Strut Tower Brace


Recommended Posts

I decided I want a strut tower brace for my car, but none of the currently available braces will clear my air cleaner, I recently discovered that SAI made a strut tower brace for the SuperSnake that looks like it might work for me, but I need some pictures from someone that has one, as well as a measurement.

My air cleaner is about 1/4 inch below the lip on the firewall, and I have a KR style hood on a 2012 Mustang. I've attached a picture of the brace I'm looking for.

 

I understand the product is no longer being made, but I'm hoping I'll be able to find one for sale somewhere ( I posted a message in the classifieds section). If you have one of these braces installed, can you please eyeball it for me and see where the bottom of it is in relation to the lip on the firewall?

I came across this STB set-up in a S197 with a 2.8KB, so I grabbed some pictures.........

On a regular production Super Snake FG hood there may be contact with the extractors when using this Shelby STB since it is more rearward under the hood. The KB 2.8 fits so nicely below this STB, my guess is that the 5.4 DOHC has been lowered.

 

The above pictures are mainly to show this Shelby STB and it's fit with a KB 2.8. This STB is also discontinued (I think), but it shows another possible STB option?

I can't use that one because I have caster/camber plates that essentially prevent the use of the outer-most stud plate bolts.
