Stalker. The Ram Air looks like it belongs on a Pontiac Trans Am.

Now the Ram Air IV to me looks more like a Firebird than the Ram Air, it looked more like the 72 Ranchero GT/Gran Torino Sport.
Ram Air IV

Gran Torino Sport


I liked the Mach 1 but it is a 2010-12

Ram Air, looks like the scoop on a 68 Shelby GT350. I am quite sure that is where the inspiration for the design came from.

I have the Stalker hood and it's great. Get it unpainted and get a local shop to match/blend the color for a better match.

If/when I ever get a Gen 1 Coyote (i'm in Europe for awhile so no idea) I would 100% get this hood.

How long ago did you have it painted? Others have said it comes back after a repaint. Alternate threads claim bad preparation at the factory not bad paint.

Don't know if the problem was ever identified or solved to everyone's satisfaction so perhaps the new hood is right for him

It is caused by iron contaminants trapped under the paint that cause corrosion of the aluminum. I had quite a few bubbles forming on the sides under the hood. They are filled with aluminum oxide powder. I simply scraped them off and they stopped. Aluminum will not corrode when exposed to air. If you catch them early you can stop the process before it gets to the top of the hood.

It was Iron Contaminants from the stamp and it gets in the bend in front and that is where the process starts according to my body guy.

It is already on the very front edge of the hood, too late.

I love that hood, contemplated switching the front end to a 2010-12 GT just to get it, then I looked at the parts list and the final price

Stalker. You could have the old hood repainted but I vote for the up-grade. Stalker
Or do both and switch back and forth to mess with peoples heads.
