I thought that was a totally different splitter. Dunno? I won't do any thing else to it though. Laguna splitter is kinda pricey I think. Fixing to lay some tile for a buddy of mine that's building a house. The money I get from that I'm thinking side splitters, Barton shifter( already have 2 post bracket), and maybe the two gauge package and gauge pod trim piece from AM.

Thanks. Good advice. My 07 was lowered so I am used to leaving a little room in the front. Besides, I back in every chance I get( usually every time).

It looks good. I've got the same splitter as well. Surprisingly, I haven't had any issues scraping the ground or bumping into curbs. I guess I'm taking parking and driveway entry's and exits a lot more carefully.

At stock height I haven't had any trouble either. It always sits above the curbs. Here shortly soon as my CC plates come in I am going to have to watch out for the curbs.

You lowering? If so, what all are you replacing besides the plates?

Maximum Motorsport caster camber plates, koni strt shocks and struts, h&r super sport springs, BMR pan hard bar. Have everything at my house but the CC plates. Backordered for another weekish from what AM told me. Also doing FRPP jounce bumpers since it is such a low drop and Cincinnati streets are crappy.

Soon after going to do the LCA and UCA from BMR with relo brackets for the LCA.

Boss splitter from AM. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Was a PITA to install by myself, but took my time and improvised and I love it.

California Special came with the lower fogs from factory instead of grill fogs. You have to have the CS/Boss lower facia for this splitter to fit. Make sure to research before you decide.

I have the MRT front splitter on my 2011 GT. It's like a cross between the standard Boss 302 splitter and the one that's on the Laguna Seca Boss. I had it on last summer for a 3000 mile trip and 100 miles from home on the return trip I actually hit a big chunk of semi truck retread laying in the road with it at 75mph (couldn't avoid it- cars on both sides of me). I thought, "oh man, this thing will be torn up", so I pulled over first chance I got to inspect it. Some of the plastic connectors(?) that attach it to the GT/CS valance were pulled out, but the adjustable turnbuckles kept it from dragging or anything so I drove it home like that. Once home, I got the car up on ramps and got under it, and miraculously, nothing was damaged. I pulled out the connectors, repositioned the splitter, and reinserted them and it was all good. I guess these things are more durable than I thought they would be. Anyway, here's a couple of pics of the MRT splitter on my car.

Not terrible but you do have to completely remove the front bumper cover

Yeah, they're pretty durable, I have the same splitter on my car and haven't had any issues. I took the lower fascia off the front bumper to install it, you don't have to, but it was a heck of a lot easier that way. I installed a set of HID bulbs in my fogs after that...loving it. I'd go for the side skirts to match it, here's mine, I love the look...

To clarify- to install the Boss splitter you do not need to remove the front bumper cover, just the GT/CS fascia- to install the MRT splitter, you do need to remove the entire bumper cover, with the fascia, so that you can install the stainless steel turnbuckles (canards?) that come with it.

Yep, that's correct.

And for the BOSS on the GT/CS, you can technically do it on the car, but it'll be a pain. Once I removed the lower engine bay splash guard/cover. I took mine off (the GT/CS fascia) by removing a few bolts (6 or 8) and 2 screws at the ends of the bumper inside the bottom of the front of the fenderwells. From there disconnect the fog light connections and external temp sensor in the lower grille opening, and pull it off.

From there I flipped it over so the bottom faced up on my workbench and the rest of the work was cake at that point.

I installed my boss splitter on the car. Threw her up on some ramps and did it outside with masking tape and a power drill. No biggie!
