Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out an aggressive 2013 inspired part for your early S197, I’m talking about MMD’s hood vent louvers available pre painted, or matte black, fitting all 05-09 Mustangs. Whether you’re looking for an over the top show part for your car or a functional factory inspired part like these hood vents, MMD definitely has you covered, they’re the leader in producing unique styling parts specifically for your late model Mustang. To check out more stuff from MMD including their 2013 GT project car, you have to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t done so already, simply by clicking on the banner below. When you ask a lot of Mustang fans what they prefer most with the new 13 and 14 Mustangs, of course a lot of people point to the addition of the new cool tail lights, but a lot of people point out the functional hood vents on the 13 and 14 GTs. Raxiom took care of the need with the 05-09 tail lights modelled after the 13-14 tail lights, and now MMD has answered the call with these functional hood vents available for all 05-09 Mustangs. The vents are sold in sets of two and are made from extremely durable automotive grade ABS plastic. As I mentioned at the beginning of this video, you do have the option of picking up these vents in a color matched pre painted version, like the grabber blue vents here, or if you want the vents to stand out a little bit more, you can pick up the matte black version which is currently installed on our 06 GT behind me. You guys should all know the deal by now with our pre painted parts, our in house paint booth uses the same base and clear coat that Ford uses in their factories, making for an excellent color match right out of the box. We do carry about every color available for the 05-09 cars but if you do just want to make sure we have your color available and in stock then go ahead and click the link below to head back to the product page at AmericanMuscle.com. Besides the awesome appearance upgrade these vents give your factory hood, it should be mentioned that they are actually functional hood vents allowing all that trapped, hot engine bay air to escape, just like on the 13 and 14 GTs. Opening up the package for the first time you will of course find the vents themselves, in addition to the honeycomb inserts, and all the tape, directions, and supplies needed for the installation. As you may have guessed you will need to do some cutting to fit these vents properly into your factory hood, I know cutting into your hood does sound a little scary but we actually installed these vents into our 06 GT project car behind me, and it really wasn’t that bad at all. You will need to get an angle grinder to make the proper cuts but if you take your time, follow the detailed instructions, you should be wrapped up in a couple of hours from start to finish. As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our award winning customer service team, whether it’s about the vents themselves, the pre painting process, or about the actual install they’re only an email or a phone call away. So if you really dig the functional styling of the 13 and up GT hood, and want that same aggressive style for your 05-09 Mustang, then be sure to check out MMD’s hood vent louvers, available pre painted or matte black, right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

will rain affect my engine i really want to get these but i don't have a garage so my mustang is outdoors at all time just wondering if rain will do anything because the louvers are cut into the hood.

  • There is no danger of water damage with these hood vents. The water will simply drain between the rocker covers and strut towers. They are also installed far enough up on the hood to avoid the air filter. Hope this helps!

rain I am concerned that when it rains, the rain water will soak the engine compartment. Is there any sort of design with these that will prevent rain/car wash from getting into the engine compartment?

    Review from MMD Hood Vent Louvers - Matte Black (05-12 GT, V6)

    Nice and easy

    Perfect addition to my upgrades. Video showed to install with a angle grinder, but I opted to use a jig saw with fine metal blade. Taped off area marked and out line traced the Louvres drilled a 3/8 hole and just followed lines. Doing so allowed me not to have to remove hood or worry about sparks causing in wanted damage. All I did was put a 4x4 block where the hood would latch allowing for easy clearance and done with both side in about an hour. Perfect fit!

    They change the whole look of the front end. I love them. It was scary to install them, cutting your hood is never fun. If I did it again I would take it to a body shop.

    MMD Hood Vents on F-150

    Originally purchased for my mustang. Ran into a few issues with delivery so my wife sold the car. I figured that due to the twin turbos, the vents would/should work on my 2013 F-150. Had them installed professionally for about $300.00. Definitely worth not having to sweat screwing it up myself. I chose the matte black and the compliment the tuxedo black and matte Appearance Pkg. hood decal on my FX4. Seem to decrease underhood temps while adding to the looks of the truck. Just washed the truck today in an in-bay automatic car wash and noticed little water intrusion. Overall, happy with the product.

    Functional and great looking.

    These look great and are not to hard to install. I'm not a auto body guy, but if you take your time and follow instructions it's easy. They work too! You can see heat waves venting from the vents when you are sitting at stop lights or when stopped with the engine hot.

    Aggressive

    Hands down the best part about this is that they are actually functional. If you are using an angle grinder to cut into your hood, make sure you have extra cutoff wheels for it. I made that mistake and had to drive to Home Depot with an unfinished hood. Not the best idea to drive around with a rectangular hole in my hood! haha! Anyways, it looks great now, and the functionality is AWESOME!

    Better in person

    These look great in person! Take your time with this install. I don't know about the 05-09 hoods but in the 10-12 hoods you have to cut through multiple layers as you will be cutting through some of hood bracing. This will not affect the structure of the hood though. I also had to trim some of the bottom outside of the vents to be able to shut the hood properly. This isn't a problem as they give you plenty of material to trim off. It works on the 10-12 hoods but you will have to do a bit of extra as they aren't a drop in item but so worth it when installed.

    Nice Vents

    Great looking Vents..and they are functional which is nice. We live out by Cedar Point and sometimes get stopped in the horrific stop and go traffic out there and with the headers and cams on my car it definitely does not like staying still for too long in the summer heat. Hopefully these Vents help getting some of that trapped heat out. The paint match was perfect and the install wasn't too bad as long as you can get over the fact that you're cutting two big holes in your hood.
