Thanks Kevin and Nate.

"To me your car just got a late start." Now that's a great statement! that should be a quote in a tag somewhere. Well said!

Someone on here made a statement that's relevant to this situation. Sorry whoever said this I couldn't remember you name. Here it is slightly modified.
When someone criticizes what mods you've done to your car, hold out your hand. When they question what you are doing, tell them to give you some money. When they ask why, tell them; if you want your opinion to matter, pay for the mods.
I kind of screwed it up but I think you get the gist of it. They aren't paying for the mods, insurance, gas, and maintenance. So, their opinion of your car doesn't matter, and it never will.

It's your car and do it the way you want. Just remember that when it comes time to sell it, don't try to pawn it off as a real Rousch car.

if you've managed to purchase and modify a 5.0 engine cover and it's now on top of your 3.7 then your theme will be off base but still on the same poser level= master.
It's no different really than me putting Shelby badges and emblems on my base GT. it may look and drive really nice, even show quality, but fake is fake.
The only people that would even know what that red and black R emblem is on your sides and faux gas cap will also know the Jack Roush signature on the rear is missing or forged. Please don't put a fake Jack Roush signature on there.
I don't have a Roush or Shelby. I wish I did. i won't pretend to have one mainly because the only people who would even care, would feel embarrassed for me.... And I'll end up as a YouTube poser video.

That is not true at all though. Shelbys have a stock V8 supercharged engine while a stock 5.0 does not. A Roush RS has a stock V6 engine which so does his V6 base. He is not claiming to have a bigger engine that he does. He is not claiming to have a Roush stage 3 with a supercharged V8, that is why he is doing the Roush RS conversion because he is not trying to be a poser. He is converting his car exactly like the Roush even with the same engine as the Roush RS which is a V6.

I wanted to get a roush grilles and have the r badge painted grabber blue to match my stripes but fear of being to much of a poser. I'm not claiming to have a bigger engine just think the r badge looks dope

Would it be fake, technically yes because the package wasn't added on through Roush or a Roush dealer. Would you be a poser or would the car be a POS? Not at all! I say go for it

Honestly, i've let this go for a few days, but i think i just need to say my piece.

Yes, it is your car, your money, your choice, but in the end, it is fake. You can make it a clone by all means, put every single Roush part on there, make it a badass looking car, but skip the badges, because in reality your car is not a Roush.

I had a buddy in highschool who did this to his cobalt. It was a base model that he added the supercharger, rims, and suspension to and put SS- Supercharged badges on it. Yes, his car had all the components that the SS had, but that still does not make it an SS. To me, there is just something about trying to be a "poser."

Again, by all means i am not saying dont put the parts on the car, just skip the badges. Hell, i've made my fiance's base model v6 a gt500 clone. Shes got the Hood, The grilles, the wing, but its got big ol 3.7 badges on the side so that people know we arent trying to be something we're not. You do your thing man, and i see there are some very understanding Roush owners in this thread, but if i owned one this is something that would rub me the wrong way.

Did I write this? My thoughts exactly. One thing I will add, if you don't want to spend your ownership years explaining your car over and over again to people who question it, skip the badging. That alone will take the enjoyment out of having it.

If there was a six cylinder boss that's what it would look like. Very nice/tasteful mods, I like how it looks like it's factory. Nothing too audacious, just nice and elegant, looks factory-like.

That I have no problem with. I was at a car show years ago and someone was there with a 1995 Trans Am that they did a tribute to the 1994 25th anniversary edition with. They actually had 26th on the car wherever there would have been 25th. I thought that was a very cool and ingenious idea. Both the T/A I saw and the Boss 227 here is a nice tribute, and identifiable as such. Here is a pic of a 25th T/A if you don't know what they looked like:

That was the goal. I wanted to throw back to the 1969 style, which is the paint scheme, yet use modern body parts off the 2012 boss. A lot of older people think it's a disgrace, but once I explain what I'm doing, they tend to be a little more acceptable of it. It's not just a random number, it's the cubic inch displacement of the motor.

