Default Strut tower brace

Just picked up a chrome strut tower brace off Craigslist for 20 bucks. The seller said he ordered it for his 2001 but never installed it. Car got totaled and brace sat in his garage for 10 years. I have an 05 GT convertible. I opened my hood and layed it across to see if it would most likely fit. Seems to. My question is does anybody know if there is any difference in dimensions in the strut tower braces between the NA and turbo or is it just the modified solenoid bracket that comes with the new braces. Thanks in advance.

There is no differences. These are a great dress up but have no other affect. They do look good though.

Good mod - it will "tighten" your steering in cornering.
No difference except for solenoid bracket.

Cool, that's what I thought. Now I'll just have to figure out how to modify the solenoid bracket. Thanks for the replies.
