Most Mustang mods either improve performance or improve your styling. It is a rare combination to find a Mustang part that gives you both performance and styling. The 2013-14 Mustang Roush upper grille does just that! Not only does it give you an aggressive race inspired look found on the Roush RS3 but it also improves your cooling performance by allowing more air flow into your radiator and engine compartment.

The Roush high flow upper grille features a 5 bar design that deletes your factory grille mounted fog lights. It increases air flow into the radiator by approximately 40%! It also features a super durable ABS construction for dependability and long life.

You can add some aggressive styling and improve the air flow to your 2013 or 2014 Mustang GT or V6 with a Roush performance upper grill. This grill is a great option if you've chosen another fog light mounting position, such as the Roush performance fog light kit.

The hardest part of this install is going to be removing the front bumper cover. Follow along and we'll show you just how easy that part of it is.

Installation begins by opening the hood and removing the eight pin retainers along with the upper radiator cover.

Remove the four pin retainers and the four 8 millimeter bolts from the top of the front bumper cover. Remove the three 7 millimeter outer lower bumper cover bolts on both the right-hand and the left-hand side. Remove the front six 8 millimeter bolts and the rear five 7 millimeter bolts from the lower air deflector.

Pull down and back to remove the lower air deflector from the car. Disconnect the two side marker light connectors-- one on the right and one on the left. Remove the ambient air temperature sensor by prying it out of place. Pull outward to unsnap the right-hand and left-hand sides of the bumper cover.

If equipped, disconnect the fog lamp connectors. Pull the bumper cover away from and off of your Mustang.

Remove the three 7 millimeter bolts from each fog light and remove the fog lights from the factory grill. Release the 14 retaining tabs around the perimeter of the factory grill and remove the grill from the bumper cover.

Take this opportunity to clean the opening.

Slide the new Roush grill into position and install the 14 supplied U-clips.

Reinstall your bumper cover, reversing the removal steps.

The Roush upper grill is an easy snap-in installation that requires no modifications and no painting, plus it fits both GT and V6. If you have original grill-mounted fog lights, you can either zip-tie your old pigtail harnesses out of the way or, if you're installing something like the Roush fog light kit, they need to be routed down and plugged in to the new fog light adapter harnesses.
