Help! Does anybody know where I could find / purchase this grille for my 2013 v6? I've spent countless hours trying to find this grille but I cannot find it. Amy information would be much appreciated!

I'm not sure if it will go on a 13 though. If you really can't find one, they probably haven't made one yet.

Re: 2013 mustang exterior mods

It is the MCA edition grille and was standard on my 2013 ride. The Ford dealer has both this and the Black version that graces the front end of the California Special...

Has anyone replaced there stock grille with some other one? Because I was thinking of buying a brand new 2013 California special billet grille for my 2013 v6 but I was seeing that to install I would have to remove the front fascia or something. Has anyone else replaced their grille? If so... how hard was it?

Re: 2013 mustang exterior mods

it's a pain in the butt. The lower grille will pop out in 3 minutes once you get that 20+ bolted on lower panel out. For the upper.....get a coupe of towels reay around the headlights and upper bumper, then remove radiator cowl, then the heavy thick plastic piece (8 bolts on top, 2 halfway down the back of grille and bolt into radiator support) then carefully tilt upper grille area away from radiator until you can remove the thick support brace...then its all down hill....the grille will pop out in about 2 minutes and slap the new one home in about 1 minute...then reverse the whole process...OR remove the entire front fascia/bumper...

Alright thanks for the help. And with 2 people how long do you think it would take in total? And do you think getting the California special black edition grille is worth the investment? Will it make it look THAT much better?

Should I go with 18 inch or 19 inch wheels?I am getting then staggered. I'm kind of scared that 19 inch will be too big and won't look good. Right now I have the stock 17 inch wheels.

Can't go wrong with either. My 18's look perfect imo. I'd recommend lowering though.

Yours looks really good. I was also thinking about going with 18 and lowering. But what all would I need to buy to lower it?

Looking for better handling or more of an appearence thing? I'm running eibach pro-kits springs, shocks, struts, sway bars, stb and panhard. The handling is just amazing for this car. It'll cost you though. If you just want looks then just grab springs and a panhard. Should cost around $300ish + installation if you don't do it yourself. My pro-kit springs give it a perfect ride height imo. Other good brands out there though. Just try to stay around a 1" drop or you'll need more stuff. Some people have needed strut mounts but I haven't :/

Yes. The pictures on American Musxle's website don't do them justice and the video example is of 18" wheels. 19" in person are sweet.

I know this isn't an exterior mod but I just installed my afraid CAI for my 2013 v6 and whenever I step on the gas, it makes sort of this Woosh sound before hearing the engine. Is this normal or is it because air is escaping somewhere. I thought it was just normal until I like break it in, have barely driven it yet. Any opinions?

Re: 2013 mustang exterior mods

I have the eibach lowering kit also. Get the Ford Racing mounts. Much better than stock and only $85

Here is a pic with stock height and stock 19" wheels and then dropped 1" with SVE 19" wheels.



Here is a gallery with more wheel pics.

18's are the way to go for tire prices. 19's for just a hair better look. I am not sold on staggered because then you can not rotate. You also loose cornering friction with a smaller contact patch.

The stock air box has a resonator to muffle that sound. Aftermarket CAI does not.
