eh that would increase overall drag no matter what, keep in mind I'm talking nominal differences here, but you may or may not notice a difference with the mpgs, more than likely you won't. Also, before you go on saying that there are no preformance mods for your bull take a look at this...... provided you have a vulcan and not the duratec. But the duratecs a race car already so HA

A friend of mine has a Maurader. Used to own a SHO too.

So which did you decide to do? I've only heard people who used the Mach one chin, picking the MUSTANG EDGE yr, the true ones.



He later painted his to match, and it looked good!

I think I may try to do the earlier ovally stangs though, see if there's a difference between the 2.

That's a Sable with a SHO front clip. (SableSal?)

You have a .3 drag co-efficient on a stock Taurus. this includes gens 3 and 4. (not sure about any other generations) This is extremely efficient, your average Jet Fighter gets roughly a .35-.37. Granted they need wings to lift them, but even modern day hybrids like the Hyundai Sonata hybrid have a .25 drag coefficient. If you start adding spoilers, and I assume chin spoilers would be even worse, you can kiss that buh-bye. I know they look nice, but even if they only give me a 1% decrease in my mpgs, that will be a constant drain on something that is purely cosmetic. If you are worried about your tires griping the road you'd be better off going with a wider tire since the taurus is pretty heavy anyways and really shouldn't need whatever downforce a chin spoiler would provide. Again, feel free but this is just my .02
Theoretically, it would lower drag a little bit. The more air you can keep from going under the car, the better (unless you're going to do a full belly-pan to smooth out the underside).
