Saleen Supercharger Strut tower brace

Besides the Chicane Brace that mounts between the Saleen charger has anyone found a strut tower brace that mounts over the Saleen Charger and fits under a stock GT hood? How much clearance is there with the stock hood and Saleen Charger?

Here's a link to the Chicane Strut Tower Brace

Strut tower braces donít help a thing. Spend your money somewhere else.

I wish there was but no there is not room for a brace over the saleen. It is pretty tight up against the stock hood. The chicane is the only option right now. We stock them with free shipping and have tried other options but nothing yet that we have had in our shop will fit over the blower. Hope that answers your question.

Thanks. I realize from a performance standpoint the brace doesn't do much. But it is visually appealing to me.

CHE has a height adjustable brace but as stated even though it will go over the blower the hood will hit it. So you would need an after market hood. View the Adjustable Strut Tower Brace<br>Part # CHE7P at http://www.cheperformance.com

This is the second anti strut brace post you've made in the last week. A clear case of strut brace discrimination!
