth !.. also got the JDM STi quick steering sticker for my Leone.

out of japan I finally found one of these rare STi 6mt Short shifters which was a task and has the serial number right on it from STi factory.

Do you have the part number for those squirters? I've looked before, and I didn't see them listed in the catalog. But with a part number, they certainly might be available.
