Review & Installation Video

Hey everyone Justin here with and I’m checking out our checking out our very own AmericanMuscle 3” cowl hood for all 05-09 Mustangs. Cowl hoods have always been the go to aftermarket hoods for muscle cars, especially Mustangs. Chances are if you see any S197 sporting this hood, you know it means business. Our AmericanMuscle hoods feature quality craftsmanship at an affordable price. Each hood has been designed and produced to the highest level of precision, ensuring a perfect fit every time, using only the highest quality fiberglass. You will notice that our hoods do ship unpainted so you’ll definitely need to take it to your paint guy or body shop to have it prepped and color matched to your ride perfectly, like what we’ve done on our 07 GT. When it comes time to install your new hood you’ll find it extremely easy, thanks to the fact that this hood utilizes both your factory hood latch and hinge locations. The first step is to remove your factory hood and set it out of the way, you’ll want to grab your factory hood latch from that hood and transfer it over to your new cowl hood. Once you’ve done that grab a buddy and lower the new hood into place, being careful not to scratch your new paint. Once you get it into place you want to tighten up the two bolts on each of your hinges, and that’s it. Total install time should take you about an hour using standard hand tools. You’ll notice that this hood doesn’t have any holes for your factory squirter nozzles, making for a much cleaner look. That being said, this would be a great time to check out a CDC squirter nozzle relocation kit for your ride. If you want people to know that your Mustang shouldn’t be messed with, then you’ll definitely want to check out this 3” cowl hood from

      2 Top Rated Questions

      Squirter nozzles? Hi there, I know this hood doesn't have pre-drilled holes for the factory squirters and you recommend the wiper relocation kit, but is there any other way? I'd like to have a body shop drill holes for them but the cowl seems to wide at the top where the squirters should go. Any suggestions other than the wiper ones? Thanks.

      • Wiper relocation kit . Less issues that way. The hood could still be drilled for factory application.

      Functional hood pins? Other sites sell a very similar 3" cowl hood and all say functional hood pins are required for safety reasons. Does this particular hood have this requirement or is it safe to use without them?

      • It's recommended that you have them

          Bulging with pride

          So I got this hood through a mishap, but it turned out for the best. I selected another one (heat extractor) and it was back ordered, so the next choice in line was this one. It's not too tall, which I was hoping against. I was leaning towards the 4 inch, but I'm glad I settled on the 3. From inside the car there is a noticeable difference in view. You're going to loose some of your front passenger side, as well as your passenger fender, so beware on tight turns. It looks fantastic, and the paint job made all the difference. If you want a hood to set you apart, look no further. But again beware of the vision obstruction and the possibility of "illegal cowl hood height restriction" in your state!

          Bought this hood as an upgrade while my car was on the shop. After hitting a deer. Perfect condition, perfect fit! The shop had nothing but good things to say about the quality and fit. I definitely recommend if you want your s197 to look mean!

          Fits perfectly and easy to install

          I was worried that buying a fiberglass hood that I would have fitment issues. I took the hood to the local body shop to get painted and installed right at the body shop. Hood fits perfectly w/out any trimming. Only catch was that I had to use the screws that came with the hood in the box - the factory OEM bolts did not fit as well as the bolts that came with the hood in the box - make sure you don't throw those away. Really love the fit, finish, and final look. Thanks to American Muscle my car looks great!

          Excellent Hood with Great Value

          I purchased this hood to increase air flow through the engine compartment and also to have a more aggressive appearance. The fit was excellent. I took it to a paint shop and the paint guy said that the hood was a very high quality hood. He also suggested that I remove my hood struts to prevent crack formation in the fiberglass. I never really thought about this, but it makes sense as there is a constant load applied to the hood and over time can lead to cracks. Doing so also made the hood fit better. There have been a few questions on how much it will cost to get the hood painted. The estimate that I received to paint the hood a single color (with all the prep work, color matching, and clear coat) on both sides was about $500. This was with a 3 year warranty on the work. I am very happy with the hood and highly recommend this product.

          AMAZING UPGRADE!!!

          Amazing hood!!! Definitely my favorite exterior upgrade. Looks very aggressive and plenty of space for my Kenne Bell Supercharger. It went on very easily even with the Hood Strut Kit. Wave free fiberglass construction is correct and is very strong. The quality is great! I would definitely recommend this hood to others!

          AmericanMuscle 3in Cowl Hood

          The item is awesome, looked great after being painted and installed. Only one complaint when I first got the hood the corner of the hood closest to the driver windshield was chipped and cracked. It wasn't major the installer was able to fix it with no problem and was able to keep the flow from the fender to the hood on point. I would recommend this item helps set a more aggressive tone, great addition to my mustang for the price!

          Just as I wanted. Perfect!

          Not a problem at all. Installed in 30mins and looks great. The washer relocation kit is another story. That is not worth $5.00 and I payed $60.00 for and couple of sticky clips and some fish tank air hose. Not kidding, Rig it yourself and save the $60.00

          Fantastic Hood, but Not Street Legal

          After looking at hoods for months I chose this one because of the aggressive look and its overall popularity. The shop install went great, they told me they had never seen such a well crafted hood. The guy liked it so much he even offered to buy my ride! HOWEVER, after getting this hood installed I went to get my annual safety inspection and I got a big fat rejection sticker. Apparently 3 inches is too high to be street legal in VA. After this I immediately called AmericanMuscle to ask about this requirement. The rep stated that he had never heard of any such law in any state. I find it a little ridiculous that someone working for a company like AM would not have any knowledge of a safety inspection requirement like this one. I also find it annoying that there is no disclaimer about such requirements on the web page especially since there are no returns for freight items. I have seen plenty of daily drivers with this hood and I never heard of any safety inspection requirement until mine came along. The height requirements apparently vary by state, but I still think that there should be some sort of notice to the customer prior to purchasing this product.

          Best Hood I've seen

          I just got my 07 Mustang GT back from the painter and it is awesome! The Painter said it is the best Fiberglass hood he has ever painted. He said it was perfect right out of the box, which by they way it was also packaged awesome. Prep time was next to nothing, no waves, no problems. Added a set of Shelby Aluminum Hood Pins which was the perfect touch to finish it off. This hood looks super tough, one of the best things I've bought for my ride. Thanks American Muscle!

          The best looking hood out there for the 05-09 body style period!

          The body shop couldn't say enough good things about how well the hood was made and how little work they had to do to it! Only had to make some minor adjustments to my 20,000 mile, zero accident, 2008 GT to get it to fit perfectly! Wouldn't hesitate to buy another Kaenen product again!

          nice quality hood

          this hood fits great and is pretty straight for glass. my only issue was poor packing and two cracks in it from shipping; the shop had to repair. ive heard of big hassles getting paid on claims so just paid out of pocket for repairs. other than that a great product.

          This hood looks amazing, I had it professionally installed so they painted it also, but it would've been nice to have come pre-painted like a lot of American muscle products, but overall I love it!