I'm 50 and I like it! The car, that is, being 50 sucks!

I'm the same way I hate displacement in Liters, there's to many engines that it can be. A 7.0L is literally 5+ different engines. I still have to convert everything to cu. in. to get an idea of the engine size. Which CC is more accurate and well CN and CM are even more accurate. I'm 21 but I was raised with old school cars so I know cu. in. Not liters.
And I think you did a very good job. Which it would be cool if ford made a mean six cylinder boss. I'd definitely look into buying one.
Sorry for the bad grammar. I'm from KY, we're basically required to have bad grammar.

Same. 22 years old, 3 more classes to get my master mechanic certificate, and raised around chevelle SS most of my childhood with my parents.

I've done everything performance wise except throttle body, shorty headers, and gears. I'm about to slap a gt500 spoiler on and paint the top gloss black, the bottom portion white. I love/hate the tiny oem ducktail

I would do a stage 2 Roush on the v6. All body and suspension mods. Stage 3 is boost, but we can't go that particular route.

Not a Roush supercharger but you could use a Centrifugal, and maybe put the Roush logo on it.

Im sure we all have figured it out by now but this is what the OP is going for Roush RS
And Honestly, I wouldn't mind a bit if he put the badges and everything on, the "real" roush RS is 35k, while he could take a brand new 2014 v6 and put all this stuff on it and not even scratch anywhere near that price. All the 35k gets you is all that stuff and Roush's name, is it really work you paying 5-7k more just for a name? I know this, because I have a Roush dealer near me called Tindol Ford, they are one of the highest selling Roush dealers around, and I asked them about "converting" my 2014 base into an RS, they said it is either rolled out of the factory as a Roush or not, there is no actual RS conversion. That being said the guy I was talking to told me I could trade mine in for an RS if I wanted, and when he told me how much it was, I politely thanked him for his time and moved on.

Sorry to high jack, when I decided to get my mustang back in 2012, I wanted a MT w 3.73's. Every one I found in the northeast and called on was to be a Roush car. Mind you I searched, found X dealer with a mustang GT with said options. It wasn't listed as a Roush car but when I called the dealer, I was told it was being converted to a Roush? Multiple cars, multiple dealers. Maybe things have changed? Needless to say Roush quickly became my nemisis! And as most things in life...I ended up putting a Roush charger and springs in. Ugh!

Multiple cars, multiple dealers. Maybe things have changed? Needless to say Roush quickly became my nemisis! And as most things in life...I ended up putting a Roush charger and springs in. Ugh!
Pretty sure you can send your car in to Roush and have it converted

I'm not going to say your 100% wrong, you may indeed be right, but I wonder why the roush dealer would tell me other wise?

You might be able to have Roush do it. Now if they do it would it be considered a genuine Roush, I doubt it. Since they are making S550 conversions, and yours is the pervious gen. They have a bad habit of forgetting about their other models. Take mine for example, they don't offer the supercharger or any repair parts for the supercharger in my car anymore. Which it would be pretty costly on their end if they still stocked the parts for all their models. It doesn't make them a bad tuner but it would be more beneficial to their owners to have the parts available, for repairs.

That may be true also, but the only reason I believed him, is because he opened the door of one of the RS's and showed me a plate, or sticker, what ever it was, just inside the passenger door, that apparently all the Roush's have, and said if it didn't come that way it wasn't a real Roush. Now you are right, you can order all the parts from them and put them on, but he said it just wasn't going to be considered a real Roush. NOW that being said, that dealership is the only source of real face to face information I have received reguarding that, I'm not saying it may or may not be true about the conversions, its just what I personally have been told by a Roush Dealer.

Would it be considered fake?

That's one of the things that a Roush needs to be genuine. They also offer other identification plaques in various places on the car or truck. The number 1 thing a Roush needs to be genuine is be in the Roush registry.

I say do as many as the Roush type upgrades as you want and then put a plate, or sticker on with YOUR OWN NAME.
