Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and I’m checking out this hood scoop option from MMD fitting all 05-09 Mustangs, available in your choice of either pre painted, or unpainted. If you didn’t know, MMD is an industry leader in producing a wide variety of styling accessories for your Mustang, designed to separate your ride from the rest. This scoop from MMD is for the Mustang owner who is looking to give his or her S197 a look similar to the hood scoop found on all 07-09 California specials. If you’re familiar with these cars, then you know they had some subtle styling differences when compared to other models, but those differences were enough to separate the California specials from other models, thanks to styling parts like this hood scoop. This hood was designed using original Ford CAD data, to achieve a fit that really does suit the hood of the S197 perfectly. As for the construction, MMD went with an extremely lightweight and durable ABS plastic construction for the build, that again is offered in two different finish options. If you’re looking to save a few bucks and you have a connection with your local paint shop, then the unpainted choice may be a better option, however if you’re the majority of Mustang owners out there, and you know how much of a pain it is to have parts sprayed and get it matched correctly, then you should definitely check out one of our pre painted options. You can check out a complete list of the color options available for this particular scoop by clicking the link below and going to AmericanMuscle.com, and see for yourself. All of our pre painted parts do get sprayed right here at AmericanMuscle headquarters, using the same base and clear coat that Ford uses on their Mustangs, so basically you can expect a perfect color match right out of the box. The package includes everything you see here, including the scoop itself, the grille insert, the drilling template, 3M automotive tape, 3M adhesion promoter, alcohol prep pads, and finally the installation hardware. You will have to drill a few holes into your hood to get this scoop installed properly, once you do have your holes drilled, go ahead and move over to the back side of the scoop and start to prep that first using the alcohol prep pads and then the 3M adhesion promoter. After that go ahead and install the 3M tape to both the back side of the scoop itself, and to the grille insert, install that grille insert onto the scoop, and then place that scoop on the hood surface, go ahead and tighten up the hardware underneath the hood, and you should be good to go. I know it’s a little daunting drilling into your hood, but you should have total confidence thanks to the included template, that should allow you to get this job done in about an hour’s time from start to finish. So if you’re looking to add a little more muscle to the hood of your S197, that is reminiscent of the 07-09 California specials, then be sure to check out one of these hood scoop options from MMD, available at AmericanMuscle.com, and if you want to check out the rest of MMD’s lineup, go ahead and click the link below or up in the corner to subscribe to our YouTube channel, and keep an eye out for the newest and coolest parts available for your late generation Mustang.

Here's the scoop
Very nice, well painted but don't match color well took to body shop and was told that the paint had more blue and not enough green to match car. They would need to scan paint on car to blend paint to match and repaint. Waiting on body shop to let me know if they are interested in doing that and fixing a spot of surface rust on roof of carHelpful (0)

08 Mustang GT 3.4 V8 Shipping was fast. Instructions and fit pattern were right on. Looks like factory installation, the black color goes with my 08 Mustang's silver finish, now it looks like a real muscle car. A real eye catcher. Also it's very sturdy built, a very good product..Helpful (0)

MMD Hood scoop
I have the mmd hood scoop 3 stars because it doesn’t quite lay flat enough. Also after reading the review’s of others, no one mentioned that the studs are to short. When I pre fitted the scoop I didn’t realize the studs did not come all the way through the hood before it was stuck with the 3m tape. To late now. Not sure if mine was packaged with the wrong ones or not. This was a pain in the .... anyway it’s on the car and looks good.Helpful (0)

The product is great,. The template is off. Lucky I'm a master tech. And made it work. I also bought a rear window louver which is a peice of junk. I had to put fiberglass filler on the back side of the louvers to stop them from vibrating and making noiseHelpful (1)

What colour does the unpainted part come in? I have a light blue/matte black theme going and was wondering if it comes unpainted in matte black? Could save me some money and look good, thanks.
Hi, what are the dimension of the scoop??? I just want to find out a right one that fit in my mustang , I got and used hood but with some holes for a previous scoop ( 13 1/4 inch x 18 1/4) and I want to cover tor match those holes with a new scoop...
Hey Miguel, This Unpainted MMD Hood Scoop measures 21-1/2" x 19-1/4" x 2"
Is it functional like does it actually grab air
This hood scoop is more of a cosmetic upgrade.
Two questions: If I was foolish enough to not screw this down, could it come off at 100 MPH causing an accident? Is it dishwasher safe?
We strongly suggest against not using all the supplied hardware to prevent any possibility of the scoop becoming loose or even falling off while driving. The MMD Hood Scoop is not dishwasher safe. The heat produced by the modern dishwasher will cause the ABS to fold and bend which can break the material and damage the paint applied the the scoop.
Is there any way to get a printable drill template? There wasn't one included in my packaging and I'd hate to go at this guessing how things should line up.
A template should be included in the box for any given order. If you ever place an order and do not receive everything intended to arrive in the box, please contact our customer service team directly so they can assist you appropriately.
The supplied 3M tape is helpful in adding some additional support to the hood scoop while helping eliminate any possibility for vibration and shaking. However, we highly recommend installation this hood scoop with the supplied hardware (which will include drilling) to ensure the scoop is entirely secured to the hood. Unfortunately we have not used or tested cyanoacrylate adhesive with this products so we are unable to attest if this would be successful.
This will not fit a 2010, it is specifically designed to fit 2005-2009 models.
As the scoop is not functional, there are no areas for water to enter the engine bay.
Item 71323-UA will be a black but we do not offer this currently in a flat black option.
It would be recommended to put some kind of coating on the hood scoop to help with protecting the scoop from scratches that can occur on the road.
As long as the hood scoop is installed properly, it should stay on without any issues.
The MMD Pre-Painted Hood Scoop is not a direct replica of the factory hood scoop. These hood scoops are a different dimension than the original OEM hood scoops equipped on applicable Mustangs.
We currently do not offer just the grille piece alone for the MMD Hood Scoop.
This MMD Hood Scoop will fit all 2005-2009 GT, V6, and Bullitt Mustangs with the stock hood installed.
Unfortunately, we do not offer the MMD Hood Scoop with stripes. However, a body shop should be able to match the stripes you have on your car currently.
