Q. Will the BBK Strut Tower Brace clear my intake manifold?

(part numbers affected include: 2504, 25040, 2513, 25130, 2516, 15160)

A. The BBK piece was designed around the basic shape and dimensions of the stock intake manifold. Designs that deviate too much from this basic outline might not fit well with the brace. However, it is difficult to determine all the myriad of possible combinations that will and will not work with the braces. There are many variables to consider: Do you have after market engine mounts with an offset? Do you have an oversized after market intake? Is there an after market K-member with an engine offset? Any phenolic spacers? With just these few examples, you can see how it can be almost impossible to say what will and won't work, and under what conditions.
 

Q. I want to get a BBK Cold Air Intake and a BBK Strut tower brace. Will the brace clear the CAI?

(part numbers affected include: 2504, 25040, 2513, 25130, 2516, 15160, 1556, 1557, 1712, 1713, 17130, 1717, 1718, 1719, 1725)

A. The BBK strut tower design did take into consideration the routing of our Cold Air kit, so you should have no troubles with the two on your engine.
 

Q. Will the BBK Strut Tower Braces work with the Cobra Models?

(part numbers affected include: 2504, 25040, 2513, 25130, 2516, 15160)

A. Though similar the GT models, the intakes on the Cobra are different enough that our strut tower braces will not fit on them. However on some Cobra models, braces are factory supplied, meaning there would be no need for a BBK strut tower brace.
