    Review & Installation Video

    Hey I’m Justin with, and I’m taking a closer look at this Unpainted and AmericanMuscle pre painted hood scoop, fitting all 2005-2009 Mustangs. This scoop is inspired by a similar scoop found on the 65 and 66 Shelby GT350, and when installed, really gives the S197 hood some much needed muscle. The scoop itself is constructed using ultra durable high impact plastic, and as I mentioned earlier is either available unpainted, or pre painted. This pre painted version does get sprayed right here at AmericanMuscle headquarters, using the same base and clear coat urethane paint Ford uses in their factories making for a perfect color match to your ride. In the box, you’ll find everything needed for the install, including the scoop itself, the detailed instructions, the drilling template, the 3M automotive tape, the 3M adhesion promoter, the alcohol prep pads, all the hardware, and finally the plastic insert. You will have to drill a few holes into the hood using the drilling template, just to get the scoop installed properly. Once you have the holes drilled, move over to the scoop itself, and prep the back of the scoop using the 3M adhesion promoter wherever the 3M tape will go. Once you have that done, remove the protective backing on the tape, and adhere the scoop carefully to your hood. Tighten up the screws and you’re pretty much good to go. I know it sounds a little daunting drilling into your hood, but you should have total confidence using the supplied template and the detailed instructions. When it’s all said and done, you should have the scoop installed in about an hour. So if you’re looking to add a little bit more muscle to the hood of your S197, and you’re a fan of that early Shelby styling, then be sure to check out one of these two options right here at

    Retro Styling. Now you can complete the look of your S197 Mustangs factory hood with a late 60's style hood scoop for great retro styling. This SpeedForm Mustang hood scoop is not only made of durable high impact plastic for a long life, but comes pre-painted to match your Mustangs factory color straight out of the box!

    Painted Here to Match 2005-2009 Factory Mustang Colors. All SpeedForm Hood Scoops are painted right here, at AmericanMuscle HQ, to match your stock Ford Mustang colors exactly. It will give your Pony a cool, retro appearance that will make it stand out from the rest of the herd.

      I ordered the scoop based on other reviews I saw here, and decided to take a chance on the pre-painted hood scoop. Fit and Finish was very good. Drilling holes in a perfectly good hood was unnerving, but the supplied template was right on. If you flatten the template out a couple of days before using helps eliminate any fold lines. Drilling the holes I used a smaller 3/16" bit as a pilot hole for the larger 7/32". creates a cleaner hole and won't chip the paint. The most difficult part of this installation, was removing the hood insulation and buttons. Most of them broke and I had to make a trip to the local autozone to pick up new ones ... $4 addition. I didn't have any issues with the front of the scoop not sitting flush. Take your time and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how well this scoop looks. I'll be adding more of the pre-painted parts as I modify. Get's two thumbs up.

      Painted scoop

      Excellent color match , mine is yellow and you would think it came new with the car! The actual fitment could be better though, the edges of the scoop base will have to be filed on an angle for it to fit flush or flat to the hood.The hood has a slight curve to it but the scoop appears to be designed to fit on a flat hood. It's installed now as is but I will remove and adjust it before driving it in the spring.

      Great, but difficult to get there...

