Re: whole hood or just a scoop

I'm not sure what hoods are available for your year. Some of the hood scoops seem to flow really well, and others just look out of place. I'm a pretty big fan of the Cobra hoods.

The cowl hoods look sick on the S197's. That's gonna be a cosmetic mod for me as soon as the motor work is done.

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

Yes the 2.5 is the best. The 3" looks sick but its to big from behind the wheel. I will be doing the 2.5

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

99-04 side scoops look good IMO but on the S197's they look like crap. The stick on hood scoop is ok if it came that way from Ford like Spec said but I wouldn't do one if it wasn't already there.

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

I always like this one, sort of a new hood and scoop all in one...



The 05-09's have way more options for hoods and scoops...take a look at some of the ones available at American Muscle to get an idea...it's more of a personal preference.

Yah that's why most late model mustangs had plastic inserts in the scoops...hell even the 03/04 Mach 1 shaker that's actually "functional" doesn't really offer noteworthy performance gains.

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

2 1/2" cowl is my fav, but cost, fit and paint was a bit much for me at the time so I went with a Roush scoop. Looks classic, and I'm pretty happy with it.

Re: whole hood or just a scoop

yea, but dont cheap out on another brand and end up spending more to get it fitting and looking right IF it can be made to fit/look right.

Yes, I have heard horror stories about hoods not fitting and needing tons of prep and paint.....thats why I went with just the scoop on mine....the stock hood fits perfect.
