Is this not a strut tower brace? I'm familiar with the typical ones that bow over the engine as I had one on my Focus but the installs I've seen of those on the Mustang have not shown this brace i have but 2 painted studs instead. Looking for clarification as no point in buying one if these do the same thing.

That is what is called the upper K brace and there is also the strut tower brace that is shown above but there is also a cowl extension brace that ties the cowl to the wiper well to the K brace you have along with the strut tower brace.
They all work together to stiffen the chassis.

You need these part numbers for the cowl extension and 4 bolts to install it.

Cowl extension= FR3Z-63016A52-A

Bolts x 4= W717964-S450B.

You may also already have the cowl extension brace on your car if you look under the wiper cover you can see it if it is there.
