    Is this the same as the prepainted scoop? The shape of this item looks slightly different than the prepainted one. Are they the same, and will either one fit the 2013 GT premium yet? Thanks. This one looks more like the aftermarket shaped Roush scoop that is coming in November, which is what comes up on the Build your Battle Car site at the Ford website.


    • Yes, this is the same hood scoop as the painted version. Unfortunately, neither will fit the 2013 as they had a different hood than the 10-12 models.

      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!!!!!!

      Review from Hood Scoop - Unpainted (10-12 GT, V6)

      Wife sez it's too ...."Menacing and aggressive" ! [ Black 2010 GT- Auto]

      I like functional items. I was going to modify the back end of this scoop, open it up, and use it as a heat extractor. That way, the heat extractor's cut into the old hood would be covered up by this new scoop. Not enough vertical height to pull that idea off. It was suggested to me by my favourite paint shop not to buy a pre-painted scoop, since there well may be 12 x shades of the same black..esp with a 2+ year old car that sits outside all year long. They colour matched it dead on. I had it installed by a local custom shop a week later. The fellow there had done a lot of custom work, including a lot of mustang hood scoops. I told him about the reviews and the lousy supplied template. He agreed, and used a FULL SIZED template he made, just for this install. I also told him to use loctite on the 4 x supplied 10-32 machine screws and 4 x flat washer's. The scoop comes with double sided tape, that lines all 4 x sides, already installed. I wouldn't trust tape alone to hold a scoop on. Without loctite, no doubt the screws would eventually loosen up. The last thing I need, is a scoop coming off at 100+ mph ! The install took almost 2 hrs. The seam down the middle of the scoop lines up dead on with both the seam on the the hood itself..and also the seam on my new CDC front lower chin spoiler. If done right, there should be a small lip running down each side of the scoop. The hood liner has to be removed, and also re-installed, so you can get the screws installed. The windshield washer's are recessed into the back end of the stock hood.... and fed via a small diam black tube in the upper left hand corner. Be careful, as the back 2 x new screw holes [closest to the windshield] are close to the windshield washer nozzles. OK, it's still a fake, non functional hood scoop, but man does it look wicked, the best of the fake hood scoops. Mine came with a black [not silver as depicted in AM's pix] 'grate'..that had double sided tape on the back side of it. The grate is supposed to get installed onto the front end of the scoop. Since the car is black already, and the grate is recessed quite away's back from the leading edge, it was agreed by myself and the custom shop, to leave the supplied grate.. OFF. The paint shop had done a superb paint job on the scoop, and with the grate left OFF, it actually looks way better. You would swear there was an actual opening. Being recessed so far back, and with a slight downward slope, the recess is always in a shadow anyway, which makes it darker still. The black plastic 'grate', if installed, would in my case make it really look fake. The scoop is just the right height too. I had looked at cowl hoods and decided I didn't want anything too high.... since I DON'T want my forward vision / line of site, restricted in any way. This scoop is just under 1" high at the back end, doesn't restrict your vision at all, and folks really take notice...esp when used in conjunction with the CDC front lower lip spoiler. At the very most, some will want to raise the driver's seat by .25" - .5" . It may be fake, BUT the blower under the hood plus grille fed CAI sure as heck isn't. I also added Roush side air splitter's and a 2012 shelby rear spoiler [comes with a gurney flap] + 2012 shelby rear lower diffuser + Ford racing FRS-500 mufflers. Also chrome [staggered] deep dish bullitt wheels + 255/275 nitto NT-555 rubber. Mash the gas pedal, instant boost, and folks will no longer be guessing. They will convince themselves your hood scoop is the real deal..if they can still see it through all the smoke. Non functional hood scoops have been around since the 60's. This one is big. It's the physiological effect on the guy beside you at the red light that counts....and it works.

      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 +".
