Hey everybody, Dave with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m here today with the Kaenen S281 style Saleen spoiler, shipped out unpainted and fits on all 94-98 Mustangs. Designed to have a perfect OEM fit, and made from lightweight fiberglass, this wing not only fits and looks great on your Mustang but won’t weigh you down in the process. Now what you should do is go ahead and have it test fitted on the car before you get it painted to make sure it does fit perfectly on your deck lid. Once you’re sure it fits perfectly, do what we did with our 98 GT, take it down the local body shop to have it prepped and painted to match your factory color. Included in the box is all the hardware you need for installation, and in fact, the most difficult part of installing this is going to be removing your factory wing. Once you’ve got the hardware out of there remember there’s still adhesive under the pedestals, take your time, remember this is meant to stay on there for years and years, but it will come off. Completely clean your deck lid of the old adhesive, before you go ahead and put your new spoiler on. From start to finish, you’re looking at about a 2 hour job. The sleek and cool styling of the S281 Saleen is by far one of my favorite car designs ever, and with this spoiler on the back of our 98 GT, I can’t help being reminded how awesome that car really is.

Misleading Pics: Beware that Customer Pics shown are likely pics of the Kaenen (previous supplier) as well as SpeedForm S281 spoilers (Current supplier). Look thru all of them and you will see the difference. When I searched for "Kaenen S281 spoiler", an American Muscle web page appears: (https://www.americanmuscle.com/kaenen-mustang-hoods.html) It is however, accurately listed as SpeedForm just below but still says Kaenen. As you can see when scrolling thru the customer pics, some spoiler left and right edges hug the body lines while others do not. The pics of the Blue mustang in the product description appears to have the Kaenen S281 style spoiler. The SpeedForm S281 style spoiler that I ordered had such a big gap that my wife could place her hand between the spoiler and the top of the fender near each sides tip. The rear most edge seemed slightly more flat or seemed to lay down more than the Saleen and Kaenen did. Lastly the intended mounting holes formed in the wing appeared to have had sheet metal screws placed in during the forming process sheet metal screws were supplied for mounting hardware. The Kaenen brand uses 1/4-20 thread inserts and 1/4-20 bolts included. The holes in the SpeedForm spoiler did not line up for 3 holes in my trunk lid and the one that did was only half showing. I believe the spoiler that I received was not just a bad rarity, as I've seen many reviews here and on other sites mentioning the same issues. While I do not know why American Muscle doesn't partner with Kaenen any longer, I really wish they would. I had to call Kaenen directly to get a great fitting spoiler. My American Muscle customer service experience was great. The rep was very polite and thorough. She handled my return and refund with no issues.Helpful (6)

Doesn't follow body lines.
In the pictures, it follows the horizontal body line on the rear quarter panel but both of the ones that I received didn't. The first one didn't look align well at all so I sent it back (no problems with customer service). The second one was better but still didn't look like the pictures.Helpful (1)

Pretty decent spoiler...
Like it way better than the stock GT wing. Spoiler is pretty nice, but forward locating holes are "off". Mine had 2 small depressions requiring minor filling. The contoured ends over the quarter panels are a bit different R vs L, a little work required there. Comes in a light grey primer, with sheet-metal screws for mounting; I'm epoxying studs after correcting the mounting locations. The rubber seal provided is a nice touch.Helpful (2)

This covers the holes in the stock spoiler correct? How does it mount? Would I need to drill more holes in the trunk?
Yes, this covers up any holes that your stock spoiler would have left. The spoiler reuses the 4 factory bolt holes as well as quality double sided tape when you do the install. There should be no need to drill any more holes in your trunk lid to install this spoiler.
My Mustang is currently wingless. Does this wing include mounting templates?
Unfortunately this spoiler does not come with a mounting template. Professional installation is recommended to assure the wing spoiler is properly aligned and mounted.
How do you answer the poor reviews? I am thinking about buying one, but now I am having doubts.
Will this fit 98 cobras and will it use factory holes from the cobra spoiler?
Will this fit my '94 Saleen Mustang with a convertible top?
The SpeedForm Saleen S281 Style Rear Spoiler is designed to fit 94-98 V6 and GT model mustangs.
Hello! The SpeedForm Saleen S281 Style Rear Spoiler does sit tight against the quarter panels.
The SpeedForm Saleen S281 Style Rear Spoiler will delete your 1995 Cobra's Third brake light, which will effect the legality of driving your Mustang on the street, as the third brake light is legally required.
This will fit and cover the stock rear spoiler holes on your 1994 Cobra.
It is a gray primmer ready for sanding and painting.
Absolutely, This covers up any holes that your stock spoiler would have left. Only use quality double sided tape when you do install as well as clean and prep the surface for the installation!
