I'm in the middle of a restomod 66. I have a 93 5.0, totally stock, in the car but not running yet. The stock right shock tower brace Won't clear the intake manifold. All the aftermarket braces I have looked at are in the same location as the original. Anybody know of a brace that will work and clear the manifold?

Alex, I’ll make it a true daily double. What is the custom one you make or modify yourself?
The 93 upper manifold is a lot of aluminum compared to the size of a carb’s air filter housing. I hope there is enough hood clearance for a brace to go over the top. You can get design ideas from the 87-93 aftermarket ones.

Mike Maer makes one...a bit pricey, but a good quality DOM piece that incorporates the monte-carlo bar. I have the carbed version myself...good quality work.
