it's because they don't make one especially for the NA and people just try and fit them on with washer spacers and such...if you need one just get the TRD one for a TT and try to make it fit...

When trying to make mine fit, i find that the black plastic piece on the front side of the throttle body gets in the way. Does anyone know what this is, and if so can it be removed?

from my experience, even if you do successfully fit the TT TRD strut brace...the hood will warp when trying to close it...one side of the hood will stay up...i almost shit myself when this happened.

there is a brand called sheepdog from japan and one called f.e.t. that fits perfectly without washers. but i have failed to find them for sale.

just go to eBay... i got one and made it fit with washers to clear the intake.

chigga ... u got the trd one to fit? struts are pretty much struts to me for decent branks.. but the trd one looks so damn sweeeeet... thas why i wanna do it ... even with washers... does this affect the strength of it or could this damage the vehicle?

1jzsupra20.... wat plastic piece are u talking about? some dude i bought my supra from put on a cheap strut bar... and it touches a rubber hosing and it freakin straight melted a hole in it .. thas why i wanna find one made for NA ...

chuboy: There's a little plastic piece, black, looks like a half moon right in front of the throttle body. It has little clamps to hold two hoses in place. It's the only thing getting in my way.

chuboy02: yeah i got the TRD one to fit with a few washers :p using washer doesn't affect the strength on the strut bar at all... just have to position them wisely so the connecting bases of the strut bar don't warp.
