So she's going to make you stare at it for 2 months? She's got a cruel streak, that one.

If this is going on your 2013, I don't believe it will fit. The 5.0 is taller than the 4.6.

I'm pretty sure the 4.6 has a taller IM than the stock 5.0 and the boss IM sits about as high as the 4.6

Hmm well when I looked it up it was the exact same one I bought, not sure if it has changed or not. Does that not look like the one he ordered?

Well all of our black double bar strut tower braces are going to look the same, just with different bends/heights.

This is why I'm wondering exactly what the part number is, I would be interested to know which one is fitting your 5.0 with the stock hood so we can update our fitment info!

That's funny, I do too. I've been killing myself trying to figure it out.


It sounds like mine is coming from the top of the strut mount.

I'm guessing they're either under or over tightened. Barely snug them up, then tighten in a cross pattern similar to lug nuts. Then torque to spec. Good luck.
