A Reasonably Priced & Worthwhile Improvement
I have a '92 with 123k with the Stage 1 suspension kit set on 2 in Connecticut roads. The car is in very good shape, and I just want to stiffen it a little and reduce cowl shake. I previously replaced the played out stock door bushings with delrin, which greatly reduced the door rattles.

This was my second step. I found it tightened the front end and eliminated a lot of the cowl shake and noise. Big potholes or gaps still shudders the chassis, but I am impressed with the improvement.

For the cost, ease of installation, and improvement, this is a worthwhile upgrade. I am considering the rear subframe brace next. This seems like a good middle ground for me, as I don't want to go so far as the frame rail reinforcements or the butterfly brace.

Helps a little bit and looks great under the hood
Does help just a smidge with cowl shake..but I suspect other problems with my car are the casue of most of the cowl shake...i did have to cleanrce hood to get it to not rub

Not bad, not a miracle
Before purchasing, research I did in the miata community lead me to believe STBs were either a huge waste of money or the miracle cure for cowl shake. I think this one fits somewhere in the middle. Quality is excellent, no bending this sucker. Install was extremely easy (even my '94 with having to re-route the cruise control). My impression after 50 or so miles of test driving on Wisconsin's crappy roads it is a decent upgrade if you have money to spare and are looking to reduce cowl shake a bit with a simple upgrade. It wasn't quite as awesome as the prior review made it out to be. I would say 25% reduction in cowl shake. Did not notice any change in handling, but frankly you shouldn't expect it with a STB on a miata.

great product for my miata
right out of the box the brace looked very nice, took about 15 minuted to install ,it was very easy,i noticed a difference right away as soon as i backed out of the driveway.the car would shake going over the railroad tracks by my house and it seemed like the car would jump over about 4 inches. now it rolls right over the tracks and doesn't rattle your teeth like it used to. the car now goes where you point it, the brace made the car handle a lot better than without any brace, i would recommend this brace for any car that doesn't have one.
