    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

    Doug

    • 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

    HaroldB

    • 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.

      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.

      Easiest improvement to do

      You don't need to be a mechanic to install this. Takes a few minutes to install and you're set. Depending on your setup, you may not feel the full effects of the brace. I have a stock suspension setup, no track package as I felt I could do my own setup when the time came, for the effect I wanted. I have the 18" premium wheels, so not a super firm ride nor really wide tire patch. I've had my Mustang GT for a year now and I drive it all year, even in the winter. With the above said, this simple addition really brought the handling of the car around. The car still dives and squats but it does so squarely, in relation to the front. Driving in the rain it feels more planted. When crossing rutted lanes it induces more confidence with almost no feeling of the steering wheel hunting for a track. All Mustangs should really come with a front strut brace. The logo looks great, and I was pretty surprised at how light it is overall. Quality construction and finish, I'm pleased. If you've already done spring and shock upgrades, you may not notice a huge improvement but after doing this on a stock setup I'd say it's vital knowing all that vague road feel felt in the steering wheel was the chassis flexing out of parallel. If that's not a reason to get a brace like this one, I don't know how else to motivate you.

      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
