    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.

    Brian40 Year: 2008 Model: V6

    • 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.

    Can this work over stripes? Will it tear them off or not stick to them? and how does it look over top of stripes?

    Glitch Year: 2007 Model: V6

    • Heck yes...It does not fit tight to the hood at any point. There's LOTS of room for stripes!!!

      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.

      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.

      Hood Scoop

      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.

      Hood Scoop

      The paint is perfect but there is a gap between the scoop and the hood at the front of the scoop. The gap makes the scoop look cheap. I have attempted to tighten the bolts to try and seal it better but this has little effect. Any suggestions would be helpful. thanks

      Great, but difficult to get there...

      I felt compelled to write this review after actually dealing with this product. First off, now that it is on, it looks great. Definitely adds a meaner, more aggressive look to my sixer. That said, there were quite a few issues! I spent at least 3-5 hours on this product, which should have been an hour long job maximum. Now there are a few reasons for this. Primarily, the layout measurements are inaccurate. I flattened/pulled the paper until it was fully flattened, with not a single ripple. Drilled the holes precisely on the indicated locations. Yet, the bolts REFUSED to align, especially in the front. I had myself and two friends work on it (and yes, we are not new to this kind of stuff) It is necessary to push and pull on the different bolts/hoodscoop, in order to have them align. As we got closer to actually finishing, one of the bolts would always pop out, forcing us to remove the hood in order to place it back in its location. The other main problem is that the bolts are simply too short! It was eventually impossible to have one of the bolts slide through the hole, even though we finally managed to align it perfectly with the hole. So, my solution was to go buy my own LONGER bolts from Home depot. This required me to also buy new clips, as the bolts that come with the package may not be removed from the clips. Even though the bolts were long enough, we faced the problem that they continuously would jump off of the hoodscoop, forcing us to remove it and replace it. We eventually got sick of doing so, and decided to superglue the clips onto the hoodscoop in order to secure them. This did end up working. Finally, we were able to install the scoop, although there still exists visible spacing between the scoop and the hood (which isn't too drastic, but is still rather noticeable) There is definitely a possible way to avoid all of this hassle, and this would be to simply allow a screw to screw into the hoodscoop, through the hole from inside the hood. I personally believe this would make everything much simpler. SO! All this said, I would recommend that, before you purchase this scoop, go and purchase at LEAST: . A set of longer bolts ( I personally used 8/32 x 3/4" and they worked great) . Superglue in order to fasten the clips . Extra washers and nuts in case you lose some of the ones that come with the package All this should amount to approximately $5, but will save you hours of pointless trial and error and a big headache. My scoop now looks great, but the labor required (due to small malfunctions in the design) was rather unnecessary when it really should have only been an hour long project max. Also, the fasteners for the insulation are almost impossible to remove without breaking them, so pick up a few of those too. At least the shipping was on time.
