Halo Super Cars Strut Tower Brace


We are pleased to introduce our new Halo Super Cars strut tower brace. This dual 11ga. heavy wall tube brace is fully TIG welded to CNC cut brackets and includes CNC machined tower caps. They come powdercoated gloss black or are available in raw steel if you want to have them painted to match.


3 bolts on top and 1 in each tower side is all it takes to mount this brace in, while still giving you the ability to remove the brace without having to remove your struts.


Unlike most braces, this will fit ALL model years 2010+ and both V6 & V8!


Place your order HERE for the Camaro5 intro price of $259+ shipping($239 for raw steel) for the month of August! Just enter "Camaro5 intro price" in the order notes and your price will be adjusted when processed.

How much clearance is there between the brace and the v6 engine? I ask because I have a 1inch manifold insulator as well as a 10mm plenum spacer.

I don't have an exact measurement on the V6 off hand, but will try and get one, but I'm pretty sure there's around 1.5 inches.

I would appreciate that, those 2 pieces take up 1.38 inches. Also, I would not have engine cover on. Could you measure without the engine cover. Thanks.

Ah, you're definitely safe then, it's about 1.5" to the cover, and it's mainly on the outer edges where it gets closest to the bar. I'll still see if we can't get a V6 to measure.

No it does not match the factory holes. It just requires 3 holes to be drilled on top and 1 in the side of each tower, not hard to install at all.

Could you take a picture of the installed brace head on from the front of the engine bay. I just want to visually see the clearance since it will be a tight fit. Thanks.

Also, just finished our Trans Tunnel Brace that will also allow you to run a 3" exhaust with plenty of room and still plenty of ground clearance.


Tested on our car with air ride suspension to ensure even the lowest of cars won't have an issue.



Normal price is $89+ shipping but for a limited time, we'll be offering a Camaro5 intro price of $75 shipped.

Place your order here.

Just put "Camaro5 intro price $75" in the order notes, and we'll make the adjustment when processing your order.

What's the "net" on installing these? Better handling I assume?

Sorry, still waiting on our V6 guy to stop by. As soon as he does, we'll have it up here.

Yes, it stiffens the body, and reduces flex & roll when cornering.

I really like the style of your products. Do you have any plans on making a more comprehensive rear chasis brace (like hotchkis or lsr)?

Thanks. We are working on a full subframe connector setup that should be pretty sweet when it's all done.

It will not fit over a Whipple. There's not enough space to fit the bars between the supercharger and the hood.

Have not had a chance to try one on a Magnuson fitted car yet.

Well I would offer up my car that has a maggie but I am in OK. Do you need measurements or send a test bar to me?

Yeah, email me at mark@halosupercars.com and we'll get some basic dimensions and if it looks like it might work, we'll send you a bar to try. Thanks!
