If you were not going with finned covers, yes I recommend it, the fitment is perfect with the OEM cover. But with finned, Im not so sure.

Man, what a sh1t show. Nice work on making something functional Rusty. I've had my Royalty Performance diff brace sitting in a box, has anyone had clearance issues with that?

So after researching more the Bell Brace that Z1 sells will fit the stock or Z1 finned/Nismo finned covers, however if you have a FI or Motordyne exhaust it will not work due to the exhaust piping being in the way, thus requiring modification as illustrated by Rusty.

I was gonna go with RP brace. But they cut out so much material from the brace. I kinda like how the BR brace (oem cover) has 2 mounting points on the subframe to distribute the load.

My Bell Raceworks diff brace fit perfectly on my factory set-up, but after waiting through weeks of excuses from this guy and no indication it would ever be sent, it required having to threaten him with local business licensing authority intervention to get his attention! Heard from others who experienced the same issue.

I saw on Bells site a brace that has a bar attached?
I'm guessing that will have clearance issue with the Motordyne exhaust....
I'm trying to find a diff brace that will have no issues with the Motodyne Exhaust

A little late to the party, but my dealing directly with Bell was pretty good C/S. YMMV

Only way I know of is to get the Bells and have it modified the way Rusty did his. You may want to check him. He was offering to do the mod for some members at one time. Not sure what he was charging. Shoot him a PM

Finally got the OEM diff housing style brace installed - fits fine for me. That being said, I am stock diff cover and also stock exhaust. I also have poly diff bushings and subframe collars on, so the difference in feel might be minimal.
