    i believe it is for reinforcement. Too bad they didnt implement a similar piece on the other side cause mine other plate is twisted from the power my engine is puttin out...

    The stiffener goes on the outside. The new HD bracket is not well depicted in our pictures. We need to update the photos. Otherwise the bracket installation is as shown in the manual and there is only one way to install it. Line it up with the clutch cover holes and you will see.

    it is for reinforcement , you don't need to worry about attaching it to anything.

    So you have a kit with a left bracket stiffener and your right bracket is bending?

    I wonder if europorsche914 has the aluminum tie bracket? That stiffens up the works nicely.

    Tomorrow Jim and I can post some of the picts of the stuff we are talking about. The tie bracket is shown in the picture at the bottom of page 11:

    Shifter Kit Install Manual

    The left bracket is shown on page 9 amongst others.

    Cool, Got It.... Yeah, The Directions And Pictures Both Are Misleading On Showing The Old Plate W/out A Stiffiner. The Only Way I New It Was The Right Bracket Was The Pics Of The Parts Shown In Actual Kit (but Still Unsure, Seeing As To Me It Didnt Seem To Be The Most Cosmeticly Pleasing Way To Strengthen An Also Visual Bracket) This Caused The Confusion. I Know It Will Cause Warranty Issues But Im Going To Cut Off The Angle And Thicken Up The Plate And Looks Like Ill Do The Right Side Plate As Well... Thanks For All The Info!!!!! Im Changing This Design For Cosmetic Purposes Only.. Otherwise Great Design! Infact Square Tubing Would Be The Only Strong Option, Angle Is (really) Strong Though. Ill Just Add1/8'' Stainless Plating To The Outsides... Not As Strong, But Twice As Strong Than W/out..
