That is not a stock hood it has to be the ACS SS9 hood because it's smooth no cross brace like factory!!! Cool brace but you have to take your struts off every time you want it out of the way and to install it!!!??????

No company makes that strut tower brace. That had to have been custom made or it's a DIY

Maybe a stupid question, but wouldnt that be bad in a front end crash? I want my front end to crumple, and that looks like it would transfer energy into the strut towers, and then into the passenger compartment.

I am not an engineer, but it would seem to me that that could be a very real issue.

I am pretty certain that is a custom brace.

As Apex and Oach stated, don't think this would be desired for a DD. Maybe a track car, but again, not an engineer.

The strut towers that BMR, PFADT, Hotchkis and so on make are more than enough for our applications.

I remember that post....but yeah, kinda hard to find it. I think she had pictures of one of these braces on a Summit White Camaro.
