    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.

    Please Note. If you have a Mustang that is was equipped with Turn Signal Lights in the factory hood vents, these Hood Vents will eliminate the use of those lights.

        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.

        Would these fit/be compatible with the vents of the Anderson Composites CF 3" cowl hood? At a glance, it seems like the vents on the AC hood are the same size as the OEM hood.

        • 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.

        Is it possible to paint the plate underneath and is the mesh removable?

        • 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.

        Will I be able to retain the hood turn signals in my '16 GT?

        • No, The Speed Mesh Hood Vents will eliminate the factory hood vent turn signals on equipped Mustang models.

            Best looking heat extractors for the money

            Very well made, and incredibly simple to install. I struggled with choosing between these or the Roush vents....I'm glad I went with these!

            Quick change

            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.

            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!

            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 distortion

            Love and hate

            Love how my 17 GT PP pops with these but sadly because I have a open top intake box. When it rains the water gets to the filter. I’ll definitely be keeping these on my car but will have to change out my intake system or custom do a cover for when it rains.

            These extractors allow for more air flow than stock, or Roush stock. Look fantastic, easy to install.

            These are not black

            While these are not too bad for the price, you should take note that they are NOT black. The Mesh is unpainted which was a huge turn off when I received them. I ended up painting them matte black. While not a huge deal to paint, disappointed that they were not completely black. My install time was a weekend since I needed to paint them with several coats of epoxy paint

            Good but could be great

            They look great installed. I did not use backing plates. They were very heavy and not using them lets more hot air out. Here are several must tips. 1. Watch the install video and other you tube videos before you install. 2. As other reviewers noted the bolts are not as long as the ones shown in the video. 3. The tiny weatherstripping around the edges was barely attached. I bought some 3M adhesive auto trim glue and carefully cleaned surface and applied the 3M adhesive letting it dry overnight. 4. Use a bucket or something to keep hood up about two feet so you can push down on vents as you attach hardware to vents. Also, lay out a towel or sheet over engine in case you drop any of the hardware when you are removing or installing vents. 5. My 2017 GT had thick glue strips attached to stock vents and was challenging to remove. I also later used Goo gone and removed residue left on hood after removal. 6. Go slow. Have a plastic trim removal piece to help you push gently on mesh if it starts to bow in during install. 7. Although I never had plans to install backing plates, they are very heavy, i think it would make attaching hardware very difficult. The bolts are not long enough on the vents and are preinstalled so you cannot swap them for longer ones. 8. If this is one of your first car mods you are doing yourself, get help or have a mechanic install. They are the best looking vents available and I would give them 5 stars if not the issue with the weatherstripping being flimsy undone when I opened box and having to go buy trim glue and reinstalling them.

            Really Good But ...

            So it's a really easy install so good on Scott Drake for engineering a plug and play design that is also modular. However that is also its greatest weakness. Being once you start to tighten the nuts to secure it, it will start to bend down the mesh grill, at least if there is no backplate on. Even then not a huge issue, just push up on the grill through the bottom and dont tighten it down as much. Then lock it into place with the lock nut. Seems to vent A LOT more air than stock if you leave the backplates off. Gives the car an interesting look that borders on rice for some, but leans more towards race. My only wish is that the mesh grill was powder coated black instead of chrome finish. But its a simple remedy I would think on my own. But a second finish choice would be nice.

            Doesn’t fit

            The product is too thick/bolts are too short. Furthermore, tightening the bolts with what little thread you have results in pinch points that ruins the look of the vents. I returned mine. I’m certain there are better products but I’ve only attempted to install this one albeit unsuccessfully
