If there is a lot of adhesive left on the trunk do yourself a favor and don't roll it off with your fingers. I made the mistake of heating the adhesive with a heat gun, then rolling it off with my thumbs. Biggest blisters of my life on both thumbs. 😂

Adhesive remover/glue gone works great and saves the fingers.

Thanks to everyone for the input! I used heat and a thin plastic wedge made for bodywork, wrapped in a microfiber cloth. Piece of cake. I found that applying the heat from the heat gun in through the underside was very effective.

Getting the residue off took a while. No big deal though.

PP2 spoiler is on too! :D

I’ll post a decent picture of the PP2 piece when I actually have a chance to take one. :D

That's a clean looking spoiler. And they look good rolling up on it. Does not change the lines of the rear, complements them.

Thanks! That’s exactly what I thought too. The OEM stuff is often really tasteful and well executed.
IMO, this spoiler looks purposeful and not overly dramatic. That’s how I prefer to live my life as well. :)

Hey what's the 4.09 final drive, you stick a taller gear back there?

Maybe I’ve got the terminology backwards but I have always called higher numerical final drive as a shorter gear... :). either way, the plan was to be able to enjoy the high revving Coyote’s power band a bit more and so far, it has accomplished that. The high end of the RPM band is much more accessible now and as you know, this motor loves 6k+.

IMO it’s a fantastic mod for manual trans cars. It’s a pretty involved job though.
