Thinking about getting a boss spliter.

I'm thinking about getting a boss spliter with a cs lower facia with fog lights. He asking 400 for all of it is that a good used price? I'm not sure what they go for used.

That's about $100 off them new. Boss splitter has 26 bolts that attach it to the fascia & bumper. If they weren't measured and drilled properly it won't line up. Did he have pics of them installed? It would be a pain in the ass if they were off centered and you had to correct it.

I'd probably just spend the extra cash and buy them new. Unless he's willing to take less?

Thats exactly what I am contemplating, whether or not to spend the extra money and get it new. It has the Boss splitter already attached to the cs facia w/fogs. I priced it out on AM and its $524 total. The splitter is mounted perfectly on the facia and is in great condition. I was thinking the used price should be a little lower though. $350 shipped a good offer?

I'd be firm about offering $350. Used is used.

Maybe I'm just an ignorant doofus, but what exactly is a "splitter?"

Every time I see someone refer to a splitter, I think it's the entire front bumper, but i get the feeling I'm way off. Someone tell me it's the black lower part of the front/rear bumper and confirm that I am indeed an idiot.

thanks.

No... A splitter is what connects the fuel lines to the a/c compressor. It looks like a cosmetic mod, but it actually chills your gasoline to that of a cold beverage to create more combustion and quench your thirst if needed. Most people install a tap to gain access to the chilled gasoline from inside the car like the pic below.

Now that we got that one out of the way, what is it really?

A splitter (at least for modern gt500, boss302, and roushes) is a flat extension below the front facia.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffu...ive)#section_2

There is a sub section on that wiki specific to front splitters.

HEY! What the hell do you think you are doing?!? I'm the forum clown!

Maybe there's room for another. That was pretty clever. I'm gonna have to tax you for that one.

That's my educated opinion.

It actually stops air from going underneath the car, by extending out and pushing it to the sides of the car instead of letting t get to the dirty (aerodynamically) underneath. Also, it is used to create downforce in more serious cars, ours work for drag, but most of them won't do much for front downforce.

Your explanation sounds better. But I have a feeling it's a lot less functional then they let on.

In combination with other drag reducers, I noticed a feeling with the car. It makes it more slippery, less fuel is needed to do the same things, and coasting lasts longer. Might not be noticed on a clean, aero wise, car, but a v8 is around .36 Cd, so you may notice it a tiny bit. I would think it is like a new drive shaft. No miracle, but a feeling of a little ease.

So would it be something worthwhile for someone driving 50 highway miles a day? It isn't the car can't go and manage it with this beast of an engine, but it does feel like it struggles more than it should sometimes.

So what is the most functional splitter? I'm looking a the new roush, and another one. The boss is way too much for the new 13's. it doesn't look like the roush will do the job of the boss splitter though. Opinions?

Here's a page with a pretty good explanation: Aerodynamic Upgrades, devices for increasing downforce.

I would think the Boss w/ Laguna Seca extension is the most actually useful one. For the track. For the street, it's pretty much just cosmetic.

Definitely not just cosmetic. Of it sticks out, it scoops air to the sides instead of underneath. On duty on lunch so I am not about to go into crazy detail, but it does work. Not as effective as a full under body, but great for dropping drag. Keep in mind many small boosters make a difference. Like putting on a CAI may not make a huge difference. As with mods, a few Hp here and there isn't easy to notice, same with dropping drag, but over time maximizing Hp and maximizing drag reduction will make a huge difference.

It is a piece if plastic. And it makes a calculate difference, proven scientifically, on the track, and on the road. It is not a miracle, but it is more than a just a look.

I have no clue. All my stuff is Roush in the front, I do not really know about the GT front end or the other splitters. But, a splitter or air dam is easy to make. It just depends how much work you want to do lol. For the price of these, one could buy the materials and tools to do it, paint it and seal it.
