Why didn't Ford do this?

Took 15 minutes to install and the difference was incredible. I hated all the body roll that the 2012 V6 had.This tower brace has significantly reduced body roll and handles so much better. Best mod I've ...

Will it fit over the Midwest Auto Gear V6 Plenum Cover? I have a Midwest Auto Gear V6 Plenum cover installed. Will this STB have enough clearance to fit over the cover?

Gunjin Year: 2008 Model: V6

  • Looking at the pictures the 05 model V6 the intake plenum is pretty tight to the Strut brace. With the Midwest Plenum cover it is going to be even tighter, it might not even fit. If that is the case, you might be able to make it fit if you got new motor mounts to lower the engine block slightly but that may be more work that you are looking for.

    Thanks to all of you past reviewers - your requests have been answered. The bag containing the instructions now has 8 black washers inside. It's a very nice, quality piece; very sturdy with a thick black coating. Looks great and performs well. Installation was pretty simple and straightforward, although I have a V6 and I found that I had to turn the coil pack end of the #4 spark plug wire to clear the bar. Then I rearranged the spark wires for #'s 4-6 at the 1st spark plug wire clip to allow the #4 wire end to stay where I rotated it to.

    Easy Install

    This is my first upgrade I've done to my '13 GT. Easiest install ever; mine even came with washers! Shipping was right on time. Thanks American Muscle! I will be buying more from you in the near future.

    Tight Front End

    This Strut Tower Brace makes a huge difference in how my baby GT handles. She is tight and hot to drive around corners now. The steering is not too responsive but 1000 times better than how she used to be. She loves corners and bumpy roads now, yeahhh you dont have to worry about those front end floating off the lane into the other when it hits rough patch on the road. Installation was a breeze, fitment was perfect, no problems at all, 13 mm deep socket ratchet is all you need. Got the brace installed in less than 10 minutes and drove for 2 hours right after. Shipping was quick and the price is perfect. A Must have suspension upgrade for your Stang.

    First and Best Upgrade

    Just bought a new 2014 Mustang V6 grocery getter and was a little disappointed with the weight distribution and body roll. For the price and quick installation, this was the best modification I could make to help firm up the nose of the car. It does the trick and is indeed noticeable. You could also upgrade the sway bars or lower the car, but start with this cheap and quick solution, plus looks good under the hood. I recommend the product!

    Nice looking piece, a little work needed.

    After looking at original braces i settled on this nice looking aftermarket piece. Installation was a breeze ,15 minutes tops. Only downfall were the holes are oval shaped and supplied washers if not centered perfect are tighten down into the holes. My only wish ,thoughts, is that the brace came with "smaller" holes for a more "exact" fit.

    SR Performance Black Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT, V6)

    This strut bar is definitely the best bang for the buck. I have been a Kenny Brown fan for years and this keeps up with performance and built quality. The instructions are not really needed and they also don't include any information on the included washers. Take barely any time to install and right away you notice a big improvement over stock form. The car handles better, feels more solid and you really know that you have just installed a new part. I couldn't be happier! I chose this bar over others as it had the full 4 bolt per side mounting allowing for the most contact and rigidity possible.

    Won't fit

    I judt received the Strut Tower Brace for my 08 Mustang GT with Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger. I could not find a photo with this Brace but saw plenty of superchargers with it on and figured it would work. I also looked at the questions and answeres and could not find anything there also. Well it doesn't fit. First of all it hits the Coil cover. I tried shimming it up but by doing that, you won't be able to close the hood. Hopefully I can get my money back and get one that fits.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      You can absolutely send this back for a refund, no problem at all. I'm sorry you tried it and found it didn't fit properly with your E-Force SC. We do carry the BOSS 302 Brace that should clear without any issues. Give us a call so we can take care of this for you!

    Nice product. Easy to install. 15 minutes max. I drop a nut down into the frame but it landed just perfect to retive. Keep an eye and hand on those nuts, LOL. Looks great and I have noticed that the front end is tighter. Thanks again American Muscle. Love my 2013 GT!!!
