Review & Install Video

Hey, what's going on, guys, Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today I'm bringing you a quick overview of the speed mesh hood vents available for the 2015 and newer Mustang. If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang GT and you're looking for a way to switch out your factory hood vents for a newer aftermarket look, then you might be interested in the speed mesh hood vents I have here today. The hood vents I have here today completely redesign the way your factory hood vents look, giving it a very unique, stealthy appearance that truly isn't like any other. Now we all know simple designs like these can really mean night and day difference for the appearance of your Pony. I can tell you first hand these hood vents will completely change the appearance and look of your front end, but more specifically your hood on your Mustang. The hood vents I have here today, like I said, completely redesign the factory appearance, giving it a mesh style design which, like I said, is extremely stealthy. In my opinion it looks really aggressive. This one actually has a two-in-one functionality. As you can see here, it still utilizes the heat extractor functionality of your factory hood vents but, like I said, this one is a little bit different. As you can see, this is about the size of your factory hood vent heat extractor. It's a very small slit. What makes this one pretty cool is that you can actually keep it like this or remove the backing to open up the heat extractor for a little bit more of an extracted air flow. This backing comes off just like this, slipping off. I took off a couple of the bolts just to make it easier for me to show you guys, but it will have a little bit more security to hold it on there. But if you didn't want to take it off, you can really open up the hood vent like this to give it, like I said, a little bit more air flow, a little bit more heat extraction, which is definitely beneficial. This one, like I said, has a two-in-one functionality. A lot of bang for your buck with this particular product, and I'll talk about the pricing in just a second. To finish up the materials, this was all constructed out of stainless steel hardware, the stainless steel mesh with the stainless steel border and stainless steel rivets, all of which, like I said, very high quality materials here. CNC laser cut for precision. This way, it'll fit perfectly just like your OEM hood vents will. Like I said, it's got that removable backing to increase a little bit of air flow. Nothing too completely drastic, but it will make a slight difference, given you are opening up that heat extractor a little bit more than the factory. Now, price wise for these particular speed mesh hood vents, you can expect to be picking these up for about 150 bucks, which is honestly not too bad considering the complete redesign of the factory hood vents and also the two-in-one functionality with the removable heat extractor to expand that a little bit. All in all, I think this gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Installation wise, like I said in the beginning, this one's gonna be pretty straightforward, something anybody can do with a little bit of time in the driveway. Expect to get this done in about a half hour, tops. You won't even require any special tools, just a simple socket set and maybe even a pair of pliers. What you'll have to do to kick it off is pop your hood and remove your hood insulation on the top inside of your hood by removing a couple of clips and then your factory hood vents which is held on by a cable and a few more clips. Once you get your factory hood vents out you can start putting these into place. It'll be completely up to you whether or not you want to leave the backing in. If you leave it in, expect about the same amount of heat extraction than your factory ones. But if you take it out, you're really opening up this whole area. Completely up to you. The installation's all gonna be the same. You're gonna use the same washers and locks just to get this tightened down. Once it is tightened down into place, you're good to go to repeat for the opposite side. All in all, you're looking at about a half an hour to complete the installation. It definitely gets a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Just to wrap things up, guys, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer Mustang GT and you're looking for a way to replace those factory hood vents with a newer unique style, you might be interested in the speed mesh hood vents I have here which are of course available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Intimidating Design. Sometimes, it's the smaller modifications that really have the biggest impact. That is certainly the case when it comes to this pair of Scott Drake Speed Mesh Hood Vents. Featuring stainless steel hardware and a honeycomb mesh design, these satin black vent inserts bring a stealthy style to the front end of your 2015-2017 GT Mustang. Complete with integrated backing plates that can be removed for additional heat extraction, this set of Hood Vents will drastically change the attitude of your S550 GT.

Quality Construction. Designed as a direct fit installation to replace your factory heat extractor vents, these Scott Drake Speed Mesh Hood Vent Inserts feature high quality stainless steel hardware with laser-cut frames completed in a satin black finish. Vents include a backing plate that can be removed for increased air flow, making this Mesh Vent Insert Kit a two-in-one investment. No cutting or drilling into your GT hood is required and the honeycomb mesh detailing really makes a statement.

Application. This pair of Scott Drake Speed Mesh Hood Vents are specifically designed for installation on 2015-2017 GT Mustangs equipped with the factory hood.

Application Note. This Scott Drake Mesh Vent upgrade will eliminate the factory hood vent turn signals on equipped Mustang models.

Looks good

Once you've got them installed they look cool. I personally think it would be nicer if they came pre curved to follow the contours of the hood, but overall a nice upgrade

    Gave my S550 just the look I was looking for. Was easy to install and the fitment was as expected. I like the look of the mesh but will probably paint everything black eventually.

    Great look bad mounting hardware

    Out of the box the weather striping was not installed correctly or hanging off. The mounting screws on my vents have 4-5 threads less than any of the installation videos I watched, No way I could get two nuts or 2 wrenches to tighten. Looks like the manufacturer supplied nuts that were 1/2 the size in thickness of the others to compensate for the shorter screws. This also causes fitment issues causing the vents to suck down unevenly to get them tight. Really thinking about sending them back for another set.

    Nice look, but that's about it..

    I'll just touch on the big negatives, in my opinion. First of all, this two piece design is a pain to install with the hood propped open, I finally got a bucket, placed it on the manifold/strut bar with a sponge on top to avoid scratching the paint and prevent slippage. The two piece design was a pain to fit in the stock vent holes, just wasn't quite the right size, then the bottom plate just didn't want to stay seated and caused the rear of the vent to pop out. The bolts on the vent just aren't adequate and are too short for the supplied washers. Then on top of that, the supplied washers are way too thick but not wide enough and can go sideways while tightening the bolts, meaning I had to keep readjusting them while tightening the bolt. They supply you with a washer, locking washer and two bolts per stud and expect you to get all of these on each stud, I couldn't get them tight enough to fit them on each stud without bowing the mesh on the vent. I wound up placing blue lock tight on the top bolt to prevent it from coming lose and falling into the hood insulation. No matter how hard I tried, I just could not get the vents to line up just right, plus they leave a small gap on one side or the other of the vent. I like the look, but I just don't see these holding up in the long run because the mesh is thin and flimsy. I would have just boxed them up and sent them back, but after 2 hours of working on them, they weren't gonna beat me! Overall, nice concept, bad overall design. They just should have followed the stock design of the factory vent on the bottom for installation purposes. After all the work, these should be half the price of what they are.

    Scott Drake Mesh Hood Vents 2016 GT

    These were amazing right out of the box, the build quality and powdercoated finish was top notch. Stainless mesh laser cutting was flawless and beautiful. Had my local body shop install for just $50. Easy to understand "color" step by step directions where do you ever see that ?? I really never used the turn signals in the factory vents more for my passengers wonderment than mine ! New vents look aggressive against the Oxford white.

    They look okay, pretty cheaply made from what it seems like. The rubber foam gasket type thing started flapping in the wind after about a week, had to tear it out.
