QuietRide Solutions AcoustiHood Underhood Cover Kit for all 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, and 1998 Mustangs.
A good addition or upgrade to any Mustang is hood insulation. Not only is under hood insulation beneficial, but these kits from QuietRide Solutions can also add style to your Mustang. These kits have been specifically designed for 1994-1998 Mustangs and installation is a breeze. No modifications or special tools are needed. Don't wait to properly insulate and customize your engine bay.
- Available in a smooth design or with a running pony logo, tri-bar logo, or SVT Cobra logo
- High temp ABS material will regularly tolerate temperatures up to 250 degrees
- Allows for sufficient air flow which is the important factor in heat dissipation
- Includes heat shield barrier insulation panels
These pre-cut kits come molded and ready to install in your Mustang. AcoustiHood Under Hood Covers include heat shield barrier insulation panels to protect painted surfaces and to reduce the vibration and noise produced by these large body panels from entering the passenger cabin. They’re manufactured to cover the structural ribs on the underside of the hood surface of your vehicle to give a clean, finished look to the engine compartment. Under Hood kits are year, make, and model specific, pre-cut and ready to install, and come with a hardware kit and illustrated installation instructions. Where possible, the manufacturer uses factory hood insulation mounting holes. Some hoods will require additional mounting holes. Instructions for drilling mounting holes and a drill stop sleeve are included in each kit.
Each AcoustiHood product is patterned and modeled on an OEM hood, so that it is year, make and model specific and fits exactly as it should. The Heat Shield Thermal Acoustic insulation panels are designed to fit between the structural ribs of the hood to stop vibration. The high-temperature ABS panel covers and protects the insulation. It also conceals the underhood rib structure and the blemishes that come as a result of exterior body work.
While the hoods on older vehicles of the 1950s and 60s are much like kettle drums, the hoods of newer vehicles are much more structurally supported. Depending on the size, shape and structural integrity of the hood, AcoustiHood will reduce the transfer of air-born noise as much as three to five decibels on average. While that may not sound like a lot, it really works out to about a 25 percent reduction in automotive generated noise that buffets the windshield, dramatically impacting the comfort of the passenger cabin.
AcoustiHood products are available in a few variations: Smooth Hood Covers are designed for customers who want to retain an OEM restoration look to their engine compartment. There is no logo on the smooth hood covers. Additionally, there are options for a running pony, tri-bar, and SVT Cobra logo. The running pony option has the Mustang running horse with the word "Mustang" underneath it. The tri-bar logo has the running pony with a rectangular tri-bar symbol behind it. The SVT Cobra logo is simply the word "SVT" and underneath it, the word "COBRA".
*Be certain to maintain at least one inch (or more) of clearance between the surface of the under hood cover and engine components like air cleaner covers.
*Some steel hoods may require the drilling of hood cover mounting holes. Instructions are included in the kit.
*Hood covers on fiberglass hoods are mounted with magnetic fasteners which are glued in place. Instructions are included in the kit.
