Clearance of FRPP intake Will this brace clear the FRPP intake on 2010 GT if not what brace will clear the intake.

  • From the description " Not compatible with BOSS 302 Intake Manifold or the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold." It looks like the Ford Boss 302 strut tower will fit.

Will this work on 2005 GT with "coyote" style dress up cover?

Black05GT

  • The Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT) will not work on 2005-2010 GT Mustangs with the engine dress-up cover installed. You will need a Strut Tower that can clear a higher Intake Manifold, such as the Ford Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT, V6), item # 53686, (http://www.americanmuscle.com/boss302-strut-brace-0512.html). This Boss 302 Strut Tower will provide enough clearance for the engine dress-up cover.

Will this Strut tower brace also fit a 2013 V-6, I assume it does but we know about assuming things.

Dirtyrims

  • The Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT) will not fit on the V6, Supercharged GT's, Shelby GT500 or BOSS Mustangs. This strut tower brace is designed to work on the 05-14 GTs only.

    Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace

    I shopped around and decided on the Ford Racing Strut Tower. Not only does the vehicle handle better, the strut tower "color" is conservative enough where it does not immediatle distract the viewer to it when the hood is up.

    Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace

    Purchased and installed on my 2011 Roush Mustang GT Stage 2 in less than 10 minutes. Looks good and tightens up the front end. As others have said, take your time and don't strip or over tightened the nuts. I didn't have any problems installing the brace. Fits perfectly. Kudo's to AM for processing and shipping my order expeditiously, but please wrap your products in bubble wrap . The box my brace came in looked liked UPS dropped kicked it a few times. Luckily they didn't damage the brace.

    Some Improvement from Strut Tower Brace

    This tightened up the top of the structure a little. Certainly worth the money. Installed easily. The Ford Racing emblem looks like a piece of barely readable embossed aluminum, it is not as pictured.

    Brace

    The brace it's self look great, but once installed in my cars engine bay it looks 10 times better. It stiffens up the front end. The down fall would be that you have to take off your engines dress up cover which sucks but still the brace look sweet in the car.

    Have not decided yet

    Unfortunately, the Ford Racing Strut mount brace was a little bit off as far as height. The strut mount brace rested on the manifold intake and the only solution was to place washers or spacers below taking some of the thread away from the bolts. I still have not installed yet. J

    I'll likely never drive my 06 GT hard enough to notice much difference in the handling, but the Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace looks like a million bucks under the hood. Took about 20 minutes total to install. Very Simple.

    Easy to install

    I really like the way this product helped the car. I feels much more solid since I put this on. The only issue was the fit. I had to add a couple washers under the mounting locations so it would clear the Powered by Ford plenum cover on my 07 GT/CS. This may be just an issue with my car as I see a customer picture of someone with the same cover and there appears to be plenty of clearance. I would highly recommend this if you don't had the plenum cover.
