Eliminate Body Flex. Eliminate unwanted chassis flex and body roll in your S197 Mustang with a SR Performance Strut Tower Brace for improved handling. This Strut Tower Brace was designed to fit both the GT and V6 Mustangs.

Superior Construction. Made from super strong, aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly alloy steel to keep your front end from flexing under the torque of your motor, this SR Performance Strut Tower Brace is completed with a bright chrome finish for great under hood looks and durability. 

Easy Bolt-on Installation. This SR Performance Strut Tower Brace is a simple bolt-on upgrade that clears the factory intake manifold including the plastic engine cover and is easily installed with basic hand tools.

Application. This Chrome Mustang Strut Tower Brace is designed to fit the 2005 to 2014 V6 and GT Mustangs. It will not fit the Shelby GT500 model.

Technical Note. This strut tower brace will clear factory plenum covers on 2005-2014 GTs. Some 2007-2009 V6 Mustangs may require minor modifications to assure proper clearance of the factory coil pack boots. Will not clear BOSS 302 Intake Manifold, Roush Supercharger or Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger.

Will this fit a 2007 v6 with a plenum cover?

  • Actually, if you return to the American Muscle site and go to the product in question, you should see a product photo of a V-6 engine with a plenum cover and the SR Performance Chrome Strut installed above it. If appears to fit perfectly. I do not have a plenum cover on my car, but I really like the way my SR Performance Strut Tower brace looks; over my Mustang V-6. I hope this response answered your question...if so...please click on "helpful" below. Thanks!

Will this clear the ford racing performance intake manifold?


Helpful (0)
  • This strut tower brace will clear the Ford Performance intake manifold.


Will this fit over the FRPP intake manifold and still have clearance for engine torque movement? Will it also clear the stock hood? I have the Cervinis Ram Air hood so I'm hoping that will provide more clearance. I have heard some have used spacers or washers to give extra loft over the intake manifold as well.

  • This SR Performance Chrome Strut Tower Brace can be used with the Ford Racing intake manifold, however there will not be much clearance. Unfortunately, this brace would not fit with the BOSS 302 or Cobra Jet manifolds, as well as most superchargers. This brace also should have no issues with clearing the factory hood.


Answer This Question

will this fit over the holly sniper intake?


Helpful (0)
  • We have not tested the SR Performance Chrome Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT, V6) with the Holly Sniper Intake. This strut tower brace seems to clear the factory intake and the Ford Performance intake with no problems, so I do not see why it would not but unfortunately I cannot guarantee that.


Why is this strut hittng my hood when it is closed? I have a 2005 V-6 Convertible and when the hood is closed you can see a ripple where the strut hits it. Not happy right now as it is supposed to fit. yes it is installed the correct way as per the pictures on the web sight. I did not get instrictions in the shipping package nor the washers I see here. Thanks

    Perfect Fit and makes the car feel great

    I got free shipping and it showed up overnight. WOW on the fast shipping for a large item like this. I installed the strut brace in about 20 minutes in my driveway. It was super easy. I love the chrome look under the hood. I have a Trufiber Venom hood and it fits perfectly underneath. I also did not need washers for it to clear the engine. I took a spin around town for about 20 minutes and right away I could feel a difference. The front end definitely feels tighter and more responsive. Overall I give this five stars across the board.

    Stack Racing Chrome Strut Tower Brace

    Looks good under the hood. I can't tell much difference in handling but I don't race the car so I can not say much on how much it improves handling. It does however look very good under the hood and adds a nice touch of chrome to the area for a show car.

    A must have

    This is a must have for any Mustang. Took all of 10 minutes to install. Looks absolutely fantastic under the hood. Handling around corners is definitely better. Not sure why but speed bumps and bumps in the road don't feel as rough anymore either. Stop reading the reviews and just buy it already, you won't be disappointed.

    Noticable in a convertible

    Installed with washers below and above as others had mentioned to clear the plenum cover. I had plenty of clearance on my 2008 and probably did not need the washers. The contruction is quality. It arrived promptly and did not take long to place. I have my car lowered so handling is better than stock, but when I would hit rough pavement on a corner the window shimmy was noticable and the steering wheel would shake. Now that I have the brace the corners are more stable, the shimmy is gone and the steering wheel remains straight. I highly recommend this product, especially for convertibles!

    Excellent quality, looks great, clears plenum cover, and most importantly our gt convertible doesn't get loose and hairy on broken pavement anymore. We are from Canada and American Muscle made the purchase and shipping smooth, quick and cost effective. Thank You!

    Good buy

    Just got it delivered to my door earlier this afternoon. Just loosen up 4 nuts on each side using 13mm deep socket, sit this sucker on top of the strut tower studs, and make sure to tighten the nuts using torque wrench to 25 ft/lb. 1/2in torque wrench is on sale at harbor freight tools for $15.99, can't beat that. Better than Craftsman POS overpriced torque wrench. Looks good being all chromed out and heck yeah, saved $40 over Shelby one. I'd say it's a good buy.

    Chrome strut

    Not only does this part work functionally, it looks great when you pop the hood. Really a stout, heavy duty support. I live around some mountain roads and believe me it really tightens up the front end. I noticed it immediately on these winding roads. Installed easily and fit like a glove. AM's shipping is second to none. Always lighting fast, and I like the tracking info they give you. You can literally follow your order right into your hands. AM's number one.

    I recently put this on and did some driving on tight turns and I definitely noticed an improvement in handling of my '08 mustang. The chrome finish also dresses up the engine nicely. Easy install too. Overall a great add on part which gives noticeable improvements.

    Great for both looks and handling

    This was a great purchase for my 2010 GT. Not only does it look sweet in the engine compartment but you notice the stiffer handling right away. I bought it for the improved handling because it's always felt like the car was a little unstable and this really improved the feel when driving. I chose this one over the others offered because it engaged all four strut tower studs, not just the two inside ones. Fast shipping from American Muscle got it to me in less than a week and installation only took about 20 minutes. Was worried about clearances over the plenum cover based on other reviews but once installed I had about 3/8" clearance above it. Then I was worried it might touch the hood but no problem. Placed a little car wax on the brace and closed the hood and didn't see any residue on the under hood insulation so it should be good. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

    I like the Chrome

    I was torn as to whether to get black or add some bling with chrome. I went with the bling and does it complement my Pony Edition. I also got the chrome tower covers and nuts. I read reviews about plating coming off the nuts. We always cover the nuts with t-shirt material and then place the socket over it. Works like a charm. When finished we discovered a bonus using chrome. It is visible through the vents of the carbon fiber hood. Super cool.

    Great strut brace that fits well !

    I just installed the SR Chrome Strut Brace on my 2005 GT with a plastic intake cover and it clears this without any washers needed. It definitely feels tighter/better over train tracks and over small bumps/driveway curbs too. I just put in a new hood insulating pad a few months ago and this brace does not push into the hood pad - excellent fit and finish and looks great. Kevin

    Wish I had bought this the day I bought my car! Easy install takes minutes and looks amazing popping the hood! Riding on 20s and boy did it like to pull into the ruts, with this strut brace, that nearly disappears and makes the ride much smoother!
