This one-piece strut brace has been designed specifically to accommodate the AEM Intake fitted to MINI Cooper S & JCW models. It features a specific bend to the length of the brace, meaning it snugly fits around the induction kit’s air ducting. The brace is constructed of 1-1/2” steel tubing providing great strength and low weight. Bolting to the suspension turrets, it helps lock the top of the struts together to help prevent chassis flex in fast corners and extreme situations.

- Reduces Strut Movement
- Eliminates strut tower flex
The AEM brace does not fit N14 JCW’s running the standard MINI air box. The AEM intake must be fitted to the N14 JCW for the AEM brace to fit. This is because the brace will foul on the MAF sensor and does not allow the brace to sit flat. The AEM brace does not fit directly on to the GP2 where negative camber is set up. This is because the top strut pins do not sit straight.
