      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanMuscle, and today we're gonna be taking a closer look at the Anderson Composite Type-SN SuperSnake Style Hood in Carbon Fiber fitting all '18 and newer GTs and EcoBoosts. Now, this is gonna be a great option if you're a carbon fiber fan that's looking to pay a little bit extra to mimic that SuperSnake styling while at the same time obviously saving a little bit of weight over that factory aluminum hood.So what do we have going on here with the Anderson SN SuperSnake Hood? Obviously let's talk build quality first. You're looking at a whole lot of carbon fiber here. Double-sided, really tight weave from Anderson. Good stuff. Gonna save you a little bit of weight over that factory aluminum hood. This one only tipping the scales at about 23 pounds. Any weight savings goes a long way, especially if you plan on taking your Mustang to a track day tearing up some back roads. That is always a huge plus.This hood is finished in a high gloss. You can leave it just like that if you like the look of the raw carbon fiber, which I'm a fan of personally. If you had the carbon fiber pack on your '18 or newer GT, I think this is gonna fit right in. If you are the type of guy that likes to color match, you absolutely can do that. This whole thing is paintable including these grilles in the scoops as well.Design is gonna be pretty awesome if you ask me. We have these two nostrils up at the front here and the two heat extractors at the back which is gonna mimic the Shelby SuperSnake, which I really liked that style, personally. All those scoops and inlets are completely functional as well.Now if that Super snake Style is not for you, Anderson definitely does have you covered. They have options ranging from the OEM 2020 GT500, GT350 heat extractor, ram-air and cowl induction as well. One of those designs should have you covered and should fit your style and of course, they're all done in awesome carbon fiber.Now, there are a couple of things I want to touch on about this hood. First thing's first, windshield washers are going to completely transfer over, no need for a relocation kit. You can reuse the factory stuff and closes completely for that. We're gonna show you how that's done in just a second here.Secondly, I do want to touch on the fact that this hood is not compatible with any hood struts. They're designed to take the extra weight of the aluminum hood, carbon fiber being a little bit lighter. That is not going to work out, so no hood struts on the Anderson hood.Now lastly, if you do want to keep your warranty intact, you will also have to pick up the heat shield for the underside of this hood at an extra cost. Pricing is gonna fall right around the $1,600 mark. If you're a fan of carbon, that is definitely well worth it. Of course, you do get a little bit of functionality with the weight savings and the functional air inlet as well.The install here is gonna be really, really simple. I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. It should take you at most an hour with nothing but some basic hand tools, no modification required. A lot of stuff is going to transfer over such as the latch at the front and the washer sprayers. So without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done.Tools you'll need for this install include a ratchet, 10-millimeter socket, and a trim panel removal tool. So over by our '18 GT. Getting the hood off is a relatively simple process. It's only held on with about four nuts, which makes it really, really easy to remove. But before we do, we have to unplug our washer jet hose and that is underneath this heat blanket here. This is held on with a couple of push pins. We're just gonna use the trim panel removal tool to get those out of the way. We're missing a few. There's about 14 but they're all going to be the same exact process. And with all those out of the way, we can go ahead and remove the heat blanket.So in this shot, you can see the washer nozzle. It's right at this leading edge of the hood. To unpop that we're just gonna pull down from the front like so, and this is too big to actually thread back up into the hood. And so what we're gonna do is pull down the hose here and then around so you can see. I'm just going to separate the two at the bottom right there. Push that hose up through the hood and pull it out of the top. And we can go ahead and do the same thing over on the passenger side. And just like the heat blanket, that hose is held in with a bunch of push pins, trim panel removal tool to get those out of the way.So now we just have to remove the hood. Like I've said earlier, that is really, really easy, 2 10-millimeter nuts on either side. We're gonna take one completely off and leave one just a couple of threads on. Then you can grab a buddy, unthread the rest of that nut and take the hood off the Mustang. Now, one thing I like to do just in case is I like to throw a rag sort of in between the hood and the glass right here just in case. Usually, they don't slide that far but you know don't want to scratch up the car.So now that we have our Anderson hood completely ready to go, ready to head over to our Mustang, I figured now would be the perfect time to stop down, bring in our old factory hood and sit it next to our new hood and draw some comparisons between these two. First thing's first, the looks. This is going to be way different. That carbon fiber is way lighter than that factory aluminum. It looks pretty cool too. Again though, you can paint over this if you don't like that carbon fiber weave sort of look. Now also the scoops are gonna be a little bit different. Heat extractors are moved from the front up to the back. We do have that paintable mesh grille and the SuperSnake inlet up at the front again with another paintable mesh grille.One thing I do want to mention about the design here on the factory hood, you can see this sort of hip. I don't really like that. I'm not really a fan of that. I think this Anderson hood is gonna flow a lot better with this straight line that is going to lead up to the fangs in the grille and it's gonna look a little bit more complete instead of that wavy sort of body line you have on the factory hood. That is a small piece, but something that I definitely noticed and I don't like about my own '18 GT and the Anderson is going to fix that. Now, all in all, I think the Anderson does a great job at sort of speaking that factory design language. Looks right at home on the front of the Mustang and I think all the differences make for a huge improvement over that factory hood.So without any further ado, we're gonna lift this up. I'm gonna put on some gloves, that carbon fiber can sorta catch you out and stick you, so be careful with that. We're gonna line this up with our brackets and then bolt it down using a 10-millimeter socket.So we have these nuts started. What we're gonna do is take a 10-millimeter socket, tighten them down, and doing our best to sort of aim for the middle. I'm gonna go a little bit higher as well just to be on the safe side and these will probably need a little bit of adjustment later on. And then we can do the same thing over on the other side.So the only thing we're going to have to re-install now is our sprayer nozzles. They're gonna drop in right through these holes right here and poke out on the other side at which point go ahead and drop on the actual jet part and then that is gonna back out, and line up and click in like so. And we're gonna go ahead and do the same thing over on the other side as well.So now this thing is installed, I'm going to very, very gently shut the hood and at the same time make sure this aligns with the grille, the fenders, and it doesn't touch any of the body panels. If your hood does need further adjustment, you can always loosen up those nuts, reposition and then tighten it back down.That's gonna do it for my review and install of the Anderson Composites Type-SN SuperSnake Style Hood in Carbon Fiber fitting all '18 and newer GTs and EcoBoosts. As always, guys, thank you so much for watching. Keep it right here at AmericanMuscle for all things Mustang.

        Beautiful

        This hood is beautiful and well built. A huge increase in air flow for my supercharged 2018 GT which can get hot fast. You will have to add some form of heat protection to protect that beautiful finish, but that is easy and cheap to do. Great buy.

        Carbon Fiber Hood Gets Good Reviews

        With the help from a friend, recommended, we removed the OEM hood, transferred the latch system, installed a heat shield and installed the Carbon Fiber Anderson Composites Type-SN SuperSnake Style Hood. The fit was great. We've done three car shows since and everyone loved the new hood and wanted to know where I got it.

      It states good pins are required. Are talking about the pins to hold the heat shield on?

      • Functional hood pins that secure the hood to the vehicle are required.

      does my factory heat shield fit on this hood? the description says “heat shield Hood pins recommended”. just would like to know where to find them.

      • You should not experience any fitment issues with an otherwise stock Mustang so you will be good to go on the heat shield. We currently do not offer hood pins on the site.
