Hood Scoop

Has anyone put on one of the aftermarket type, and how much trouble is it.

No they generally get bolted to the hood.

I've heard they are a pain. Because you are drilling into your hood with metal shavings going everywhere.

I only heard roush and oem you need to drill I could be wrong but I know one of the aftermarket hood scoop requires no drilling. I'm buying a roush myself and just using 3m tape to install because the side scoops and louvers only use the 3m so I'm pretty sure it will hold the hood scoop down.

The hood scoop you might be talking about is that really tiny one that was sold? Looked like the old 05-09 hood scoops that were really tiny and funny looking?

The nicer ones need to be bolted down. The side scoupes and louvers don't really get a lot of tug from the air, the hood scoop will. This is probably why they get bolted down.

Also I'd rather not have a 350$ hood scoop come free and hit my windshield and who knows who else.

Lol true.. But some 3m tape is pretty strong I would have faith in it for holding down a fiberglass scoop.

For average driving probably yes. I'd never take it on a track though without it being bolted down.

Drilling holes in a hood is SCARY! Lol! But if you're careful (measure twice, drill once lol), it'll be that much more secure, and one less thing to worry about as you're driving along.

I was looking at doing something like this one: 2010 2012 Ford Mustang Hood Scoop GT or V6 Unpainted MSRP $249 99 | eBay which is an OEM part. You do need to paint it, and drill holes to install, but it mentions that it comes with a template for the holes to make it a bit easier as well as the hardware. Honestly, i'd be a bit nervous drilling into the hood, but if you do it right, use the correct bit type, it should be fine. I've heard that using a painters tape or masking tape over the drill hole, then drilling through the tape instead of directly onto the painted surface can help to make a nice clean hole and reduce splintering of the paint around the hole.