      I felt compelled to write this review after actually dealing with this product. First off, now that it is on, it looks great. Definitely adds a meaner, more aggressive look to my sixer. That said, there were quite a few issues! I spent at least 3-5 hours on this product, which should have been an hour long job maximum. Now there are a few reasons for this. Primarily, the layout measurements are inaccurate. I flattened/pulled the paper until it was fully flattened, with not a single ripple. Drilled the holes precisely on the indicated locations. Yet, the bolts REFUSED to align, especially in the front. I had myself and two friends work on it (and yes, we are not new to this kind of stuff) It is necessary to push and pull on the different bolts/hoodscoop, in order to have them align. As we got closer to actually finishing, one of the bolts would always pop out, forcing us to remove the hood in order to place it back in its location. The other main problem is that the bolts are simply too short! It was eventually impossible to have one of the bolts slide through the hole, even though we finally managed to align it perfectly with the hole. So, my solution was to go buy my own LONGER bolts from Home depot. This required me to also buy new clips, as the bolts that come with the package may not be removed from the clips. Even though the bolts were long enough, we faced the problem that they continuously would jump off of the hoodscoop, forcing us to remove it and replace it. We eventually got sick of doing so, and decided to superglue the clips onto the hoodscoop in order to secure them. This did end up working. Finally, we were able to install the scoop, although there still exists visible spacing between the scoop and the hood (which isn't too drastic, but is still rather noticeable) There is definitely a possible way to avoid all of this hassle, and this would be to simply allow a screw to screw into the hoodscoop, through the hole from inside the hood. I personally believe this would make everything much simpler. SO! All this said, I would recommend that, before you purchase this scoop, go and purchase at LEAST: . A set of longer bolts ( I personally used 8/32 x 3/4" and they worked great) . Superglue in order to fasten the clips . Extra washers and nuts in case you lose some of the ones that come with the package All this should amount to approximately $5, but will save you hours of pointless trial and error and a big headache. My scoop now looks great, but the labor required (due to small malfunctions in the design) was rather unnecessary when it really should have only been an hour long project max. Also, the fasteners for the insulation are almost impossible to remove without breaking them, so pick up a few of those too. At least the shipping was on time.

      Hood Scoop

      I got this shipped to me pretty fast and as soon as they got to my house I started working on it. I was a little scared of drilling holes on my hood but with the template it all worked out. Its a little complicated to make the screws go in at the same time because the 3m tape might get stuck on there and makes it a pain but after a while I was able to get them right. It looks awesome and I recommend it to any mustang owner.

      Nice Lookin

      Nice addition to my 2005 V6. The rear section secures nicely, but the front gets lifted by air at speeds over 50. I used an epoxy to attach two clips under the front of the nose to secure it firmly. Check the fit before applying the 3 M tape. The template was pretty close , but the plastic scoop is and clips are a little flexible as to their position.

      The paint is perfect but there is a gap between the scoop and the hood at the front of the scoop. The gap makes the scoop look cheap. I have attempted to tighten the bolts to try and seal it better but this has little effect. Any suggestions would be helpful. thanks

      perfect retro style

      I think they nailed the retro look with this hood scoop. I couldn't have asked for a easier installation, but be sure to pick up a few extra trim retainers for the hood liner...I broke about half of mine getting them out. You are gonna love it.

      Color match is perfect. Holes are a little too far forward for the front insert, so it doesn't capture the bracket inside of the scoop. Also the front edges of the scoop do not sit flush with the hood. Nothing a little black RTV won't fix! Great product, just check the drawing. Good for 15 RWHP! LOL!

      Painted Hood Scoop

      I had a Roush Hood Scoop put on my 06 Mustang and was looking for something different for my 09. When I opened the box...WOW!! Nice paint job and the hood scoop is bold but not over sold...perfect! Much better than the Roush. Reviewers are complaining of the templates so I called. That happened the first few shipments and was assured it was no longer an issue. Template was shipped, packed carefully with all parts. Scoop is beautiful!!

      Review from SpeedForm Hood Scoop - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)

      Nice Scoop for the price

      Install time took me about an hour, I opted for an unpainted one because I did mine matte black to match other items on the car. Like I read in previous reviews there is an imperfection in the top of the scoop obviously a result from the molding process. I used a filler primer first and then sprayed it matte black. Imperfection completely gone. Like most aftermarket pieces Your going to have to finesse it to make it perfect. Also like others stated the only other complaint I have is the slight gap between the hood and scoop at the front. But trust me I am completely satisfied with the end result and overall look of the scoop.

