Aggressive ROUSH Styling
Enhance the styling and performance of your 13-14 Mustang 5.0 Coyote with the addition of the Roush Rear Valance & Axle Back Exhaust kit. This kit includes a Roush rear valance and a Roush axle back with square tips to give you both an aggressive new look and a throaty, louder exhaust tone. These high quality products are put together in this kit for an easy bolt on installation!
Roush Rear Valance
Add aggressive styling to the rear of your Ford Mustang with the ROUSH® 2013-2014 Mustang Rear Valance. This valance fits 2013-2014 Ford Mustangs with the Roush exhaust (V8 Part # 421410 / V6 Part # 421517). This part comes unpainted with a grain texture that resists chipping from impacts from rocks while driving. The ROUSH Rear Valance is made from high-strength TPO (thermal plastic olefin) for long lasting durability, and is made in the U.S.A. at ROUSH's own plastics manufacturing facility. The plastic is molded with high-pressure injection, the same process used by the automotive manufactures. This Mustang Valance kit is designed around original manufacturer CAD data for optimum quality and fit. All required mounting hardware is included.
Roush Axle Back Kit
Give your 2013 V8 Mustang the aggressive sound it deserves . This innovative new exhaust system from ROUSH features a hollow muffler chamber, as opposed to conventional fiberglass-packing. The result is a unique and less inhibited sound, increased air flow, and increased longevity (there is no fiberglass that will break-down with time). Another great feature of this system is the lack of the in-cockpit boom normally found with performance exhaust systems at cruising speeds. Not only does this exhaust sound good, it looks good as well. The dual chambered tips are made from high-quality 304 stainless steel and are finished with a chrome flashing process. Their shape finishes off the contours of the Roush rear Valance. Conventional chrome plating uses layers of bonded chemicals to achieve its shiny appearance, which are susceptible to cracking and flaking especially when exposed to high temperatures (like exhaust). However, the chrome flashing used in this system is bonded micro-porously to the metal surface, and is as a result impervious to cracking from localized damage. This method of chroming is also resistant to heat color change.

Published on 2014-03-03 If you are looking to give your 2013-14 Mustang an aggressive and unique look, you need the Roush Rear Valance and Axle Back Kit. The Roush rear valance (diffuser) is designed to give an aggressive new look to your S197 and comes designed to clear the Roush square style tips found on their axle back kits. This rear valance and square tip axleback kit were made popular on their powerful supercharged 5.0L Roush RS3.

The Roush mufflers featured on their Mustang Axle Back Kit will give your Stang a super aggressive exhaust tone that will match the new killer looks of the rear diffuser. We offer this Roush Axle Back & Valance Kit for GT/Boss 302/GT500s and V6 Mustangs.

Add unique styling and aggressive sound to your 2013 or '14 Mustang GT, with this Roush performance rear valance and axle back kit. Because of the large rectangular openings, the valance does require cutting of the original bumper cover. But much like other Roush products, detailed instructions and all needed hardware are included. Follow along, and we'll show you what is required as we install this kit on our 2014 Mustang GT.

Remove the three retaining nuts per tail light, and push the harness grommets through the body. And remove both the left hand, and right hand, tail lamps. Raise and support the rear of the car.
In the wheel well opening, at the front of the rear bumper cover on each side, there are three screws that need to be removed. Then release the center clips on both the left hand and right hand splash shield. From under the car, remove and discard the two retaining clips. Remove the four pin type retainers, two per side.
Remove the pin type retainers from each retaining arm. Pull outward on the left hand, and the right hand, side of the bumper, to release it from the body. And then fully remove the rear bumper cover. Unplug and pull the license light harness through the rear panel.
Remove the two reflectors and the center trim piece by depressing the retaining tabs. Cut out the provided template. Tape the template to the bumper cover. And mark the area to cut. Using a center punch, mark the center of the holes on the template.
Remove the template and use an 1/8 inch drill bit to drill the pilot holes. Finish the holes with a 1/4 inch drill bit. Cut off the area you mark, using the template. Mark the lines to be slotted on the bumper cover. And using a body saw, open up the slots.
Clean up your rough edges with a file and a sharp knife. Repeat all of these steps for the other side. Using the U-nut template, tape it in place on the back bumper cover. And using a center punch, mark the center of the holes on the template. Cut out the 9/16 and 3/8 holes out of the template, and trace the openings to be cut on the bumper cover. Repeat these steps for the other side.
Drill the marked pilot holes using an 1/8 inch drill bit. Then open the holes up, using a 3/8 drill bit. And on the slotted parts, use a 9/16 drill bit. Repeat these steps for the other side.

Mark your lines to be slotted, and use your body saw to open up the slots. Install the provided two J-clips into the holes on the rear bumper cover. Using the template for the right hand and left hand bumper cover mounts, hold it in place, and use your center punch to mark the center of the holes. Drill your 1/8 inch pilot hole, and finish opening the hole with a 3/8 bit.
Using rubbing alcohol, clean the bumper cover and the rear valence mating surfaces. Allow the alcohol to dry. And then apply 3M Adhesion Promoter to the rear valance, where the double-sided tape will be applied. Allow the adhesion promoter to dry for at least a minute. Install the double-sided tape on the backside of the rear valence, leaving the red film facing upward.
Peel the backing off of the double sided tape. Place the rear valance onto the bumper cover, and install the 12 U-nuts, two W-clips, and two eight millimeter bolts onto the back of the valance. Reinstall the two rear reflectors. Using your paint pen, it is also necessary to mark and trim a few areas on the rear bumper impact absorber.
Take your body saw and completely remove them from the rear bumper impact absorber. Lubricate the muffler hangers and rubber isolators. Loosen the two axle back to tailpipe retaining clamps. Remove each muffler from the car.
Slide your new muffler into the insulators, and slide your new clamp over the end of the axle back muffler, and attach it to the tailpipe loosely. Repeat this for the other side. Attach the bumper cover to the car. Remove the factory bolt from the mounting bracket.
Mark the center of the two holes on the new rear valance, on the center bumper cover mount. Drill two pilot holes with 1/8 inch drill bit, and finish up with a 1/4 inch drill bit. Install the supplied two J-clips. Install the supplied two eight millimeter bolts, and one factory bolt that you removed earlier.

Now you can lower your car, finish installing the rear bumper cover, and reinstall your tail lights. And that little bit of work, ladies and gentleman, was well worth the effort. Because not only does this thing look awesome, it sounds mean. And if you follow the instructions, and take your time, you'll have no problem getting this rear valance and exhaust cap back kit on your car.

This is by far the best experience I have ever had buying parts for my mustang. There is no other place for me, then LatemodelResto. I have bought multiple parts over multiple orders and have had nothing but a smile from ear to ear. Aaron Westerman was my contact person from LatemodelResto. I could not ask for a better customer service representative than him! He went above and beyond multiple times for me and made my experience with Latemodel the reason I keep coming back. LatemodelResto will continue being my #1 stop for my Mustang parts.
