Mustang Export Brace in Falcons?

Okay, is anyone running a Mustang "Export Brace" in their Falcon? its a brace that runs from the shocktowers back to the middle of the firewall. Its a big single sheet steel pressing, available cheaply from most of the mustang places.. From talking to the mustang guys it really ties the front end together....
Anyone know if they'll fit XR-XYs (guessing the 67-70 stang braces?)? i imagine the extra width of the XAs onwards causes problems...
If all else fails, I'll just go in with a tape measure... lol

I would guess they do, otherwise just use a shock tower brace and add tubes going to the centre of the firewall, it will achieve the same thing.

Re: Mustang Export Brace in Falcons?

Well. The Mustang braces dont fit... :(
The problem with a "shock tower brace" is that theres a carby, airfilter and shaker scoop in the way... and the steel pressing that makes up the Mustang "Export Brace" is far stiffer laterally than the fabricated braces you normally see that have a plate on each shock tower and one on the firewall and a pair of tubes bolted to them...
I didn't get to measure them, but was told they dont fit... maybe i should find out why they don't fit...
