Cowl hoods are a popular style upgrade for Ford Mustangs. They give your ride a unique look, and functional cowl hood scoops can also boost performance.
Hood scoops function by funneling air through a tight channel. Most of them open at the front of the hood, where the air pressure is high. Another area with high air pressure is the base of the windshield. By opening there, cowl hoods are still able to funnel high-pressure air into your engine.
Because they open at the base of the windshield rather than at the front of the hood, cowl hoods also aren’t as susceptible to damage from projectiles like rocks. This means cruising on country roads with your Mustang is a little bit safer for your engine.
Check out attractive options from top manufacturers, like Cervini, Trufiber, and Anderson Composites. Fiberglass cowl induction hoods come unpainted so you can match them with your Mustang's color.
Carbon fiber options are also available for a more lightweight option. You can paint them as well, but most prefer the sleek look of unpainted carbon fiber.
