    Will 12" Lemans Stripes work with this scoop? I'm thinking of putting this scoop on my 2011 V6 convertible and I have the 12" matte black lemans stripes on the car. Will I be able to apply the stripes to match over the scoop? I have enough striping since I have the roof section left from the kit. Thanks!

    Is this the same scoop on the 2014 Monster Energy Mustang? This looks like the scoop that is used on Vaughn Gittin's Monster Energy Mustang. If it is, I was wandering would it fit my 2014 V6.

    Will this hood scoop fit onto a 2013 Mustang V6? I'm buying a 2013 Black Mustang V6 & thought this scoop would look great on it, but it didnt list 2013 as a model it would fit. Would love to get it if I new that it WOULD work on it.

    • The 2013s are going to have a different hood scoop than this one made for the 2010-2012 as the hoods did change slightly. Keep an eye out!

      Looks Good BUT

      Just my advice: SKIP IT ALL TOGETHER. Yes it looks cool but here what happened. 1. Ordered one two weeks ago and it came damage. AM sent replacement no problem. A++ 2. Got the replacement one this afternoon and began the install. 3. Worst installation instructions ever! It came with two set of instructions. One was a black and white copy and one was an AM color instructions. Both were missing steps, hard to follow, and simply written very poorly. 4. The templates are two 1/2 inch strips that you have to stick on to the hood and hope they align to the hood scoop. I would RECOMMEND to AM that they create a full template that lays down on the entire hood to align everything properly. Also the templates were really cheaply done! Furthermore, the templates are not 100% accurate as I measured and used a level to see - and they were off. Even as I got it all squared off. I had to drill multiple holes to get it to line up. 5. After 2.5 hours of cussing, sweating, drilling, and taping off the hood to get a proper alignment, I finally got it on. No Thanks to the included instructions or template. 6. Lastly beware: The metal shavings created as a result of drilling will scratch your paint on the surface. I was VERY careful on using a dustbuster to pick up the shavings and dusting it off, but I could not get every grain and when I went to clean up....tiny surface swirl scratches My recommendation to AM is create an entire hood template that covers the entire hood not these cheap 1/2 inch strips that barely stick on to the hood. That way it not only protects the hood but makes lining up the drill holes to the screw holds much easier. Until AM does this, I say skip this product. I tore up my hood a little bit but luckily most of it is now covered by the hood scoop. The only positive is that it looks great on it.....not sure its worth the $399 + Trouble + hood damage.

      great fit, paint job needs work

      this is the second scoop i ordered from A.M. the first had chipped paint, possibly from shipping and A.M. sent me out a new one asap, great service. the second scoop was installed today and it was a great fit, even and flat on all four sides. but once attached and out in the sunlight the paint just wasnt as good as the factory paint job. its just wasnt smooth and shiny as the car. the shop that did the install said it could be taken care of with some wet sanding and buffing. so more work is needed. great fit scoop not worth the money for the paint.

      Nice product

      this was my second hood scoop, my first one did not require bolts and flew off. This was a good product and the paint was ok. When you install this the tempeltes are not the best so I had to make a custom one so I could drill the hole. Just make sure you measure everything and do not wipe the metal shavings into your paint. TAKE YOUR TIME & DO NOT RUSH!!!!!!

      Awsome promised look, horrible experience

      This review is not different than the bad reviews this product has already received on this website. It all started with the shipping of the first scoop. It was damaged on 2 corners and had a crack on the sides. I immediately called customer support and they immediately shipped a hood out and received it early next week. The quality of the pain job on the second scoop was less than stellar. The installation instructions are horrible. Like people have said, the size of the whole was too small and the template that was provided is a joke. After some frustrating times installing this scoop, it was finally on. It has a great aggressive look to it. The next day, I noticed that the corners of the scoop were coming off the hood. I installed the hood exactly like instructed and the 3m tape was not strong enough. I ended up taking my car to a paint and body shop to fix. Per the reputable body shop, the scoop was not true and that is the reason why it keeps lifting on the sides/corners. I will be picking up the car with the solution they came up with to make the scoop and hood look as intended. Overall, this turned out to be expensive project due to the craftsmanship of the product that American Muscle sold to me. I would not recommend this product unless you plan on spending more money/time to make it a solid install.

