We don't drive like old ladies and don't have a strut tower bar, need or want one. We run faster than the Pro Touring cars. We run faster than a CTS-V race car running slicks. We pull 1.4 Gs on street tires. We do it all without a single chassis brace on factory arms.







Pedders manufactures four chassis braces for the Mustang. We don't make a single brace for the Camaro. We'll let the numbers and videos speak for themselves.

Hmmm mines a 2011 but it was built in 2010 bought it in August of 2010 I paid 189.00 for my brace and installed it myself in about an hour, I'm sorry to hear your having problems with it perhaps if you could post some pix and tell us how and where it doesn't fit maybe we can help you.

Well when did you buy it ? That one guy said that they changed the strut tower starting Jan 2011 for the convert if yours does have the redesigned towers then it probably wont fit. But you might want to confirm that with BMR.

Is there any strut brace configuration, by any manufacturer , that can accommodate a twin screw Kenne Bell 2.8 blower without swapping out the hood? It obviously couldn't be straight over...

Do it yourself its so easy. Impact, drill, vise grips, wrenches and ratchet and a extra set of hands.


Instructions they give are striaght forward with pictures to install the BMR bar

This is the same thing I try explaining to my wife. Did I need to change the springs, sways, exhaust, headers, ect. Well maybe not but I wanted to and I'm having a blast doing it. Also my car now handles and sounds the way it should.
