Just a bit of googling will net you some results.

Try and avoid used bumpers with tears or large gashes. These will cost less to you, but are expensive for repairs by a good body shop. You can't use body type filler for these sort of repairs on a plastic front or rear bumper cover; its a special epoxy that bonds to the plastic, and is flexable. It's best to get a chip/tear free used bumper in any color and have it painted. If your lucky, you may find a perfect one in your color.

Just wondering if it will definitely fit, cause a few people have told me no it won't. I have seen it done but im not sure. So will the V8 bumper fit on my V6?

I did a swap 4 months after I got her. Added the CS lower and saleen grille. Took 2 hours with spare hands. No extra parts or mods. Looks totally factory. I got the bumper from Roush. Total parts 1100 shipped to Ontario.

The bumper was a new take off part. Ford factory from a GT. Roush sold them online. I'm pretty sure you can still find 11-12 GT bumpers from newtakeoff.com or latemodelrestoration.com . I got the lower CS/Boss valence from late model. Included the fog lights and connecting harness. The grille was ordered from AM. There is a fantastic install tutorial on lmr's website. It's simple if you do it yourself. Just have a buddy so you don't scratch anything. Four hands are better than two. If you have more questions pm me.

The stripe was factory. It's the 2012 MCA edition stripe. Contact ford. I'm sure you could order one. Or any local bodyshop should be able to get one for you.

Okay, are the only differences between v6 and v8 bumpers the grille fitment? Cause I can't notice any other differences.

GTs have a grille surround. Google it. So the the area between your grille and head light assembly is completely different.

Factory style V6 grille are all one piece

The saleen grille eliminates the need for the surround. The swap is very easy. All parts are interchangeable. No extra parts will be needed.

Also the boss eliminates it too. I have a white surround so I have to give that up :/

Depending on the year, the V6 and V8's became one common bumper cover...2014 I think. They all look like the California specials now in the front.
