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.

very nice touch
Living in Arizona it gets quite hot outside, so anything I can add to help heat extraction from the motor is a good thing. these meshed vents added a very nice touch to the appearance while also allowing for more heat to escape the motor compartment. They do have a very slight dip to them once bolted down, but it's negligible. I would however suggest that future versions use a longer stud so its much easier to thread on the washers in the back portion of the vent. Also the larger washers that come with the kit need to have a larger over all diameter and the inner portion needs to be smaller so the nuts don't pull thru.Helpful (0)

Good look but the mech was punched in when I opens the box had to realign. Also mesh was really shiny prob take back off and paint. Seals were also fell off had to glue back in place. The vents themselves were a great fit and added a nice and unique look.Helpful (0)

Great aesthetic part
I purchased these heat extractors more for the looks than anything else, and they do not dissapoint. Installation was super simple and quick, and it completely changes the look of the front end without going over the top. I did leave the backing on over my open box CAI, but I opted for no back plate on the passenger side. This feature was really handy, and extremely easy to use as well. Such a great design!Helpful (0)

Good looking ,cheep screening material
I love the aggressive look of the speed mesh vents and the install went well,I did not have any figment trouble but be carful of the mesh screening because it is of the lowest quality,Scott drake should use better screening,I used lock tight and did not tighten down to much because of distortionHelpful (0)

Aggressive look upgrade!
Looked very nice on my 2015 Magnetic Metallic Stang! Fairly easy install...took a bit to get it to fit right, about 2 hours.Helpful (1)
So if I wanted to remove the restrictive plates to allow maximum air flow and extraction like I saw in the video, would there be any probably driving in normal/heavy rain? I have a Roush stage 2 SC installed which obviously gets very hot and am a little worried with that much water going down into a very hot engine bay?
With the bottom plate removed on the Speed Mesh Hood Vents, it will allow more water to enter into the engine bay. We recommend being extremely careful as this could cause damage to electrical components.
Will the stainless steel bolts on the outside portion be able to be removed? I would want to paint them but not the whole thing.
The stainless steel bolts on the outside will not be able to be removed from the hood vents.
Are these rust proof 4 rainy days
The Scott Drake Speed Mesh Hood Vents should not rust if properly maintained.
Hi. Why won't these fit on a 2017 Ecobbost?
This is only compatible with OEM GT hoods that came with vents.
Will it fit on cervini hood
These are only intended to be used with factory hoods.
The Scott Drake Speed Mesh Hood Vents are designed for use on the factory hoods, while they should fit we cannot guarantee fitment for the Anderson Composite Hoods.
We suggest reaching out to a body shop to see what needs to be done to paint the plate underneath the Speed Mesh Hood Vents. The mesh is not meant to be removed.
No, The Speed Mesh Hood Vents will eliminate the factory hood vent turn signals on equipped Mustang models.
