New Edge Splitter Options

2003 GT. 2.1L Kenne Bell SC.

I was wondering if any one has a solution for a splitter on a New Edge Mustang. I have been looking at the bumper covers that have the splitter as part of the mold (2000 Cobra R style). I suppose this is OK but the polyurethane ones I have seen in person are pretty flimsy. I don't know how much that lip will deflect at high speed. I suppose I could just install some cheap support rods...

I think what I would really like though is a 2003 - 2004 Terminator style bumper cover for better air flow to my heat exchanger. Only problem is, I cant find a race style splitter for this.

Any recommendations for a "universal" splitter that will work with the 03-04 Tremi bumper cover? Or does anyone know of a splitter specifically for this?

Finally, if there is not off the shelf solutions, got any pointers on how to make my own? Never done anything like that yet but could be fun...

my Roush has one made from 1/8" 6061 aluminum that i drive on the street. only prtorudes maybe 1.5" at most past the bumper and is really only there for protection so the bumper wont get destroyed. but i used to track the car with that one and had no issues other than it bowing some in the middle where it wasnt fastened thru the bumper like the sides were.

the race car has 15/32" birch plywood as a splitter. which has its own independent mounting frame separate from the bumper and utilizes 4 support rods to hold the leading edge since it proturdes 6" from the bumper face. the filler material between the bumper and the splitter is made from 0.040" aluminum sheet which is easily curavable to mate up with the bumper

both splitters can be cut with a jigsaw.

Thank you for this link. I must have searched hours with terms that should have pick this up but no dice. I like this for the 03/04 Cobra. $500...

I like this a lot. I like that it is something I can make and I like it because it is cost effective. I am curious how and what you made your frame from. It looks like it is dropped down from the bumper about 3"?

I found this on NASA Speed News regarding building your own splitter.

Yes, I have looked at this one and I do like it. But their shipping is an additional $235. So $520'ish. I can get a used OEM or new aftermarket 03/04 Cobra for about $200 shipped and then make my own splitter. From the earlier posts, I am really inspired to do this. Looks like a fun project. Lots of choices of materials.

the frame is made from 1" square aluminum tubing that has square tubes receivers on the radiator support which it slides into so it is removable off the car. the clevis, rod, and rod ends are all supplied from midwestcontrol.com which is the cheapest around and has the best selection for any size hardware.
in the photos you can see how it attaches to the car. the bumper uses dzus fasteners as well as the dive planes which attached to the splitter. the splitter and bumper all come off together in one piece.

i have a tubular radiator support but the same application could be used on a factory one.

let me know if you have more questions

P.S. it breaks easily and doesnt mess up the rest of the car too bad incase you slide through a gravel pit at 80 mph lol

Thanks again, 02 roush stage 3. I like what you have done. I might do some sort of highbred of what you have and the one on NASA Speed. https://nasaspeed.news/toolshed-engi...-own-splitter/

I like the Rivnut attachment of the standoff / splitter attachment. I cant quite figure out what you are attaching with the dzuz fastners. The dive planes?

I really like the idea of a an easily removable splitter. While car is in no way a DD, it is driven to the track.

yes the dzus fasteners hold on the dive planes. and actually hold the bumper to the car mounting points on the side and in between the headlights.

For DIY, try finding a NASCAR Car of Tomorrow splitter. Not sure if any are left out in the wild though.
