Cool! I'd love to see that. I think Strut tower braces are very nice addition to the engine bay, Im definately open for it.

However, why doesn't the one sold right now fit? Is it just clearance with the hood?

Do you have to drop the struts to remove this when working on the engine ? I read the install manual and you have to drop them to install it.

Yes. We had to drop the struts. But it was no big deal. The whole install took about 45 min. And the majority of the time was spent on carefully drilling the mounting holes.

It's hard to believe but the V6 motor is actually higher than the V8 and requires more clearance. The new design utilizes smaller diameter tubing (double tubes vs. one large single tube), placed differently to accomodate the V6 intake manifold. It will also fit the V8 models. Look for this brace to be released shortly.

This is the part that scares most people yet is probably the simplest part of the install. The Zeta platform does not use a fixed upper mount strut retained by a bolt-in strut mount. Instead the upper mount literally "floats" in the strut tower. There is a single nut on top of the strut and a washer that prevents the assembly from falling out when the car is raised. Once you remove the two nuts and lift the car, the strut assembly lowers out of the way making it easy to work on the strut towers. It is important to recognize that the strut mount is self-aligning so your alignment is not effected during this process...

Hah, I learned this the hard way last April when I bought it at C5F took it home and found out it didnt fit. I am excited for this new one... Cause i have been waiting a long time.

We also are working on a strut tower brace that fits the Maggie cars since we have a TVS 2300 on our shop car, and imagine it should be releases in the next month or two.

Kyle,

I have been told a month or two for the last year, I would really be interested if it was true.

Wow, indeed... that was hard to imagine. I thought it was because the V6 have lower hoods lol.

Alright, I'll keep my eyes peeled for this =D.

Thanks for the info,but i'm talking about after it is already in.Meaning,if I have to work on the motor (after it has been installed) do I need to raise the car,drop the strut mount ,remove the STB,just to be able to work on the motor?.
