        I'm having trouble finding a strut brace. I have a Kenne Bell supercharger and the air intake is to high for a strut brace. Do you know of any strut braces that will fit with the Keene Belll supercharger. I was told this Ford performance strut brace can be modified to fit. Help!!,Thanks

        • Unfortunately, we have not come across any strut tower braces that fit over the Kenne Bell kits. There are some braces that we have seen modified to fit many supercharger kits, however with the myriad of braces and superchargers it would be difficult to say what modifications would be needed for every supercharger and brace, we apologize.

        What is the difference(s) between the Ford Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace (05-14 GT, V6) and the Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace (05-14 V6)? Other than price, I'm not really sure what the difference(s) is.

        • The main difference is that the Boss 302 Strut Tower Brace was made to clear the Boss 302 Intake Manifold whereas the Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace will not have clearance for that intake manifold.

        Will this fit with the procharger supercharger?

        • The Ford Performance Strut Tower Brace (05-14 V6) will have no clearance issues with a procharger supercharger installed as the procharger systems will sit in front of where the brace is located across the engine bay.

            Didn't work out for me.

            I bought this brace to clear a Ford Racing 3V intake manifold on a GT with ported heads and all the goodies. I had seen pictures of same brace with manifold on Bullitt cars. This is after all the Bullitt brace as well. I also have the MRT Bullitt hood. Result: brace did not quite clear intake. For me it required a few spacers(washers) underneath to clear. This made it hit the hood. So ended up not using for my project. For straight V6 application, it will fit perfectly as intake on V6 is higher than GT. GT brace will not fit V6. Not the best looking brace for application in a stock 3 valve GT. IMO the Ford Racing GT brace for 3 valve GT's (Black with stainless logo) is a lot nicer piece. I had the GT brace before I did the heads and intake. This brace is a nice piece for a 3 valve GT if you have the Ford intake cover (silver with "powered by ford" script) and are looking for a brace to clear that cover. This brace will clear the cover and is nearly same color and complements well with the Ford Racing logo on the center plate. The best brace to clear the Ford Racing 3 valve intake is the 12-13 Boss brace but it will require a tall aftermarket hood on 05-09 GT's as it will not clear OE hood or lower aftermarket hoods such as my MRT hood. Will require a cowl or dome hood of some kind. So, for now I have no brace. For performance, these braces work but as compliments to other suspension mods. If you plan on putting a brace on otherwise stock GT or V6 you will not get benefit. It will essentially be engine dress up. You will sooner notice a better tire quality of a higher speed rating or summer only vs all season. Or better yet upsizing your wheels one or two inches, depending on your starting wheel diameter and a tire with a shorter sidewall. This will yield much better and noticeable handling, as will lowering springs and good quality shocks and struts. Something like Ford "P" springs for conservative 1" inch drop and Bilstein dampers. Only at this point does the brace starts to play a role. K member bracing, sway bars and caster-camber plates take it even further if you want ultimate handling. If you are considering a brace on a stock or lightly modified car, you are also better off investing in the rear prior to the brace. IE; You should replace your Panhard bar (get an adjustable one) and lower control arms out back before a brace up front. I would even debate sway bars before a brace up front. If you lower the car and like aggressive acceleration do relocation brackets at same time as lower control arms for better traction and mitigating wheel hop. There's geometry and physics at play where the relocation brackets are concerned. I hope this helps readers. It would have helped me before I bought the V6 brace. I track my car at driving schools and high performance driving events. I have personally done all the mods I discussed to my own cars (two S-197 GT's) and have appreciated the dividends. Follow my advice. The brace is not a priority. There are other modifications (or investments as I like to call them) that can be done that will yield way better handling on the S-197 cars. Regards from Canada.

            Great addition to the package of lowering items. In conjunction with Eibach sportline springs, shocks, struts, camber bolts and BMR panhard bar. Tightened the suspension to just right levels. Looks good under the hood too.

            Looks great, fits great.

            This brace does its job--eliminates inboard/outboard flex at the strut towers. Any drive from my house starts (and ends,) with 12 speed-bumps then 6 miles of the twistiest, hilliest part of Coast Highway 1 in California. With the brace there's noticeably less suspension/body noise on the speed bumps and tire squeal/slide occurs a couple mph faster on turns--especially if they're climbing or descending turns.

            Noticeable Performance in Ten Minutes!

            I installed this on my 2005 Mustang GT equipped with a 2.4L Kennebell Supercharger and Steeda's Mustang Street Cowl Hood. The install bolted on with no modifications or clearance issues taking no more than ten minutes. The extra stiffness was noticed immediately inspiring a more confident ride through all types of driving. You won't find another mod thats faster to install that provides the level of performance than this.

            Wow

            It fits, like a proverbial glove, and it only took me about ten minutes to install it. The last brand X brace I bought had significant interference w/ the ignition/coil . This one misses by a mile. Ford Racing makes it right. Very nice!
