Plenty of clearance
Bought this for my 1996 Mustang GT. Upgraded to a Trickflow elbow so the stock strut tower brace wouldn't fit. With a little modification and a little welding I got what i wanted. STOCK HOOD WILL NOT FIT. I'm using a Cervinis Type 2 Ram Air Hood and had to notch in a few places to fit.Helpful (5)

Perfect fitment great product
This product is pretty awesome. Fit perfectly and there's very little room for error because there's a little room clearance between the blower and little clearance between the air intake. Noticeable difference in stiffness in the chassis. A must-have for convertibles that make decent amount of horsepower. I would recommend this product to a friendHelpful (7)

Does not fit as advertised
Hello, all. I purchas d this piece on 6 November 17 for an '03 Cobra with a Kenne Bell 2.6 and JLT Next Gen Ram Air intake. The brace did not clear the blower or inlet to the blower, even before I had the intake in place. It may clear other after market blowers, but proceed with caution. That said, American Muscle, as usual, was awesome in taking care of return shipping and refunding the money. I still choose them over any other dealer for my Cobra parts. It just didn't work out this time, in particular.Helpful (9)

Great stiffening of the chasis
Just installed this on my 96 Cobra with an 03 Terminator swap. With a Stock eaton it cleared the blower but you have to drill new holes to mount the s trut brace! Pretty awesome product!Helpful (6)

The strut bar works great! It took me a while to install it but it was worth it in the end. It made the front end much more stable and it's much stronger in the corners! Plus it gives a great agressive look to under the hood!Helpful (6)

Clears Mac cold air
I've had a MAC cold air kit for a few years now. Been getting my suspension in line with sub frame connectors and sway bars and a rear shock tower brace. Only thing missing was a strut tower brace. I ordered the GT style from Maximum Motorsports and the elbow from the TB was getting in the way with the brace. MM told me to put the factory airbox on. WTF? I took a chance a bought this hoping that it would clear, and I was right. Cleared the tube, bolted right up to the car like its supposed to. If you're looking for a brace to clear your CAI, get the Cobra style by MM from AM. Thanks AM!Helpful (10)
Would this fit on a 97 Cobra with 3” Cowl hood. Trying to clear my JLT intake tube.
This would not fit on a 1997 cobra since this is designed to fit only on a 03-04 Cobra.
Would this strut tower brace work on a New Edge Mustang with a 2.1 Kenne Bell with the Anderson Powerpipe intake? I have an aftermarket hood so I'm okay with hood clearance.
We can only confirm fitment with the 2003-2004 Cobra strut towers and would be unable to confirm fitment with your build.
Will this brace clear my 03 cobra with a 2.3l wipple and carbonfiber short ram intake?
We have not tested the Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace with aftermarket superchargers, however due to the increased size, this is not expected to clear the Whipple supercharger.
Will this brace fit my 2002 supercharged Saleen? Or alternate recommendations?
I can not confirm Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace fitment on a 2002 Saleen. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to call or chat in.
Will this Work/Fit on my 03 Cobra with a JLT Performance Next Generation Cold Air Intake?
The Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace will be very close to the JLT intake and may require some spacers to work.
The strut towers are similar from the 2002 GT to the 2003-2004 Cobra strut towers. However there is some slight differences that may not allow this brace to fit.
Hello! Yes, this Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace should work for aftermarket superchargers. Whether they are intake mounted or front mounted it should be a great addition to the handling of the car!
Both will work I have install both of these on cars and you will have to drill holes to install on the 03-04 Cobra have been drill at the factory. I would go with Maximum Motorsport Strut Brace its new and has easy instructions. When you buy a used one from a savage yard you are taking a chance on it being bent and wasting your money.
I don't think it will clear the stock hood. The 03-04 Cobra hood has some height in the center to clear the supercharger. It would be good if you could check a Cobra for it's clearance.
