APS Tough Boy Strut Brace

In order to improve the engine's breathing ability and deliver balanced air flow distribution to all cylinders (in high horsepower Naturally Aspirated and Forced Induction applications), the plenum takes-up the region where the stock strut brace is situated.

To solve this issue, APS has engineered a cross brace that picks up the stock strut brace mounting points and ties those points with a tough and rigid beam - delivering the optimum amount of bracing between the two strut towers without undue stress that can lead to stress fractures.

The APS Tough Boy strut brace is a direct bolt-on and rose-jointed system that is delivered complete with every nut and bolt - for easy installation.
