05 07 Radiator air deflector in an 00-04?

Attached is a pic showing the 05 07 Radiator air deflector front bumper shield ( Ford part number 8327B). Can this be fitted to an 00-04? Has anyone done it?

You should still be able to get the 00-04 one.......I think.

Thanks for the suggestion but I'd like to have the '05-'07 deflector because it wraps around and helps support the bottom of the bumper cover. The earlier model is just a small rectangle in front of the radiator and it needs side supports that nobody has anymore.

Hmmm...

My '04 ZTS sedan has a "deflector" that fills the whole front bottom area, like the one you pictured for '05-'07

Thanks sailor! Based on what you said and some pm exchange with Will aka “misfire” I think the ’05-’07 radiator air deflector front bumper shield will fit my ’00 wagon. So, along with some other parts, I’ve ordered one from rockauto. It’s ~$20 but the shipping is another $18 YIKES! Well, at least it will be free of “road rash” like those I’ve seen in local scrap yards.

How did this work for you? I'm thinking about adding one to my SVT for a little more MPG, it's cheap enough at the junkyard to buy and play with.

I put something like this on my Mustang for more efficient cooling and I got a little more MPG as an unexpected side effect.

For the most part, yes. Right now its hanging on by the fasteners in green, those are a direct fit. I suspected it might be too short in the front, and it is, the non-SVT bumper might not have this problem. I also need to make a little clearance for the header.

I can pull it forward and I think the two in yellow will fit in existing bolt holes, but I wont be able to use the three fasteners in the center. On the flipside it will be away from the header. The ones in red are too short no matter what.

I left the little stock deflector up there, it doesn't interfere and it directs air into the radiator.

This is good to know thank you, so you took out the stock deflector on the SVT "the little plastic that's held in by 4 or 5 pushin plastic pins....and how much MPG increase have you seen on the SVT?
