    I notice a lot of nice looking Mustangs here, all sorts of hoods, spoilers, wheels, etc.

    But aside from New Edges, I don't see any Hood Scoops.
    I know they make some, I was looking at AM and was thinking about grabbing one.

    Which brings me to my question, why does no one else have one?
    Just money better spent elsewhere?
    Fact that it isn't functional? Because that can be fixed.

    The only reason I am looking into it is because once I paint my spoiler and mount it, well my car is a bit like a mullet, all business up front, with a party in the back. So I was going to add this to give some attention to the front, in addition to the diamond headlights I am getting from LRS.


    Just wondering why I don't see it here of all places.

    Like said above.
    Why put something square on top of something that smooth and round everywhere. Cowl hood, heat extractor and the cobra hood are what is prefered.

    Scoops look awful.
    If you want something more on your hood, just look at aftermarket hoods.

    I didn't look too hard at that angle.
    I was looking at the customer rides, many are side viewed.

    But I can see where you guys are coming from.
    It does look better than an Autozone scoop...
    I may have to pony up the dough for a ram air. I do love that old school Mach look.

    we are trying to get a group buy on hoods which is your best bet to change the look up.

    Tough to make it functional too. That far up on the hood, there's really nothing there that needs air, unless you have that ram air shaker thing that the Mach's had. So really it's a combination of not really functional plus it looks silly...
