Body kit thoughts

K, I've been looking around at different body kits for my 2011 GT 5.0 and come across a few and wondered if anyone had one of these kits and the reviews on these. The first is the Boy Racer from 3dCarbon [1]. I really like the lines and the aggressive look the kit provides. The second is the C-Series from Cervini's [2]. However, have to find something different for the sides since they don't have anything listed for the 2011. I like the ducktail from the C-Series for a spoiler so wonder how the car would look with the 3dcarbon front and rear but with the ducktail spoiler.

Anyway, just wondering everyone's thoughts on these as well as other suggestions that make the car look screaming while standing still.

No and.........no. Not a fan of body kits at all but I do for some odd reason like the black mamba one. The boy racer and others are just to plasticy for me.

You and I are the odd ones out lol, I like the boy racer kit because it eliminates that stock ford unpainted stuff (although you could just paint it if you wanted) and the front end does have an aggressive Shelby-esque look and it's way affordable too.

I LOVE the cervinis kit but not on the 2011, it looked awesome on the 05 but the 2010+ already have the same style hood (but not as dramatic) and much more detail than the 05 so it looks a bit much on the new cars... Too much going on already to add that. I considered doing the front fascia only from the cervinis site but with foglights and grilles it costs more than the entire boy racer kit.

The boy racer set up minus the rear spoiler would be a nice set up. The one that comes with the kit is to fast & furious looking for my taste.

Re: Body kit thoughts

Re: Body kit thoughts

550 RWHP on 20" is what I plan. Also plan on 285 on rear but one day might swap the rear and eventually run 315. But at that point it won't be a daily driver. So for right now I just want a stang that will knock the socks off 99% of the cars on the road and sound bada$$! And want to stay under warrantee until it is up.

Re: Body kit thoughts

I like the cerivini bumper kind of but not the hood, I think the boy one looks a lil too ricey for my taste. Just my two cents.

I was looking at bodykits as well. I have bought the Saleen hood and it's getting painted right now. I'll post picks when it's done. I think for the front if you are going to change it and not go with a OEM ford kit like CS or GT500, then the roush front bumper looks the best. For the rear I kinda like the Cervini rear with no cut outs. Wonder if you could rum a muffler delete with that rear and just put dumps on it. Might sound nasty and look clean

I putting the hood on tonight and just installed the boss302 front splitter. I will post pics when done, I don't think it's going to need pins. The hood is really good quality and not flimsy at all. The test fit before paint was good so i am hoping I don't need them. I like the clean look without.

Roush front bumper, Saleen Hood or True fiber Venom hood. GT500 rear spoiler and roush/GT500 rear valance and call it a day.

The more I look at the Saleen hood the more I like it. It says it's a functional ram air but does it funnel the air over to the air box?

Looks good! Always wondered if an open design like that would be an issue when driving in the rain.

No not really. GM been having hoods like this for a while.

Also price the Saleen hood. It is over 1k. It is a very nice hood but for that price buy a Carbon Fiber one from Tru Fiber. It will look great on the red car.

+1 it was expensive. Way more than most hoods cost but for me it was the only one I like that isn't carbon fiber and from my two previous carbon fiber hoods I'm a little over that fad. I really wanted a 2 step cowl but no one makes one yet and I has a really bad itch to change the stock one

Re: Body kit thoughts

What about converting it to an RTR? I saw a grabber blue one that looked badass.

The RTR hood is the same hood as stock hood. GT500 wing, chin spoiler, and some stickers. No one can sell the decals either. If remember right Latemodelrestoration said you can't buy none of the RTR stuff besides the Wheels.

Correct the RTR has a splitter on a CS front kinda like the bossLS. The sides have the solitudes on them that roush makes and the rear is a special valance that's jot available yet with little side type splitter things. The parts aren't available yet.
