PostPosted: Sun Feb 02, 2020 1:59 pm    Post subject: Group buy: Heigo to make a run of OEM 964/993 strut brace Reply with quote

Long story short, I was ordering some strut bars for my 964+993 and came across 2 versions.

1 is the shorter one for the regular fuel tank and the other is a longer one to accommodate the larger fuel tank (which was an option as well as standard on the cup cars). Both struts serve the same purpose but 1 sit a little higher, probably 1".

I was planning to order 2 of the shorter OEM ones while investigating the difference.

https://rennlist.com/forums/993-forum/1177921-oem-strut-brace-differences-i-see-2-types.html

Currently Heigo make the longer one for Gert @ Carnewal but they will not produce the shorter one unless a minimum of 10 orders can be reached.

This is the exact same part as Porsche 96434352970, which is the standard strut brace on all 964/993 RS with the standard fuel tank. Heigo make the same one for Porsche for over 2x the price.

I can probably take between 2-4 myself so looking to see if there are a few others to complete the lot to get Heigo to make a run.

Price is 255 Euros from Gert which is a substantial savings over the ecstuning offering at £475 (https://www.design911.co.uk/pages/productList.aspx?search=96434352970)

Hope we can get up enough interest otherwise I'll have to fork up for an OEM piece.

Thanks in advance, 964 fanatics!


I think once we have enough signed on interest the purchase can be made through Gert@Carnewal directly.

Is the 225 Euro all inclusive ? FVD sell them at 280 Euro, I assume these are the longer ones ?

https://www.fvd.net/de-en/96434304200/strut-brace-964-993-front-genuine.html

I need one for a 993 but I think I'll be needing the longer one.

Yes this is the long one.

The short run currently is not available from Heigo. It will be €255 if there is an interest of 10

Curious to ask why you need a long one as most cars were specced with a smaller tank (70L) unless optioned otherwise or a cup car

not sure where you are getting your pricing from
as Carnewal is still plus 22% VAT on top of the price quoted.

neither of these are the oem short one.

Seems interest doesn’t exist anyway so I will probably just get the Porsche one.

no but it just looks like any other Porsche OEM strut brace. If you take a look at this reenlist link there are both the tall and short ones there, the difference is not very noticeable but it does look different if you look carefully

https://rennlist.com/forums/993-forum/1177921-oem-strut-brace-differences-i-see-2-types.html

The larger fuel tank is around 1" higher than the standard one, so the shorter one will be just the same as the taller one, but 1" shorter.

I would think there is less than 20mm difference. For something that isnt seen whats the point of going for a shorter one?

It can be seen if you don’t want to roll your carpet over it

I just like things sitting flush personally.

I‘m going to get the short one anyhow, oem or Heigo but wanted to see if there was shared interest to save some money. That’s all.

So you will cut your carpet to allow fitment?

^ if I read correctly:

The 'high' one is currently 225 EUR + VAT + Delivery via Carnewal
The 'low' one will be 255 EUR + VAT + Delivery via Carnewal

The 'high' one sits 1" higher than the 'low' one that this group buy is for.


Other than aesthetics, is there a 'performance' benefit between the 'high' and 'low' versions?

Yes thank you correct on the pricing.

I am not the technical expert but I think all strut braces do the same thing. The only variation between them is the design and looks. I guess you cak probably say it’s lighter? Laughing I personally just like things sitting flush.
