What color is your car and what have you done to it?
Maybe an eleanor?

Or a cowl?

Or a concept?

Any of these look decent.

That hood you linked too looks retarded, in no offense at all.

All of the ones Deathdiesel choose are decent.

The eleanor hood looks out of place without the actual body kit, and the cowl is stupid unless you need it for a big blower.

I say this one.

Its decent with the stock body lines.

In my honest opinion the stock hood is the best looking. The Saleen hood is the only other one I'd ever put on my own car. And thats only after getting more important aero pieces first.


Like a chin spoiler and carbon fiber splitter....

It is pretty much stock. I just want to dress it up a little. The big flat stock hood is the only thing I don't like about the car

The roush scoop doesn't look too bad on the newer mustangs in y opinion. It "unflattens" the hood and is much cheaper than buying a brand new hood.

If you still want a new hood this has a decent selection, and a few ram air hoods that look better in my opinion

I think hood scoops are even worse. Totally non-useful and usually look out of place on the car.

Saleen hood and call it a day. It's the only non-overly done hood that still keeps the factory lines in place. Cervinis would be the only other place I'd get a hood from, but like I said earlier their hoods only really look good if you get it with the entire body kit.


Another thing.

Any aftermarket hood needs hood pins. Trust me. We've seen way too many hoods fly up on these forums. Do it, and do it right.
