Front Bumper Removal and APR Front Splitter Install (Video Linked)

Hey guys!

I searched high and low for a install video for the APR front splitter and could not find one for the 2015+ Mustang. So, I've taken it into my own hands and made a video of the install. (linked below)

Why I chose the APR splitter: This thing is a piece of art, its functional, and it looks mean! APR does very high quality work and it shows in the piece. I think the OEM front fascia looks great, but this splitter puts it over the top.

What is it: APR Performance Front Air Dams integrate with the front bumper to reduce front-end lift and increase high-speed stability. Formed in the autoclave at high temperatures, APR Performance Front Air Dams are made from pre-preg carbon fiber materials to be strong and light weight. (Yeah that's right...I know how to use copy and paste)

The install: This was actually a pretty straight forward and easy-ish install. I have never removed a bumper on a car and the thought of drilling into body panels, on a brand new car, send a chill down my spine. However, with a little help from our friends over at Roush and their fascia removal instructions, I was able to remove the bumper with relative ease. The most difficult part was the small screw on each side that takes time and patience to remove. Don't rush it! Take a few breaths and a couple swigs of a cold beer and you'll have it off in no time. Although it is not needed, removing the inner fender well would make a huge difference in the difficulty of this install.

Update on the APR Splitter: I have had it install for a month or so now and have had zero issues with clearance. I have gone over larger speed bumps and up and down fairly steep hills. No problem at all and have not scrapped it once.

Also, I took it to the track and hit 130mph-135mph on 4 roll races and plus the 80mhp on the 2hr drive out there. This thing held up great. Plus it looks sooo sexy!!

IMO its worth the $$ if you are willing to do the install yourself. Hopefully with this video you wont have any issues with that either!
