Strut Tower Brace on 2.9 Whipple Supercharged Convertible

I saw this question asked but with no definitive answer. Will the OEM strut tower brace fit on a 2013 Camaro SS convertible outfitted with a 2.9 Whipple Supercharger? I'm about to pull the trigger on the Whipple kit, but need to know if I also need to replace the strut tower brace. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Don't know the part but you'll have to get an adaptor kit for the 2010.

The company that was making them quit. I haven't been able to find an adapter for the OEM brace.

We just did a Whipple 2.9 on a 2013 1LE, and I am almost positive it is the same strut tower brace, and it fit no problem. Here is a picture (we wrapped it in Carbon fiber vinyl and powder coated the ends)

The picture is of a 1LE Camaro we built, and it comes stock with this strut tower brace, like I said, we just powder coated the ends and wrapped the center section of it in carbon fiber finish vinyl.
