The 3 inch Off road pipe would not fit the standard fitment bar given there would be only 1/4 inch clearance with our cfm 2 1/2 off road pipe.

The lower fitment one would work. The lower fitment bar is about 1.4 inches lower the lowest point on the svtf being the bottom of the svtf header flange. You could take a tape measure and measure 1.4 inches below the header flange to have an idea what you are looking at for ground clearance.

The main concern I would think is going over speed bumps. If both wheels go over the speed bump, the vehicle would be raised over it. The lowest point of the bar being at the subframe right at the front wheels.

Well My car has 3.5" to the header flange on the svt header so subtract 1.4" that would leave me with 2.1" of ground clearance. Not a hole lot!

No one has mentioned, so I will; can this be used with the Lakewood traction bar and a 3" turbo back?

You could make a 2-pointer that goes under your main lakewood bar.

I would say probably not= cause the main bar that goes from the cradle to your replacement radiator support would be in the way. You could possibley make a 2 pointer, that goes under your main lakewood bar thou. I moddit many different aftermarket part's to work w/ oneanother on different car's, like 5.0's & Iroc's
