It's good. I was split between this and the Boss/CS one. In the end, value for money is very good. Ebay Chinese knockoff price with much better quality. I think the Boss splitter would fit flawlessly whereas this has some minor fit issues here and there, but ultimately you save $400+ so I took a stab at it and it turned out well.

Does it use the stock one like the Roush does? Do you have a picture of it before installation? Thank you

It's a complete splitter. Stocker comes off, new one goes on. This is really the only off-car photo I have of it...

Thanks guys, really happy with how it's shaping up. Still need to do control arms and the rear shocks (whenever they show up). But the cars gone from getting quite a few looks, to a ton of long stares. The ride is better (even without the upgraded rear shocks) and the handling is locked down. There is no downside to this setup. None at all.

How was your alignment with the Gt500 strut mounts? In spec?

Haven't aligned yet. Was planning on driving it for a bit to let everything settle before I get the alignment. I can see visually there's a fair bit of front camber, so I'm going to reverse the front mounts. Been having some health problems lately so the car is sitting half-disassembled in the garage. Might get back to work this weekend.

Long Overdue Update

Sorry guys, been MIA for some time on here. My cars been tucked in for the winter for a couple months now but its time to start preparing for spring. Not much new in terms of parts, I picked up the K&N FIPK filter & intake tube kit. But I do have one issue that needs to be worked out...

All last summer the faux fuel cap emblem kept falling off my MMD decklid panel, because when I initially installed it, I broke the little posts so I had it body taped to the panel. Well, when I put the car away I went to take the whole panel off, so I could figure out a new fastening method over the winter...and broke the decklid panel. So I'm pondering alternatives. Just get another MMD panel? I really like the look but the emblem is a pain. CDC panel? Similar design but no emblem? If it was concave like MMD this would be a no brainer, but because its flat or slightly convex, I'm not sure I like it. Or go RTR and have it painted flat black? I don't want gloss black because IMO its too much of a wall of black back there. Going to stock is also an option, and painting that flat black.

Thoughts?
