Roush Vs. Pedestal Spoiler: Your opinions

Hey guys, so I want to clean up the appearance just a bit. I currently have the pedestal spoiler for the GT/CS but I can't decide whether I should keep it or convert over to the Roush 3-piece spoiler (which is the only option for those of us with the pedestal spoiler holes). The Roush does look pretty sweet in my opinion and more aggressive than the gt500 but the pedestal is definitely a worthy rival in aggressive, sharp looks.

What do you guys think and which does everybody prefer?

Roush...

I forgot Ford had this out there, and surprised they still have this site up, but you can play with the simulator and see what you think out here...

Love the looks of my Roush. You already have the hood scoop, just the next step.

Without a doubt, hands down, the CS spoiler. Then again, someone else is going to come in and say without a doubt, hands down the Roush spoiler. So, it really just depends on what you think. Just remember, if you choose the Roush you can't go back. You have to drill holes in your rear fenders.

I love the look of it too! I tried to click that link but it wouldn't open. I think the roush has a nice look, I just can't decide whether I'm just restless or if it would be a upgrade over my CS.

See I was right there with you whenever I got it man. I loved it, I had my 14 looking nearly identical (relatively) to my first one back in 04. But as I've grown used to it I feel like the newer ones look sportier with the fin/lip type spoilers and I'm just so torn! The fact that it requires the side holes is a big hesitation factor for me, but then again why would I want to change again anyway...(which is exactly what I said not so long ago in a driveway far far away... When I drilled my CS spoiler holes lol.)

Your car looks like it's also got the roush fog lights. Seems like it's more suited for a roush wing.

Never mind man I got the link to work, I used that simulator forever when I was trying to determine what all I wanted on my car before I got it. There is an app if you have a smartphone that is really cool, it's called mustang customizer and it allows you to add everything you could want to it.

Out of those two choices i like the Roush better personally.

My favorite is a GT500 spoiler though.

Exactly^^ Yeah it is kind of a handy tool. There's nothing else I've found like it with that many options.

I'm thinking the Roush might be the way to go.

Ok don't think I'm a doosh but if it were mine, I would keep the CS spoiler and change to a different wheel.

Yeah I agree. I wanted 20s to fill up the wheel wells after I lowered it and found these 20x9s brand new with brand new directional tires on Craigslist for $300 just a 10 minute drive away so I acted impulsively and picked them up from the guy about 30 minutes after I saw the post for $250. Later that night after looking up the pricing I came to the conclusion that he was either real hard up for some cash or they were hotter than a 64' Impala in South Central, which was confirmed when his number was disconnected the same day. But yeah, new wheels are in the future along with some drilled/slotted rotors and maybe front/rear performance brakes. Although, for the deal I got these work and I don't hate em.

That car looks immaculate! I think everything about it looks just right except to me the wheels don't look like they fit the rest of the package. You really did an awesome job!

Since you got the rims for practically a "steal" why not hit them with some rattle can black chrome? It would make them less in your face, and tie in with the sinister black theme you have going. You could even tape off the lip and have a contrast that would create even more depth. It wouldn't be something you would have to keep forever if you plan on new rims at some point anyway.

Hey thanks man, I really appreciate that. It has become a lot more than just a car to me at this point. I agree though, the rims don't match up the way I'd like with the rest of the flow but I've never been a fan of the whole "murdered out" look or black wheels in general. I think there is a middle ground to be found that is left to be desired.

You know, I have actually really considered doing exactly what you just said on several occasions. I think the black chrome would be perfect and really make them look wicked. I just really worry about messing it up and then making them look worse. The only stuff I've seen that looks like what you're referring to seems to be permanent and that along with being concerned with getting all of the wheels to match correctly is what has had me hesitant. The black chrome with a chrome lip would look awesome in my opinion too though. Thanks man!

It is awesome. Really changed the responsiveness of the car. Quicker starts. Can tell an immediate difference. Lopey idle is amazing, get a slight shaking, just like a real big cam. The Boss side pipes also go really nice with the lopey idle. Well worth it! It is the only key I use now. Got it from AutoNation. Best price I could find. Great to deal with. No regrets, and would do it again. Cost about 1 1/2 hours of shop time to get it installed, around $160.

Looks a little strange like that.

You must have recieved it, huh?

So do you have it on or just positioning it? Post pics when completed.

I have that center piece mounted and taped down. I haven't mounted the side pieces yet. I used a grinder and took off the screws that stuck out of the side pieces so I could just tape them on instead of having 6 new holes. I'm thinking about having the side pieces modified a little on the bottom so they don't come down so far. I'm not all that find of how that looks.
