The item came with a few chips in the paint and some of the washers provided with the hardware were rusted. The install took about 1-1.5 hours and I had to do a little cutting and maneuvering with the intake (also a BBK product) but made it fit. Once installed though, the handling is tremendous. It makes contact with the top of my plug wires which I don’t like too much, but for the handling gains I will most likely keep it installed.Helpful (4)

Well constructed and nice looking
Well it is going to take some work to install this, it seems my engine config is a little too modded for this to fit without fabrication. I would say with a stock setup you will be fine but I had no way of knowing the problems I was going to encounter with this bar, this is not a fault of the design or manufacturer, it is the setup under my hood. The motor has taller mounts, a spacer for the intake and a large performer intake. The main issue is the bar hits the distributor. Again the product is as promised. I just did not know much about these and bought a heavily modded car. I will get it in there but it is going to take some math, fabrication and time. That is the fun of cars though. All in all it is a great product for stock applications.Helpful (6)

Tighten that loose front end up with this brace
I was hesitant about buying this brace because I didn't think I was going to fit right being that you have to drill holes. but after all was done the results are pleasing. You'll have to have a friend there to help and takes about an hour and a half. The only problem was the oil cap is kind of tricky getting off because the bar is so close.Helpful (6)

Bought this strut tower for my '91 LX convertible and not disappointed. Fits great and has virtually eliminated the flex in my car, handling and suspension are much improved!Helpful (6)

Must have for handling!
Installation was not hard at all. Just new some drill bits and a power drill and your pretty much ready with basic tools. The handling improvement was quite noticeable and I truly recommend this before any suspension upgrade. Fits nicely and all around awesome!Helpful (5)

Does this clear the Edelbrock performer rpm II intake?
I have the Edelbrock Performer 5.0 and didn't have a problem at all, I don't think you'll have any problems with it. The results are noticeable as soon as you put it on and drive it down the road

The BBK Strut Tower Brace was designed around the basic shape and dimensions of the stock intake manifold. Designs that deviate too much from this basic outline might not fit well with the brace. However, it is difficult to determine all the myriad of possible combinations that will and will not work with the braces.
While most Ford parts can be used across different makes and models, we can only confirm that the BBK Strut Tower Brace will fit for 1986-1993 Mustangs.
I seen your question and decided to browse online and look at images of BBK SSI intakes and found quite a few with the BBK gripp brace on them, so I don't see a reason why it wouldn't fit. Good luck and enjoy the world of differences it makes in the handling of your car
