Shock tower brace and engine brace

Postby BrianM302 » Fri Aug 14, 2015 7:58 am

I was recently looking at getting the harder engine braces and then I saw the 2 point shock tower brace below it. I was wondering if anyone has tried to use both these products together I know the engine braces says it won't work with most and was wondering if maybe this was an exception. Sadly I didn't get the stock 3 point brace cowl so I was just looking at getting the 2 point. Thanks for any information.

The engine brace does not fit neatly with any of the shock tower braces. I have not tried it with that one in particular but I suggest assume they will not play well together without modification.

thank you Brian. I will probably get the engine braces when I get off work then. but one last quick question... do the braces require any drilling or are they pretty much plug and play for the most part besides taking off a few nuts?

The braces are bolt on, drilling not required.

Brian, do you run an FSTB when on the track? If so, which one?

Our Yellow NC on the front page of the site that we recently sold had a custom made shock tower brace, it had to be custom to fit the unusual motor install on that car.

My Supercharged Silver 2007, also on the front page of the site, does not have shock tower brace because none fit with the install in that car either and we didn't make a custom one for that car.
