Review & Install Video
So Roush's 9-Bar Billet in black we've got here today is going to be a great option for any S197 owner out there that's looking to digit their factory-style fog light grille setup, maybe replace their worn out and faded equipment. Last but not least, just pick up some of that awesome and legendary Roush styling. Now, additionally, this should appeal to owners out there that are looking for a premium styling mod that's going to clean up your front end pretty nicely. You don't want to sacrifice quality or do any type of cutting to get this onto your car. I'll also throw it out there that this is going to warrant an easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter here, about 30 minutes' worth of labor. I'll show you how coming up soon. Now, a couple things I do want to throw out there is that if you are looking to retain your fog lights and tuck them behind the grille, I personally think it's a really cool-looking mod. It's very clean. You honestly just need to wedge them behind either here or here, and get creative with some zip ties. For the V6 owners out there, if you want to throw this onto your car, you're either going to need to pick up Roush's front fascia or factory-style GT front fascia. While Roush mentions this is something that's going to flow a little bit more air towards your radiator, I wouldn't be calling this a performance modification in the slightest. But I'd like to have it in the back of your head that it's going to be helping cooling it down when it counts. Manufactured out of billet aluminum, this is going to be completed in a gloss black finish. It was manufactured with OEM CAD data direct from Ford to ensure you're going to have a perfect fit. Now, if the grille is too bare for some, I know it might be, you can spice things up here by doing the fog lights behind, like I said, either in the center or spaced out. You can also throw a tri-bar pony logo anywhere on here if you've got 3M double-sided tape. Looks, materials, and quality aside here, guys, expect to be spending about $300 to $330 to get this onto your car. Really not a surprise when it comes to Roush products, as you're going to have that legendary name coming along with it, [inaudible] the quality and attention to detail here. Now, on the flipside of the equation, you are going to see other billet-style options back on the website start around $150. The main differences here is honestly, just going to be the brand name and the materials used. Install-wise, like I said earlier, you're looking at an easy one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter here, and about 30 minutes to an hour's worth of labor. Now, looking ahead here, guys, I'd just make sure to have a Phillips head, a flathead, and a basic socket set to get the job done.So to start, you're going to want to get the six plastic push tabs out of your rad cover, and then move that out of the way. You can then move on to removing your factory grille, which is going to be held in by eight tabs. It's going to be two on either side, and then four on the bottom. I'll throw it out there, if you're not going to be doing anything with your fog lights, make sure to tape off those harnesses, and then just zip tie them to your rad support. So once you're done there, guys, the difficult work is more or less out of the way.It's merely just going to be getting your new Roush grille in place using the supply clips and hardware to tighten everything back down. Button up that rad cover, give your work a good once over, and then you're good to go. That's going to wrap things up with my quick review of Roush's 9 Bar Billet Grille in black, fitting the '05 through '09 Mustang GT, which can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.
