COBRA Strut Tower

Is there a strut tower brace made to use with the 96-98 Cobra's with a round, JLT type cold air intake?
-BBK's CAI is beautiful but we all want the best of both worlds. I can't sacrifice loosing any more chassis stiffness, no matter how significant, especially with a convertible.
-Somebody may have to research a bit and read through the lines where possibly a 94-98 strut tower brace listed for a supercharger may function well in regards to clearance over a JLT cold air intake. Something like that, anyway.??

I'm not aware of any 96-98 Cobra strut tower brace's for the JLT CAI unfortunately. Your best may be to take a regular strut tower brace and have a speed shop custom fit it to your Cobra. Then have them powder coat it for a clean finish.

I wish I could be more help! I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

How about the AM garage start swapping strut bars from know cars that have CAI clearing, super charger clearance, type bars from same Mustang generation coming off of engines that need high clearance also in stock form.
Example: Using a Mustang GT strut tower brace to clear a V6 with a CAI put on. ect..???? Doable?

robb15033,

Could you clarify this a little more, please? Are you looking for clearance measurements? I believe the v6 and GT's used the same strut tower bar for 94-98, but I'd have to double check that. You're only interested in the clearance for a 96-98 Cobra intake manifold and JLT CAI, correct?
