Question Q: Strut tower brace fitment?

I have a 89 saleen that i have put a paxton novi 1000 supercharger on it and the bad thing is that my strut tower brace will not work, because the discharge tube is now in the way. Does anybody know who sells a discharge tube that will go under the brace so i can put it back on? If someone could figure it out I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Rob

My old supercharged 88 saleen that I used to have was supercharged. You will have to notch out the underside of the strut tower brace to make it worked fine for me.

I had the same problem. I tried routing the supercharger discharge tube around the strut tower brace and finally just said "screw it. this strut tower brace was not made to clear a supercharger" and just replaced it with a newer one ('90-'93 style).

where did you get that plaque for the upper intake? I have an exployer intake that resembles your 93 cobra intake, but I want to use a new plaque instead of the factory V8 5.0L one...point me in the right direction

Back in 1989 the popular method to fit a centrifugal supercharger onto a 1987-89 Saleen Mustang was to, counter-clock the compressor on the mounting plate, then have the intake tube point upwards at the throttle body, then use a rubber hose elbow to connect the tube to the TB.
