The Fox chassis is known to be a weak point with the overall car. Early unibody cars just did not have the strength that we have all become used to in today's vehicles. To help tie the car together braces such as the Maximum Motorsports Strut Tower Brace can help.
- This brace is designed for use with the OEM Ford intake manifold and air cleaner assembly. Some aftermarket intake manifolds move the carburetor location forward to equalize flow distribution to all cylinders in the engine. (An example of this is the Edelbrock 2121 intake manifold). When the carburetor is moved forward by an aftermarket intake manifold the air cleaner assembly moves forward with it. This causes interference between the stock air cleaner assembly and the main tube of the MM Strut Tower Brace.
- Some aftermarket air cleaners extend further forward than the stock air cleaner assembly. This may cause interference with the main tube of the MM Strut Tower Brace, even when used with the stock Ford intake manifold.
- Does NOT fit 351 Windsor engine
- Does NOT fit aftermarket distributors/caps with an overall height greater than stock
