My concern would be reinforcing the strut towers themselves.. If you look at the material in the strut tower, you'll find the metal very thin. It will dent easily. Some aftermarket strut tower braces have actually bent the material in the towers (the makers will remain anonymous). This is not what you want!
That is why Ford did such a great job reinforcing the strut tower braces and distributing the forces to the BOTTOM of the strut tower and didn't rely on just the top.. If you are looking just for looks be very careful.. If you really want the bar to be functional.. get yourself a Ford ST200 brace.. They really are a well designed piece of hardware..
