    The day I brought my Bullitt home and popped the hood I noticed my tower brace says Ford Performance and not Bullitt. Does anyone else have this or does it say Bullitt? 755ED7E6-D7E9-4D80-9F8A-49DF12D2ED06.jpeg A6BACCA7-38C6-4BCE-9F2A-D8BDAA6E89CB.jpeg

    That’s odd. Mine says Bullitt. I’ll be interested to see other replies.

    Looks like someone swapped it with the Ford Performance GT350 brace. Is it a new car?

    In my search for the right Bullitt for me, I saw a number of cars which looked liked had parts scavenged. Primarily the cue ball shifter, and the dash plate build number missing. I wouldn’t doubt someone stole the original

    Yup, that's BULL -- ITT. :wink:

    Mine has the Bullitt tower brace. I've never seen that before...

    The Bullitt tower brace is MUCH nicer. That's really odd. Probably a used car, or it'd be even more disturbing :D.

    It isn't a used car. Brand new, never titled, never sold, 2019 Bullitt bought from a Ford Dealership. So, it is a mystery. I guess my car has an additional GT350 part. What makes the Bullitt tower brace nicer? Better quality, size, strength?

    Bring it back to your selling Dealer and tell them it is a misbuild; the problem will be covered under warranty....

    Hmmmm. How about 2020s? Do they have the same FP than yours, or the Bullitt one? The only thing that would explain the change is if Ford changed it after an 'x' chassis S/N. My car was one of the last 2019s at K7979, and has the correct brace. If your car's build is earlier than mine, then there's no excuse. Not a huge deal, but something happened to the original, and your dealer has to have an answer for that. Good luck.

    Check and see if they mistakenly put a Voodoo under it.

    Mine says Bullitt but I bought it separately from Levittown Ford because the export Bullitts don't have that strut

    The thought crossed my mind, and wouldn’t that be cool? But she certainly sounds like a Bullitt! I think the odd tower brace gives her a bit of character, a birth mark maybe. I think I’ll keep it!

    Wow. You lucked out. The GT350 brace you have is stiffer and much lighter.
