i was looking at getting the rouch fascia, but i looked closer and saw on the complete bodykit how low it was to the ground. i dont know if the car had lowering springs, but i think it might look bad if the bumper cover is 1-2 inches lower than the side skirts. http://www.stage3motorsports.com/Index.html you can pick one up there if you want it. i guess id have to see a pic of one on a stang w/ regular sides before i bought mine, though.

ive been considering many different combos and the only one i really care for would be a complete roush kit with side exhaust ..... which will be 700 for the body parts plus exhaust which will be 600-700 bucks .... so 1400 plus paint

Side exhaust is cool until you have to sit at a stop light.. my friend has one and he told me everytime he stops at a street light with his windows down all the exhaust fumes come up in his car. Looks good but bad idea unless ya feel like gettin' high..

Keep the '01 Cobra front. It looks so much cleaner then the Roush would. Get the Saleen side scoops and the Saleen C-Pillars. Then get the smoked foglights and smoked taillights.
