    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.

        Is there enough clearance for this to fit over my Roush Supercharger on my 2009 427R?

        • This will not clear superchargers of any brand.

        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.

            I put this on my '06 GT and noticed immediately that the front end was a lot stiffer and more responsive.

            Looks really good

            It looks really good under the hood, i like that it has that little ford emblem in the middle it adds a flair. As for performance i can feel the difference being i diddnt have one in the first place. When i installed this i diddnt have my aftermarket panhard bar in because the last one broke and i put the stock one on but when i throw my new bar on im sure ill feel a bigger difference. Install took like 8 min we used a impact drill and made quick work of it

            Awesome factory look

            Dropped right on.. i thought this was the best looking strut brace out of the bunch and being Ford Racing is all the better.. i cant speak on the clearance of boss 302 or cobra jet intakes, but it has tons of clearance on my stock set up.. havent tracked the car yet, but high speed corners out daily driving have felt a bit more controlled and firmed up on the front end. Its my favorite strut brace..

            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.
