Default DBW Swap Pedal Adapter

Hey guys, wanted to share something with you. Swapped one of my cars (well, made it more of a factory swap I should say) and I know there are limited options for properly mounting the Drive by Wire pedals onto a GC/GF chassis. So we came up with this!

It's quite nice if I say so myself. Mounts solid, and heel/toe action is great with the placement we have. It is made to fit either version of the drive-by-wire pedals, the metal bracket version (shown) or the plastic one found on later models.

Printed proto on the left, final aluminum model on the right.






What are your thoughts? (other than the obvious, "hey should have done this years ago!" )

I can't discuss pricing/etc. since I am not a vendor, but these are now being sold by a VERY reputable swap-related shop here in Southern California. I'll let them advertise in the appropriate manner.

If I am reading your post correctly, you have a GD chassis and are putting another pedal into it? These ones were made for GC/GF chassis with GD pedals.
PM for vendor/payment info. I don't want to turn this into a FS post per forum rules

bump! Hope this can come in handy for some swap folks. I know it's a lot safer than what I've seen people running, and a lot easier than other options like cutting/welding brackets and firewall pieces.

If the vehicle is cable throttle fore example MY02-MY05 WRX then an adapter is still needed. Subaru makes one bracket from a Baja, Subaru P/N: 36020AE130. It would be interesting to see how fitment differed.

Actually part of the reason we made these was because apparently the factory one is no longer available.
The other, being that pedal placement wasn't the best. This one really does feel great (heel/toe spacing). But we'll leave that to the end users to judge.
The number of swaps I've seen where the owner was driving around with some make shift setup or just one bolt being used.... is scary. I wouldn't want my pedals going anywhere!

That's good info, that's why I wondered how the fitment would differ.

Yes, thank you for sharing.
There is pepsi and there is coke, to each their own
The one I have shown above is also considerably cheaper, and again was designed with pedal placement in mind as well as adapting the pedal over.

I meant no disrespect. Just spreading the word. Its been a hard road trying to find a solution for a small niche. But as you bring out the popularity will grow because the 2.0 is only becoming less and less available.

I wish something was around for me a couple years ago.

I swapped my entire car (dbc bugeye) into an 04 STi (dbw) and ran into the pedal issue.

I ended up drilling out the spot welds on both pedal brackets and welded in the dbc one on the STi.

Exactly what this piece would make people avoid having to do!

No problem
I have a couple extra pieces from overrun (just in case) but once those are gone iWire will be the only place that has these in stock. Brian is the guy everyone should trust with their swap needs anyway!

I want to adapt mine, but want to maintain the original position. An "improved" position for "heel to toe" action is not required on my car. I may attempt building one from some steel plate, similar to the unavailable oem type.
