Strut Tower Brace for Roush TVS2300

Wondered what you guys are running as a brace over the 2.3L TVS2300 Roush SC. Post pics if you got them.

Re: Strut Tower Brace for Roush TVS2300

just check out my garage bud. I am running a whipple 2.3L which essentially requires the same setup and I am using a steeda strut tower brace runs a little over 300 bucks.

BMR has one as well for $180. Benefits over one or other?

Re: Strut Tower Brace for Roush TVS2300

BMR strut tower braces are one of the most cost effective ways to improve handling on the the new Mustang platform. We build our braces out of heavy duty DOM tubing and use 3/16" laser cut mounting plates to keep tower deflection to a minimum. Simple 15 minute installation.

This Strut Tower Brace works on 2011+ V-8 Mustangs w/ Boss 302 Intake Manifold.

*BMR STB's do not work with Positive Displacement Superchargers.


This is the description from the bmr page and as it states it won't work with your style supercharger bud. Unfortunately when you go positive displacement blower its hard to find a cheap strut tower brace

Odd that it notes to clears the boss intake but not the blower. Steeda notes the other

"Note: Does not fit 2012+ Boss Mustang or 2011+ Mustang 5.0 GTs with Boss 302". You'd think the clearance on the boss intake would have to be higher. Maybe not.

Looked at garage, must be this iPhone app. Can't see a pic with the new strut installed.

Re: Strut Tower Brace for Roush TVS2300

Its kind of hard to see because it is just a small pipe that runs between the two strut towers. I might have to try and get a close up for you tomorrow. Both braces are meant to clear different things so the blower sits taller then the boss intake but the boss intake i think is slightly wider so that may effect blower strut tower brace from fitting the boss intake. Yeah there is the steeda one and the gt500 one that will clear your blower
