Its a pain to install unless you have a lift. If I had to do it again I'd go for pro install or the Boss splitter. But...I do love the look.

Yeah thats why i was worried about installing it. I wasnt worried about how hard it was, but I didnt like the idea of having to modify the stock splitter, just incase i ever wanted to go back to stock Especially now that im lowered.

It would have been nice to know ahead of time that cutting was required. If so, i probably would have stayed away from it originally. But it looks great on your car man.

I installed it in less than 2 hours without a lift. You don't need a lift at all. When your ready to drill the holes, just jack one side up a little bit and drill the holes.

Its a pain with the GT/CS or Boss lip. I had to cut the crap out of my lip to install it.

You need the side now to complete the look.

Yeah, the cutting didnt bother me since its easy to get a new stock piece. My issue was getting the closeout panel back in. Sides and rear pieces are on the build list but I think ill wait until I do the suspension which will probably be next spring.

Looks good! I'm trying to decide between the roush side splitters or the tru carbon ones. Not sure how the cf side splitter would look with my roush chin splitter and rtr rear splitters.

I think it would be very difficult to paint because of the material it is made of. You would have a hard time keep the paint from flaking off.

Well considering the bumper is the same material, I would assume it'll do well with paint.

I didn't paint, either. I saw w8lifter or whoever with all those Mustang youtube vids - his was blue and looked nice with rest of car, but I've already had light scrapes and small knocks -- easily sandpapered out if left as black plastic. Cheap part, really. Amazing what they get for them. I wrote up an install guide for another part and used American Muscle's reward to get a better deal on one.

I love my splitter. I have the sides installed as well and have the rear spats waiting to be installed as soon as this weather gets better. I've contemplated painting the splitter, but then the entire kit would have to be painted. I think the black gives it a nice contrast and an oem-plus look.

Agree!

I like the black splitter look as well. Reminds me of the 69/70 Mach 1 splitter (or front spoiler), but not quite a large. I have seen some other brands front splitters that come painted and they look nice, but they are designed to be painted. I do not believe the Roush splitter was intended to be painted. I do wonder what it would look like, but I am not willing to be the first one to screw mine up.