      Almost Perfect

      I love almost everything about the scoop I purchased from American Muscle. It is a great addition to my 5.0. The paint matches the factory UA Black perfectly. Cost was great in comparison with the Ford OEM part. I had the scoop installed two weeks ago, and in that time, I've found one reason to make complaint: the adhesive has begun coming loose of the hood most of the way around the scoop. It probably wouldn't be so noticeable if my car weren't black. Since it IS black, it's an eyesore for white adhesive to be seen everywhere the scoop meets the hood. To be fair, there are several factors that could be causing this: 1.) It's been above 100 degrees here for weeks, 2.) bad adhesive, 3.) bad shop installation. I'm not sure where to go to get this situation rectified, as I love everything about the scoop except the problem I'm having with the adhesive. I'd really like to give it a perfect review.

      Great look!

      Great agressive look. The AM site says that advanced mechanical skills are required but actually all you need to know how is how to drill a hole in the hood. This is a little scary but nothing else. I plan to add side scoops as combination would look even better. I received 2 different installation instructions with the scoop and it was kind of confusing. The color one was not completed. There was nothing about the drilling and some steps were repeated. I think it was a misprint. My Stang was kept outside for 2 years and when I installed the scoop I noticed a color difference. The hood scoop was a little darker. I am not sure if it is because of the age or because the paint difference. Other than that, the quality is exceptional. It looks awasome.

      take it from a body man

      the product itself is great... the template is horrable.... take the mounting screws an put them thew the cardboard box it came in ... now trace the scoop an then cut the cardboard outline to make a perfect template... as you get the scoup in the correct position take a marker to find the ideal poss for the holes.... never leave raw metal from the holes so taper the top of the hood holes an from the bottom give the holes a good shot of primer to prevent rust.. take your time to measure correctly an should take about 1.5 hours.... I must say I did order the scoop an it had a chip from shipping an returned it an American muscle had another one in my shop in 3 days.. great customer service

      Pay a pro

      After a long debate with myself, I ordered this scoop for my 2011 Mustang GT. It arrived quickly from American Muscle (everything I order from them does) and I had the hood installed by my favorite body shop. They only charged me 1.5 hours labor plus tax to do so (total was around $140). The hood looks great but there is a slight rise on the left rear corner of the hood(left when facing the car). I got some double-sided 3M tape and applied it to the small gap (about 3/16 of an inch) and then put pressure on the scoop w/ two small Quick Grips. So far things seem to be holding. The wife says the car with the scoop looks "snottier". This is a good thing. The color match was great. Other than the small gap, I would rate the scoop "Good +".

      Color match was perfect . Thought they had missed side radiuses but it turned out to be polishing compound residue.

      Pre-painted hood scoop

      There were a number of issues with the installation instructions, first and foremost the required drill bit size is incorrect. AM & manufacturers instructions state 3/16th drill bit. This way too small you cannot even get the bolts through that hole. I had to use an 11/32 drill bit just to get the bolts through and a 3/8ths for corrections. Another problem the locater strips the holes were not centered so this left the the side flaps that are needed to tape over the scoop then onto the hood when you remove the scoop for drilling too short. Due to the shortened lengths it made creating drill points difficult. This ultimately led to mis-alignment issues when time came to bolt up the scoop. Due to the materials used also with the locater strips and packaging you will need to pull them tight to keep the location when placed on the hood, its hard to do when they are all bent up by rolling them to put them in the bag. My scoop came without the honeycomb strip or alcohol prep pads. Some items you should think about when you are using these strips. * One its a good idea to thread the bolts into the scoop through the strips pull them taut (carefully) and tape them to the scoop, and forget about using the tape on them to the hole as when you pull the scoop off them there is too much slack in the strip due to it not being perfectly strait and taut. You will be off a couple of milometers due to this. * If you happen to be off by only a small bit can almost thread but not strait, do not try to lengthen the hole just drill a size larger than needed it will give you some wiggle room for adjustment of both the scoop and the bolt if needed. * Follow the AM instructions generally but follow the scoop placement instructions from the black and white instructions in the plastic bag specifically as they they have you only peel the corners from the double sided tape then place the scoop and thread the bolts then before tightening you pull the backing completely off when its nearly in place. the benefi to doing this is its far easier to position and shift the scoop around this way then via the AM instructions that have you fully remove the backing first. After the install is completed after many adjustments via the AM way and corrections I got it comepleted. It looks great, it also looks factory which is the look I wanted. 5 stars for the product design, and its finish was very good, 1 star for the missing items, and poorly accurate and poorly written instructions by both AM and the maker.
