I'm sure there will be some rude comments surrounding a GT strut tower brace on a V6. However, I really don't see the problem with it! It's about functionality and structure, not what logo is stamped on it!

If you'd like to avoid the flaming, we can definitely help you out with a Strut tower brace that doesn't say GT. Please let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266.

You can put a decal over it or make a plate out of aluminum.

From all indications and posts that I've read, a GT strut tower brace does not clear the upper intake of the 3.7 V6. You need the Boss or V6 tower brace.

Good Luck!

I like the Boss 302 one the best.

My Personal choice was the boss, It fits perfect, looks great and is one beefy piece of Aluminum.



Just remember when you do get one to be very careful when installing it. The studs will snap off if you try to get the nuts too tight. Just snug the nuts down until they stop. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THEM>
