One piece is MUCH stiffer than the multi-piece alternatives! Now updated to V2 with X design for even more strength. LIGHTEST Shock Tower Brace on the market for ND ... featuring an ultra stiff honeycomb aluminium construction. Just 4.3lbs (2kgs)! Finished with a durable powder coat finish.
The aluminium bar possesses high rigidity and resists flex while stiffening up your engine bay for better steering response and less front cowl shake. Most easy way to reduce NVH. This bar for the ND MX5 also connects to the firewall.

Strong AND lighter!
Many times stronger than the multi-piece factory steel brace and yet lighter too! Factory steel shock tower brace: 4.5 lbs (2kgs)
Other aftermarket steel shock tower braces solve the strength issue of the factory brace, but are far too heavy, the lightest of them starting around 8-9 lbs and they go up from there! RoadsterSport V2 honeycomb aluminium shock tower brace: 4.3 lbs (2kgs)
YES, fits with Edelbrock Supercharger.
If your ND MX5 came with a factory steel shock tower brace this is a nice upgrade designed to include access for adjustment knobs when you add adjustable shocks or coilovers.
INSTALLATION NOTES: Re-uses some stock hardware and includes additional hardware needed for install. If your ND MX5 did not come with factory shock tower brace note you need to add the Mazda Cowl Mounting Bracket for Shock Tower Brace, our item 60-1238ND. Install of 60-1238ND is a challenge for average DIY owner, typically a mechanic will install the 60-1238ND bracket.
If your ND MX5 already has a stock tower brace then the cowl bracket is factory installed and swapping out just the shock tower brace is very easy, just 14 ft/lbs please on the shock tower and firewall nuts.
Note that due to small differences between cars, rear cowl bracket position, etc. the brace may not sit perfectly flat until it is bolted down fully. To install, set the brace in position and then lightly install all bolts/nuts that hold the brace to the vehicle and then tighten them down evenly. The brace will snug down to the vehicle and the result will be extremely rigid and strong.
