strut tower brace

Just bought mm strut tower brace from am, looked pretty superior from other braces. Did anyone notice a handling difference after an install of this brace?

The maximum motorsports one, it looks like it should clear any intake along with additional engine height because the strut braces are made pretty wide apart

Not after that brace in particular, but they do stiffen up the front end and keep the shock towers from flexing so much, so handling and ride improvements are pretty much the norm.

You guys are talking two different body styles so the fitment is going to be different, just so you know.


WhiteCobra94, You will probably have to fabricate your own with that much height difference.

I have the edelbrock performer intake which sits 1 1/2 inches higher then stock , I have a trick flow 1in spacer to clear my valve covers and I have poly motor mounts that are 1.25 inches over stock, so I'm actually 3.5inches over stock.

I have a 3.5 cowl svo hood and the too of my intake to good clearance is 1/8 inch
