Pretty sure the OEM is the thinnest of them all. Most intake pipes will clear a brace of any kind.

OEM came in 1/2" and 1" versions. Smaller version is a joke- I bought one by mistake and didn't even bother installing since I could flex it by hand.

Those OE bars are,...... how should I put this? Worthless. Go aftermarket or fabricate something.

I have that OE Bar installed, think it was the previous owner, or it came from factory, but judging from the looks of it, at that kind of thickness,there is no way that thing adds any amount of stiffnes or something....
i need to upgrade as soon as money comes in, the suspension by the previous owner is so riddicolously hard that its a must upgrade.

Thicker generally translates to stiffer. Although there's also hallow or solid bar and material of the bar to consider. But with our front bias s40/v50, most people agree the RSB upgrade is the item you will notice more difference.

I Like the Look of the Euro Sports - Unit and They usually have a Spring Sale .

It's Not Going to Rust _ You have to put a Small Notch in the Battery Cover in the Back or Grind down the Battery Wire Clamp Bolt - as they are long .. the one sticking straight Up ..
Took 10 sec. on Bench Grinder ..



Found these to better Improvement from : WHITELINE .

Just looked up the EuroSport Strut Brace, looks nice but $56 to ship to Germany, no way!
Found another one at a german dealer -> ls-tuningparts.com
Maybe someone from Europe has that Strut Bar installed?

I found more pictures online, looks like a really beautiful made piece. If all goes well I will pull the trigger on that end of February.
