To prevent it you could have put a master cylinder brace (grimmspeed works well). I would still install one after the firewall is re-welded.

You could do it yourself but you have to remove the entire dash to weld it in the correct spot.
Ah...that explains why i heard a bang noise when i was driving home today. So its covered under warranty?

Would it be bad if i still drove it like this for a couple of days?
