I have a 2016 GT350 with the tech package, and I would really like to put an R spoiler on it. Any ideas who might make one or can you buy it from Ford?

I too had the same thoughts for my GT350, if you buy one from Ford they are $6900+.
There are a few options on Ebay from 3rd party manufacturers, be careful, Most if not all of these are coming out of China.
I bought and received one of these R spoilers this week, it is a nice part with good quality. It comes primed black, you need to paint it.

Let me how the fit and finish is. Do you have to remove your "dove tail" spoiler that comes on the car?

eBay ad states it is made in the USA, product description, etc would indicate whomever is writing for them did not get past the 10th grade or does not reside here.

The one I looked at on Ebay was about $900-1000 and is from co. called racing and carbon fiber out of china. The other caveat is that Ford parts diagram shows 2 holes in the trunk lid for locating studs for the tech and track spoilers that will be exposed by the R spoiler. Also a second hole may need to be drilled in the trunk lid for the R spoiler.

The R spoiler I have is mounted by 4 bolts on each side. It fits to the back-side boundaries of the trunk lid, so I expect it will cover some, if not all of the Tech spoiler holes. If there are any exposed holes in the center section, I will deal with that by installing a temporary plug or a permanent change.

Let us know what you find when you install it. Maybe some pics?

it's really going to throw off the aerodynamics....i saw a video on an R and they said if you want to order one, they run around $12,000 from Ford....sounds high, but I'm glad...i don't want anybody that doesn't have an R to buy parts and install them on a normal mustang....pisses me off to see a hood and nose from a GT500 on a POS 4 cyl mustang

The R has a bigger splitter up front to complement the increased downforce of the wing. So it would be wise to change out splitters as well.

I myself will need to get this car on the track and try it at high speed to see if there is any negative effect on the front end handling.
For now, everything is looking and working great. Here is a profile of the aftermarket spoiler from HCM Carbon.

Looks Good! What are your plans for the 3 holes in the decklid?
I made a rear brake light housing from a nylon block and mounted an LED light bar using the 3 holes for mounting and wire access.
The LED's are the brightest lights on the rear of the car, another safety feature. It works for me!!

They say that the front splitter and rear wing are tuned for the R. The R has 1/2in lower front spring and tiers are 30s are 1/2in lower than the 35's. 1in lower in front for the R. I changed the rear spoiler from the humming bird to the track pack aftermarket for 325. plus paint. Ford wants 1,400. for the same track pack spoiler plus paint. Bolts in same holes.

I was talking to SVT about this, and the first thing my rep said was to get the correct trunk lid (with holes for the R spoiler) to make it easier.

That's probably one of the most uniquely modified GT350's out there. Orange for the win also! :cool:

The factory GT350R rear wing indeed runs $12-13000. I know because I work for a ford store and verified it with parts.
My concern in getting a after market is having it fit right and will it have the same down force effect and be rigid enough to with stand
the G force

I think you would have to patch the holes in the middle of the trunk as well
