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.