      Review from SpeedForm Hood Scoop - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)

      Helpful tips

      I live in Northeast Texas. I ordered the scoop and a couple of decals late on a monday afternoon and they arrived friday morning using the free shipping method. The hood itself was very simple to install and really gives my Mustang a mean look. The hardest part of the install for me was actually removing the insulation from under the hood. The plastic tabs securing the insulation are pretty tough to pull out. Forget trying to use a flathead screwdriver like the video mentioned. That will never work. Instead I used a paint key to pull the tabs down far enough and then grabbed them by the shaft with needle-nose pliers. This works A LOT BETTER. Also, there IS an issue with fitment toward the front of the scoop. I ordered mine unpainted because I was going to paint a strip over my car, and I was just going to paint the scoop at the same time. So what I did was used some multi purpose indoor/outdoor caulking and ran it along the edges of the sccop before I painted. This filled in that gap in the front and gave the scoop a more "bondo-ed"/ fiberglassed look. I will post pictures. Mine is the black GT with the flatblack strip. The scoop did seem to have some small buldges and dips but nothing you wouldn't notice unless you were really looking at it. Overall I'm very pleased though. I think it turned out great.

      Review from SpeedForm Hood Scoop - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)

      Great look for any 'Stang

      I decided to make my '06 a little more retro and have a '70 Boss 302 look to it. This was perfect considering I didn't want to dish out money for a Shaker set-up but still have that aggressive look. Unfortunatly the front end rises up and has put holes in my vinyls on my hood, but I had plans to rip off the vinyls and have the stripes painted down to match the paint on the scoop a little more perfectly. In short or for those TL:DR's ... Great retro look, but the front does scrape the hood. I had a Ford body shop paint & install it since I didn't want to drill into my only hood myself for $218 total!

      Hood Scoop

      No doubt this scoop makes my 06 GT Look much meaner and i love the look,but i have to say it doesn't fit perfectly.The scoop is flat whereas the hood has a slight curve in it. I would also suggest drilling the holes with a 1/4" bit instead of the recommended 7/32. Makes it easier to fit onto the hood.The bolts on the clips could stand to be another eightth inch longer too as it was pretty difficult to get them to come through far enough to get a couple of the nuts to start. Maybe this is because the scoop doesn't exactly follow the curve of the hood.Once i got the nuts on,tightening them helped the scoop fit.I am actually pretty happy with the scoop although this review may not sound like it.

      Review from SpeedForm Hood Scoop - Unpainted (05-09 GT, V6)

      Great Scoop

      Awesome scoop. Had the local Ford delearship paint it in my Windveil blue. Be sure and paint the inside of the front of scoop up to the black mesh grille. First time I picked it up, got home and realized you can see from the sides the inside of scoop. Don't mount this without drilling the holes and using the nuts and bolts. The 3M tape is just a double insurance, not to be the only mounting to the hood. Lay the template over the hood making sure all the folds are flattened out, then use blue painters tape to hold it in place. Lay an old sheet over engine compartment before drilling, and I used a piece of 2x4 under the hood where it latches to jack the hood up a little. IMPORTANT - when drilling the two holes closest to the windshield, put some electrical tape around your drill bit so that only an eighth inch of the bit goes through your hood. I fortunately caught this before it happened, but something told me to double check underneath the hood before drilling these two back holes, and sure enough, the rubber hose that runs between the two windshield washers is directly underneath the hood. You literally will drill into the rubber tube unless you shim it away from the bottom of the hood. I was nervous drilling holes into the hood of a literally brand new car, but had to have the scoop. Just take your time, and here's another tip....have a friend help you with this. What we did was stick a footlong strip of blue painters tape on top of the back part of the hood scoop. (from front to back with about a foot left over, then folded that over to make a handle.) Then ran a piece perpendicular to that piece (which holds the first piece in place) and we used the tape piece as a "handle" to lower the scoop down. One guy can hold the scoop from the front lip, but there's no way to guide the back end of the scoop when lowering it into position. Lining up the 7 holes was tricky too, because the bolts are real short. One guy on one side of the car and you on the other really helps to lower it in place. And with the 3M tape you really only get one shot at this, so you want it right. It took us a good 3 hours to mount this scoop but it was all worth the effort. Looks sharp. Been on there a couple years now, and at 110 mph it don't move a bit. After a year on the car, I retightened the seven nuts and put some locktight on just to be sure. Glad I did cause they had loosened up a bit. So use a little locktight upon installation and you'll be git to go. Looks totally factory.
