What needs to be modified on the drivers side front corner brace to make this fit over the Vortech's air filter ducting?

Hmmm....it looks close to clearing but we have not had the opportunity to test one yet on a Vortech equipped car. I don't want to appear to be a pessimist but it doesn't look like it would clear, you may have to use the 2 point version of the brace. I can't promise anything but if we get enough requests for this we would probably build a specialized version of the 4 point just for this application....

I like the look of this a lot better than the Pfadt one. I assume it'll mount to a V6 too?

We are still looking for a local test car to verify this. The 4 point bars look like they would have no problem clearing but the V6 engine cover appears to be higher towards the firewall so we have some concerns about that until we get to test-fit one....

We will probably make a post once we confirm this. If anybody in the Tampa Bay area is interested in a 4 point brace and willing to drop off their car for a half day, I am sure we could probably do a 50% discount on a brace for you!

It looks to me like the front brace on the drivers side just needs to be reshaped to go over the airbox. Wait, upon further inspection, the air tube just touches the underhood insulation, so there is not enough clearance to go over it. Do you have any pics of the 2 point version?
