    This is coming from an observational point on, so take it for what it's worth, but the DSE unit appears thin and flimsy in the web picks. The ATS bracket is 1/4" thick. I agree that it's expensive (overpriced), but it is a GM designed piece that ATS bought the rights to. Maybe that's why it's expensive-- gotta pay back that purchase :)
    If you go w/ the ATS piece, do it soon- I don't know how much longer Tyler will be running ATS, as he is no in SoCal, working for Anvil Auto. It took me three weeks to get mine.

    Good advice. I better pick up the better designed ATS piece quick.

    ATS here also. Expensive, but worth it.

    ATS as well but expect it not to be a perfect fit. the angle of the dangle is wrong mine so I am going to have to either shim the clutch master on one side or pull my brakes and everything to bend the bracket some!

    I'll make sure the angle of the dange is setup before I bolt up the booster.

    If you can wait a few days, I will have an extra one that I can give you a good deal on one. PM me for details.

    Chris,

    I will be second in line for the bracket you are pulling. I have a nice piece of 1/4 in plate waiting to become the bracket but I have, thus far, totally chickend out on my T56 swap. I am scared that I will never get it done!

    Thanks and if ZedZag speaks up/pays up first. . .I will fab mine out of this $4 piece of steel!

    Brent
