FS: RSR Style Engine Crossbar in Titanium & Stainless

UPDATE 11/4: Updated the design to make them identical to the RSR crossbar and am now offering Black PVD Finish for the titanium.

Thought it would be cool to make some of these and expand the titanium parts I was offering. The titanium ones are made of Gr5 Ti Alloy and the steel are made from 304 Stainless.

I made 5 of each to start, if there is a good response I’ll make more.
Titanium ones weight in at 1.6lb and the stainless are 3.3lb.

Pricing is as follows:
Raw Titanium: $350
Black PVD Titanium: $400
Stainless Steel Raw: $200
Shipping is $20 in the cont USA.


Message me with any questions and I’ll update this thread later on tonight.

Have you done strength testing to ensure they are good? Specifically interested in the Titanium one. They sure do look the part though, great work!

titanium version big holes
SS version small holes
Right?
Follow up: why did you make with different sized holes in the two different metals? Was it based on design or related to some measured variable? May be irrelevant question I donít know but the part as simple as it is does hold the engine in place.
Iím interested as Iím looking to replace the incorrect version in my car (itís from a cab...) and these look well made, unique and I like to support innovation by individual craftsmen/entrepreneurs on Pelican.

Shawn - no measured variable. Just experimenting with different designs and sizes of holes.

Are the tube holes threaded or do they require nutting of the mount bolts?

A nut has to be used, just like the factory crossbar.

Ok thanks for clarifying. Reason I asked is because the later factory bars are actually threaded. The bars in my former ‘87 and current ‘86 are threaded. When I bought a replacement bar from Porsche in the early 2000s it too was threaded

Great job fabricating these. They look great

Made some revisions and am now making the 304 Stainless version identical to the titanium version. First post is updated with current photos etc. I have only a few Titanium left from this second batch, so if you want one jump on it ASAP.

I donít believe it will work for a 993.

Per references to difficulty in removing the thread-in bolt on later crossmembers. Many of those threaded crossmembers have been compromised/bent due to attempts to loosen the bolt without an adequate means to counter-hold the threaded end.

It has been suggested to remove the internal threads, then use a through bolt, washer and nut as in early engines.

Correct, itís much easier to use a nut with washer and have a bit of play to line everything up.

Received my titanium bar in black today. Extremely well made and so light! Perfect area to lighten up the car a little.
