Nope, plus I like the hot air brake heater and dryer. LOL.

Personally, I would have use a Nissan 3.7L and Corvette door handles!

It's interesting that an LS motor will fit into a '67 mustang without modification to the shock towers (?) but a coyote won't.

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

I don't know if this is a bad idea, it's just something I've never seen.
Is the brace a drag racing thing?

Yes, it's to keep the motor from flexing enough to tear the rubber motor mount. I used to use a piece of chain down to the frame rail on my Mach 1, so that it had some flex but not enough to rip the mount.

Added stress on the shock tower doesn't look good to me.

I had a similar brace on my first Mustang a 1967 Fastback with a high zoot 351 4V quench head Cleveland with a 4 speed and 9 inch. 4.56 gears and tall slicks.

I attached to the frame member at the base of the shock tower with a chain like Steve did! No prob and it worked great to protect the left side motor mount!

Today I have Ron Morris motor mounts that are unbreakable!!

I had the front edges of my scoops painted white as well. Of course the whole car was white, so it didn't show, but the thought was there.

It looks like someone didn't buy into Nancy's "Just Say No" program.
