Will this fit a 2005 4.0L V6 that has a plenum cover? I have installed a plenum cover on my 2005 4.0L V6 and would like to know if this strut tower brace will fit with the plenum cover on. also how much space is there between the intake plenum and the bottom of the brace. Thank you

SilverStang05

  • I'd hate to swear to it, but my '07 GT/CS has a plenum cover & I have about a half inch clearance without shimming. I am considering adding one washer to the under-side of the brace, but I don't think it's necessary.

do any of your tower braces fit a 2006 roush mustang with the factory supercharger

bigblock

  • No, atleast not the ones that go directly across the top of the engine. You would need on that goes from the strut towers to the firewall, but also around the front of the supercharger. You might look into what Roush has specifically for their cars. Otherwise try one of the new Cobras. Hope this helped

Will this require an alignment when I am done? Will this require an alignment when I am done? I ask this because all four bolts are removed from each strut tower. On most of the other braces only two are removed. I prefer this design though since it just look more rigid and actually looks better IMHO. Just want to be safe.

Raxid

  • No alignment necessary after the install of this strut brace. Bolt on and enjoy!

    Great price for a quality item. Looks great and gives my V6 a much tighter feel on those quick turns. I decorated mine with the chrome 3.7 badge also offered by AM. Another winner.

    Easy to install, and does its job

    This was my first suspension related mod on my stock V6, so it was easy to see how the handling improved. On day-to-day driving you don't know it's there, but when pushing harder to corners the front-end behaves better, and there's definitely less push, making the steering more accurate. It's not the most dramatic improvement, but considering the ease of installation and the low price, knowing now the effect, I would buy it again.

    This install took less than 15 minutes and required no relocation of anything on my 2010 V6 convertible. There's good clearance everywhere (even though the instructions said to move something on the firewall). Remove 8 nuts, drop the brace on (it leans to the rear), drop on the included washers and reinstall the nuts. The car used to shake the nose going over bumps but after this install, it feels like one solid unit. It tightened everything up ... nice and firm.

    The fit was weird but worth it in the end!

    I hope theres an american muscle representative having a good enough day to read this but anyways.. This product came in just 3 days for me. I was excited to install it but the tools were in my dads truck so I hit my buddys garage and boy did the trouble begin (and not in a good way) I tried fitting it in on both side at the same time but that didn't work, then the two front sides then the back but the darn thing wouldn't go in! I had to grind the holes some to let the studs slip through, hit it with a mallet to go through and it finally went it. Works great I suppose, I drive with more confidence on curvy roads at higher speeds. Bumps are a joke now. The packaging concerned me a bit since it was just the product box with some tape on it..the black washers were awesome. Since I had to grind down the holes, could that have any effect on the performance of this item?

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      Grinding the holes to make them larger will not affect the performance of this brace. It shouldn't have needed that modification to fit your Mustang unless maybe it had been hit in the past? I'm sorry you had that difficulty with installing, but like I mentioned, the performance wouldn't be affected. If you have any other questions, just give our Customer Service a call and we'd be happy to help.

    Looks Sharp!

    I've had the tower brace on for a few weeks now. Super easy install! Took me about 20 minutes in the driveway. Seems a little stiffer, but it's winter here so hard to really test it out. I like the look it adds under the hood!

    Had to get creative

    Hello fellow mustang owners! I recently purchased the Black SR Performance Strut tower Brace for my 2007 mustang GT. Delivery was prompt and upon opening the package i was impressed with the fit and finish of the product, it looked great. Install: This product normally has an extremely low difficulty level when it comes to installing it, and should only take in my opinion- 30 minutes. **This review will be suited more so for people having difficulty with the bars pre-drilled holes not lining up with the bolts of their strut towers** Upon simply opening the hood and removing the 4 bolts located at the top of each of the strut towers (see directions for proper descriptions) I placed the bar onto the bolts and saw that the pre-drilled holes on the brace did not line up with the cars bolts on one of the Strut towers. This suggested to me that i have a slight tweak in my frame due to some minor accidents in the cars past. Due to the bolts not lining up with the pre-drilled holes by a 1/4" (or about 6mm) on one side of the brace- I did some reading and found a fix. Place a proper floor jack for the weight of your vehicle centered on the K-member under the front of the car. You can use a piece of 2x4 lumber to aid in protecting the metal of the K-member. Use, caution but left the car into the air until the front tires are off the ground. This reversed the stresses of the cars weight and aided in the bar then lining up the the proper pre-drilled holes. Let the car sit for an hour+, then re-lower before unbolting your factory nuts to install the Brace. I saw that this was a fix for a majority of people who have had this issue in the past. Hopefully this will help at least one person who has the same situation. This products function: Upon install, the front of the car seems to handle tighter. This would be a good addition to install with other suspension upgrades. But by itself i would say it cleaned up the sloppy feel of the stock car (which had 82K miles on it) by at least 40-50%. Whenever you encounter a problem: sit back, do some homework, and come at it with a new point of view- you shall prevail. Over all - it made a difference to me, id recommend this.

    Great Item, Now Even Better: Washers Are Included

    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.

    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.
