Eh, it's not that much more than any of the external girdles ($160 for the Billet Flow brace) or other covers (JPW ~$200). I paid $231 shipped for mine. Plus, you get the bearing cap support screws and a drain plug when you get any of the new covers that the external braces can't provide. Also, the Ford Racing piece has more webbing than the other designs.
So, considering it all, I think it's a worth it the extra bucks.
