Developed and designed at the very beginning for the Swift GTi racer and hard core enthusiast, this brace has quickly become a hot seller amongst the metro, sprint and firefly owners. Often copied but never replicated, this brace will tremendously increase the rigidity of your unibody. Most people are paying big bucks to have their car perfectly dialled-in, only to have their alignment·messed up at the slightest pothole on the road. If you want better control over cornering, braking and acceleration, this brace is the way to go.


I do not have it installed on the car yet, so my review is going to begin with what I see so far. The welds all look perfect and the quality of the product material is superb. This aluminum brace I got is very light weight, but it's construction looks tough. The brace also came with needed hardware (longer bolts for rear mount) and detailed installation instructions with pictures.

In case some of you are wondering why this part is needed, that is because it stiffens the uni-body at it's weakest point to prevent flex. This is especially important if your Metro/Swift has any rust issues or if you race your car.

As soon as I get this installed on the wife's 96 Metro, I will continue my review of the Turbine Tech Frame Brace.

He's right. The transmission is not relevant. The only difference is that you will probably have to remove the lower section of the heatshield in order to prevent rattles against the brace.

I installed a slim line cat :-/ to avoid clearance issues.

All depends on how snug the header runs. :hmm
