GT/CS Front Splitter

Hey everyone! I've been thinking of getting a front splitter for my GT/CS. I've seen ones with support rods and they look really cool. That's what I was going for and was going to get a universal one with support rods. Anyway, in my search for a splitter, I found this picture...



It's a GT500 factory splitter and the contours matches the GT/CS fascia perfectly. I might go this route instead. What do you think? It's about 70 bucks or so at the Ford dealer from what people have told me.

I think its an excellent option. Probably the best that could be done really. The only problem I have with it is that at the bottom of our GT/CS front bumper covers, especially towards the ends where it meets the wheel wells, there is a bevelled edge that to me doesn't look right with a flat splitter sitting under it. It's almost like a mini chin spoiler molded into the front fascia on the two corners. I'm not sure the splitter looks right on there like that. I'm just thinking out loud here. I would like to see it in person really.

It's OEM and that's good enough for me!

Are you talking about the mirrors? The mirrors look like they've been sanded smooth before painting.

The center lip of the fascia looks kind of glossy so they probably painted it. Compare the center lip to the honeycomb pieces next to it and you'll see the difference.

My lower grill? I never bought an aftermarket lower grill. I posted about the Silverhorseracing GT/CS lower grill but never got it. What I do have is a home made grill made out of gutter guard mesh from Home Depot. Cost me less than 2 bucks. The mesh openings are smaller than the honeycomb openings on our cars so it does a better job of deflecting road debris.

I like the splitter. The previous owner had the outter lower parts of the GT/CS bumper cover painted to match the mirrors (actually paited the whole lower piece but the normally black center section is flaking off). I am thinking of having it returned to original (clearcoat black UA), but if I went with the splitter, it might look better to leave it. Comments......

I've read that it took a lot of cutting and modding to get that splitter to fit on a GT bumper. Would it be the same for the CS?

I wouldn't think so, the regular GT bumper is much different along that lower edge, it's more rounded along the bottom and has a large raised center area that really doesn't match up well to the GT500 piece.

I want this for my car so bad. I wonder if the owner of the car pictured could chime in on the install?

A front splitter should have been available for this bumper by now.

I agree. Especially now that I have perfected parking with this car. (I back up into every spot every time)

Unfortunately my car is still bone stock. It just seems that Las Vegas has curbs and parking blocks, set 1 1/2 inches higher than what I was used to in Illinois. I've been out here for three years and still find a way to stop short, get out and make sure I have room still to park. The front plastic piece of the intrepid I used to have was gristle and that thing was a 4x4 compared to the Mustang.

I found a write up on installing it but on the GT. I would imagine that it would be different from installing it on a CS but its a starting point i guess.
