I just installed mine with the M oil cooler had to fabricate some brackets I just received the apr splitter for the GT500 bumper and I’m waiting on the cervini GT500 hood to arrive should help keep the heat down from the turbos

Please take some pictures after you install the splitter.

I think I5 is same as MP concepts version with aftermarket turn signals and they appear smaller. Ikon uses the one that allows you to retain your original 18+ fog/turn signal lamps.

An other thing! These splitters along the wheel arch and on the edge of the lip - can you leave them out or are they required to attach the bumper? I don't really like them and want to reconcider if they are necessary

Yeah it’s big lol it replaces the belly pan

yes it’s the MP concept bumper same as American muscle

I didn’t order the cheap i5 lights with it I went with opt7 looks cleaner than factory and other options available.

Yes and no on the side wheel splitter question I was hoping you could leave the bottom peace and do away with the ugly part that goes up the wheels but it’s one piece I’m considering getting the carbonfiber Anderson ones or maybe theirs a after market one that can be ran without the wheel guard.

I will take pictures of it completed next week I’m waiting on something to arrive Before I can put it all back together.

you can use your factory turns it mounts the same way on the back it just less parts then ikon. With this bumper I went with opt7 lights the factory lights are ugly in my opinion.

And yes the are the same bumper has the most concept molded in the bumper.

You would be able to remove the wheel guards. There is a piece there you would have to cut off sand and bondo. If you go to the right painter he will be able to do it. They did it at my work and were putting on the bumper tomorrow. I will upload pictures once its done.

To many damn splitters and IMO the 18+ front looks ugly as hell with the GT500 bumper. There’s almost no hope for that front end lol. Maybe it looks better in person idk

@GR1MBLE
I can't speak for Rinz and Fast but I agree with them on people seems just to be adding splitters and ending up with a car that looks like a staircase on the front.

Yours it perfect in my opinion! One splitter to make flat to the ground and removal of the side pieces with the wheel arches... That's exactly what I would do if I should redo the front on my 2020 when it arrives. Due to the love of the iconic running horse I'd add it to the front grill :like:

Because that just looks goofy as hell to me. The pic you posted looks ok. Like I Sadi might be different in person but most the pix I see look like this one, goofy

Looks nicer and more unique on yours without the side splitters and nice that your Stalker hood does mate decently with the bumper, Things can get bad when two different aftermarket bumpers/hoods mate sometimes. I am considering a stalker over the GT500, something more unique, just hope the adhesive louvers can stick on permanently over time.
