    Improves Handling, Reduces Flex. Reduce unwanted chassis flex and improve the handling of your S197 Mustang by installing a Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace. The parallel beam design of this Strut Tower Brace adds additional strength to make your Mustang handle like it is on rails.

    Tubular Construction. Ford Racing manufactures their Strut Tower Brace from strong tubular steel in a parallel beam design to keep your front end from flexing under the monster torque of your motor.

    Impressive Styling. The Strut Tower Brace is completed in a classic black powdercoat finish for durability, and features a stainless steel "Ford Racing" emblem for impressive under hood styling.

    Application. This Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace is designed to fit the 2005-2010 GT Mustangs

    without the engine dress-up cover installed. It also fits the 2011-2014 GT Mustangs

    with the engine dress-up cover installed.

    Technical Note. The Ford Racing Strut Tower Brace does not fit V6, Supercharged GT's, Shelby GT500 or BOSS Mustangs. Not compatible with BOSS 302 Intake Manifold or the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold.

    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 fit with a ford Racing intake manifold on my 06 if I have a lowered K member

    • This Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace is not designed to be compatible with BOSS 302 Intake Manifold or the Ford Racing High Performance Intake Manifold so we would not be able to confirm its fitment. Many enthusiasts have used this brace with a Boss 302 brace which is taller than the factory manifold, however, this may have required some modification which we could not verify nor recommend.

    Help please I have a 2008 Shelby Gt V8 4.6 with a keene bell supercharger. I was told this strut brace can be modified to fit with the Keene Bell supercharger. Is this accurate or can you guide me to a strut brace that will fit.Thanks

    • Hey Harold, We do not have the dimensions of the Kenne bell supercharger so unfortunately we would not be able to guarantee fitment of this strut tower brace. And as far as the others that we carry there isn't one that we could necessarily recommend that would fit the Kenne bell.

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

    • 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.

      Instant success. Out of the box and on to the car 15 minutes .....Done. Stiffened up the front end of my convertible immediately. Great product!

      Glad I Got It

      The photograph does not do justice to the strength of this brace. It is hefty! I was pleasantly surprised at its weight. I first checked that it fit over the bolts with the nuts in place...perfect. Then off to Ace Hdwr to get the necessary 13 MM (Deep) socket I lacked. Installation was quick and easy for someone with my limited skills. There is some contact with the under hood insulation but the hood still closes easily. Handling improvement, if any, remains to be tested. But the coupe front end is already pretty solid. I DO like knowing it is installed!

      Quality Performance

      Not only does this look great under the hood the extra stiffness to the front end that it provides was noticeable immediately. I installed this on my 2008 GT California Special, the plenum cover required me to place 1/8" spacer washers under the brace to provide some clearance.

      didnt fit at first-looks graet in the end

      make sure you check with other pepole if they had issues with fitment ,i had problems with the correct hight and clearance(had to put shime ) had to use hydrulic press in order to fit into the engine bay. so this 10 minute work (as climed) turn into more then an hour.

      FRPP strut brace is nice!

      Very well made, gorgeous powder coat finish, perfect fit. Firms yp the front end - can feel a difference when coming down a sloped driveway. Packaging by FRPP is not great. First box arrived with a hole and the end was damaged. AM swapped it out immediately upon receipt of pictures. Second box was beat up but the brace survived unblemished. FRPP should protect the ends (wrap them) and put some protective paper wrap on the brace for shipping. That's my only complaint. Nice addition that provides benefit and looks hood when the hood is up. Great customer service from AM, too.

      Nice piece, excellent fit and look but not a huge handling difference. Set your expectations correctly and you'll be stoked. More minimal design looks nice if you have customized engine covers!

      I bought this with fairly low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The car felt much more planted and stable when I hit harder turns. Installation was easy, 4 nuts and 15 minutes of your time. I recommend this product.

      Great looking tower brace! The "black powder" coat really looks awesome and matches the rest of the engine bay very nicely. Very easy to install. Haven't noticed any handling improvement yet... but, it sure looks "cool"!

      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.

      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.
