Boss strut tower brace

Definitely sturdier in turns, onramps that used to have to be taken at 45 now at 60 with significantly less body roll.

Will this brace clear the FORD RACING manifold? I recently modified the 4.6L in my 05. One of the mods was installing a FORD RACING intake manifold with Scott Drake fuel rails along with cams, headers, bigger TB, etc. My question is will this brace clear the manifold sufficently without having to use spacers, such as washers under the mounting points?

GARRY

  • Yes it will. If you look at the customer submitted photos it will show a couple examples to help you out.

    OK

    Bought this strut tower brace for looks mainly. My GT has 200,000 miles on it and i was hoping it would tighten up the front end. It helped a bit but is hard to tell unless you're going fast. My car has the ford racing lowering springs so you may notice this mod more if you don't have suspension mods already. it does look great though. It is compatible with camber plates too if you have those like i do. Took 5 minutes to install.

    After installing my brothers sub-par tower brace i decided to get the ford, for the factory look and hoping more superior quality. I was not wrong, it took me 10 minutes in my drive way with zero problems. the difference is noticable right away and look great under the hood. When you first pull it out of the package you can feel the quality and will be glad you went with it!

    Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace

    This strut tower brace looks very good under the hood. I had it installed in about 10 minutes. I have noticed some improvement in handling but I have to push the Mustang pretty hard before I do. That said, when I do push the car hard, the front end seems to be "tighter" than before I installed the brace. I cannot see where it is not a good thing to have: "Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it". It's a Ford part so no issues with fitment. Get one...

    Function and beauty

    Love it. Although, first left hand turn I took, was a bit fast, and ended up spinning the back end through the whole stop light... I've read a few reviews saying they have to push their Pony to feel the difference, that simply isn't true. You can feel the difference the first turn you make, and when you are pullin' some G's around a turn. I'd say, though, get the whole handling package, if you're gonna get this, might as well get the sways and stuff...

    Great product

    The Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace was an easy and quick install. Fit very well on my 06 GT. I also installed the Ford Racing Front Lower Control Arm Brace. That was also a quick install. I can feel the improvement in handling, very tight. Definitely gives the driver a lot more control. I would recommend this product.
