    Hey I’m Justin with, and I’m taking a closer look at this Unpainted and AmericanMuscle pre painted hood scoop, fitting all 2005-2009 Mustangs. This scoop is inspired by a similar scoop found on the 65 and 66 Shelby GT350, and when installed, really gives the S197 hood some much needed muscle. The scoop itself is constructed using ultra durable high impact plastic, and as I mentioned earlier is either available unpainted, or pre painted. This pre painted version does get sprayed right here at AmericanMuscle headquarters, using the same base and clear coat urethane paint Ford uses in their factories making for a perfect color match to your ride. In the box, you’ll find everything needed for the install, including the scoop itself, the detailed instructions, the drilling template, the 3M automotive tape, the 3M adhesion promoter, the alcohol prep pads, all the hardware, and finally the plastic insert. You will have to drill a few holes into the hood using the drilling template, just to get the scoop installed properly. Once you have the holes drilled, move over to the scoop itself, and prep the back of the scoop using the 3M adhesion promoter wherever the 3M tape will go. Once you have that done, remove the protective backing on the tape, and adhere the scoop carefully to your hood. Tighten up the screws and you’re pretty much good to go. I know it sounds a little daunting drilling into your hood, but you should have total confidence using the supplied template and the detailed instructions. When it’s all said and done, you should have the scoop installed in about an hour. So if you’re looking to add a little bit more muscle to the hood of your S197, and you’re a fan of that early Shelby styling, then be sure to check out one of these two options right here at

    Hood scoop paint I though I saw that you guys painted the hood scoops to our mustang colors. So why does it say unprinted on the scoop?


    • We offer the majority of our Pre-Painted Parts in their unpainted form as well. This product is the unpainted version. We do offer this one Pre-Painted. I've attached the link below for you. Hope this helps!

    Does this add-on allow are cause any leaks? I seen in the pictures that the hood scoop isn't perfectly flush with the hood. And being that you have to drill holes in the hood of you vehicle, does or will it cause or allow leaks to develop?? Thats a BIG concern for me.


    • I haven't had any problems with leaks, the fasteners that hold it there seem to doa very good job preventing that. Only thing I notice is water getting stuck there after washing it. So when you go for a ride a bit of water gets blown out. But if you stay adamant when drying it, it's a non issue.

      Hood Scoop

      No doubt this scoop makes my 06 GT Look much meaner and i love the look,but i have to say it doesn't fit perfectly.The scoop is flat whereas the hood has a slight curve in it. I would also suggest drilling the holes with a 1/4" bit instead of the recommended 7/32. Makes it easier to fit onto the hood.The bolts on the clips could stand to be another eightth inch longer too as it was pretty difficult to get them to come through far enough to get a couple of the nuts to start. Maybe this is because the scoop doesn't exactly follow the curve of the hood.Once i got the nuts on,tightening them helped the scoop fit.I am actually pretty happy with the scoop although this review may not sound like it.

      I ordered the scoop based on other reviews I saw here, and decided to take a chance on the pre-painted hood scoop. Fit and Finish was very good. Drilling holes in a perfectly good hood was unnerving, but the supplied template was right on. If you flatten the template out a couple of days before using helps eliminate any fold lines. Drilling the holes I used a smaller 3/16" bit as a pilot hole for the larger 7/32". creates a cleaner hole and won't chip the paint. The most difficult part of this installation, was removing the hood insulation and buttons. Most of them broke and I had to make a trip to the local autozone to pick up new ones ... $4 addition. I didn't have any issues with the front of the scoop not sitting flush. Take your time and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how well this scoop looks. I'll be adding more of the pre-painted parts as I modify. Get's two thumbs up.

      Painted scoop

      Excellent color match , mine is yellow and you would think it came new with the car! The actual fitment could be better though, the edges of the scoop base will have to be filed on an angle for it to fit flush or flat to the hood.The hood has a slight curve to it but the scoop appears to be designed to fit on a flat hood. It's installed now as is but I will remove and adjust it before driving it in the spring.

      Review from Hood Scoop - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)

      perfect retro style

      I think they nailed the retro look with this hood scoop. I couldn't have asked for a easier installation, but be sure to pick up a few extra trim retainers for the hood liner...I broke about half of mine getting them out. You are gonna love it.

      Nice Mod

      Well made, the pre painted scoop matched the cars paint perfectly. I would strongly recommend applying a rust inhibitor or paint to the mounting holes on the hood to prevent the formation of rust.

      Hood Scoop

      I got this shipped to me pretty fast and as soon as they got to my house I started working on it. I was a little scared of drilling holes on my hood but with the template it all worked out. Its a little complicated to make the screws go in at the same time because the 3m tape might get stuck on there and makes it a pain but after a while I was able to get them right. It looks awesome and I recommend it to any mustang owner.

      Great paint job looks great on my 2006 mustang but i think it could fit better around the front part of the scoop but outher than that its a good product.

      Nice Lookin

      Nice addition to my 2005 V6. The rear section secures nicely, but the front gets lifted by air at speeds over 50. I used an epoxy to attach two clips under the front of the nose to secure it firmly. Check the fit before applying the 3 M tape. The template was pretty close , but the plastic scoop is and clips are a little flexible as to their position.
