    The only functioning ram air hood scoop you're gonna find is the shaker setup like the Mach 1 cars. They're nice but hardly worth the $800 in my eyes performance gains are nominal. 90% of the scooped aftermarket hoods aren't actually cut out when you buy them you or body shop has to do it

    If you're looking to do stuff to the car start with the cheap easy things like a shifter, cat back,air filter. Just stay outta pep boys "performance" aisle there's enough riced of mustangs on the road already

    they are there for a reason....to make the car look better.

    just like the "wing", or chrome wheels, or any number of other things nobody ever has an issues with. But for some reason people get their undies in a bunch because of cosmetic side scoops (that have been on Mustangs since the very first one) and the hood scoop...ah well...

    If you're concerned with the look of non functioning hood and side scoops why put a carbon fiber hood on the car. Carbon fiber is for full blown race cars and ricers. They don't belong on street driven cars (especially American muscle cars) they chip extremely easily need to be re-cleared on the regular or look terrible.

    Fake or not, I wish they just faded to the same color as the rest of the car.

    well maybe not carbon fiber but ive seen some cowl hoods that look nice and some that have vents for heat extraction... I was also thinking of cutting my fake grill insert out to allow the engine to get some cool air but then figured rain and snow might be an issue.... on my last mustang ahha I took the side scoop inserts out hoping they would be opend rite into the wheel wells to allow air to cool the brakes but nope

    The temp changes you would see by venting air into the engine compartment and not directly to your filter (ram air) would be nominal and serve no performance purpose whatsoever. If you a still have a factory air filter box housing it's sealed and pulls cooler air from the fender, and most gt cold air kits are fashioned the same pull air through fender. The heat extractor hoods work good on the forced induction cars because most of them have a larger filter and its in the engine bay. So it's pulling the hot air from the engine. The faster the car is moving the faster the air is being pushed through the extractor vents. I believe the cevinis stalker hood is available with functioning ram air and you can even get matching stalker side scoops if you're really looking for the functionality of the air in the engine

    It's kinda like the spoilers. At speeds less than 150, they don't do much spoilin'.
