    Excuse the memorable quote from the classic 1980 movie "Airplane." Showing my age here.

    Excluding the rare LS cars .........I'm not seeing much difference in specs between the 2012 & 2013 Boss, at least not under the hood. The interior is also very similar but for the 2013 Ford Sync.

    The big difference looks like it's on the outside: decal / graphics, grill, headlamps, taillights, side sills, hood extractor etc.... seem to be the most noticeable differences.

    In a continued effort in doing my due diligence, my question is about the front splitter. From what I see (at least in my eye online and in person) there seems to be distinct difference between the 2012 and 2013 front splitter. Again, aside from the LS ........is there a difference between the 2012 and 2013 splitter(s) ? What's the standard clearance on each year (for cars that have not been lowered?) Does iit seem like the 2012 is lower ? and that does it seem like there's an extra "layer" of front end splitter on the 2012 car ?

    Your knowledge on matters like this continues to be much appreciated for a guy just trying to find the right Boss. Thanks Marc in S FL.

    My 2012 LS front splitter has 5 3/4 inches of ground clearance.

    the LS cars are shipped with the standard front splitter, which I believe is the same clearance, it isn’t any thicker or thinner than the LS piece.
