I ran the 93 cobra intake and MM strut tower brace on my car with a 3/8” intake spacer. Running the stock hood with hood blanket. Using the original bolts that came with my Ford motorsport 93 cobra intake kit. This is with the older non-convertible engine mounts which sit higher than 93 mounts do.
recently redid the motor and needed new valve covers to clear the crane 1.6 RRs. These cleared fine using the same 3/8” spacer
My intake is currently being powdercoated, but that's the combo I intend to stick back under the hood with the MM strut tower brace. I upgraded to new energy suspension mounts, so that's the only wildcard, but they are the lower, convertbile profile mounts, so it should actually gain me some clearance. But if i remember correctly, the STB stuck up higher than the intake in my prior configuration
