Ford Racing Intake Clearance Issue's With Ford Racing Cross Brace

Recommended Posts

Hi every one..I'm new to the mustang world per-say..Any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated..I own a 2007 Shelby GT..Looking to add Hp and looks under the hood and keeping naturally aspirated for now..I'm looking to install the Ford Racing Intake, But what I read is the Ford Racing cross brace wont fit over the Intake..Are there any motor mount's out there that would lower the motor low enough so I could use the cross brace..Or is there another brace I could use in place of the Ford Racing brace?..Thanks for your time on this..Coondog

I think this has been discussed in the Shelby SGT, GT-H Modification Tech section. May want to do a search or ask there. There are motor mounts that lower the engine by 1/2" or so . Some have used them so they could keep the strut tower brace with the whipple SC.

As Larry showed - use the "Bullitt" strut tower brace rather than the stock SGT brace. It is still available from FRPP (without the Bullitt ID plate).

Kurgan - are you referring to the SGT brace? The Bullitt brace angles back and is higher than the SGT brace but still clears the stock hood.

 

Yeah the SGT brace. I actually sold it a while back. I'm not really too worried about having a brace. Functionally, I'm just not convinced it's doing all that much good. The FRPP intake is a different story. It does provide some nice gains, but it causes fitment issues of it's own with regards to superchargers, fuel rails, and throttle bodies.
