Cervini Stalker Hood with Louvers (2015-2017 V6/EcoBoost/GT)

Being an incredibly popular hood for the 2010-2014 crowd, the Stalker hood made its shining return to the spotlight on the S550 Mustang. Incorporating the heat extractor design into this hood, Cervini’s also welcomed a center scoop to allow more fresh air to enter the engine bay which allows for a very aggressive look.

The classic cowl hood look has been around as long as muscle cars have risen since the 1960s. With that said, this type of hood is no stranger to the Mustang being a popular option for many Fox Body, SN95 and S197 owners. With that said, it’s no different when it comes to the S550.

Trufiber Carbon Fiber A49-3 Hood (2015-2017 V6/EcoBoost/GT)

Stemming from many exotic cars, carbon fiber has made an entrance into the muscle car realm as not only an aesthetic modification, but also as a way to add further weight savings to the vehicle. There are even many Ford parts offering carbon fiber items right from the factory - including completely carbon fiber wheels featured on the GT350R. With that said, this A49-3 hood from Trufiber takes the best aspects of the factory GT hood and makes them that much better. The heat extractors are still located in the same general area and are fully functional, while the factory cowl shape is elongated and raised for an aggressive, head-turning look.

Featured on our own Bill Tumas’ Roush Supercharged GT, this hood adds an extremely aggressive appearance to the front end of the car. Keeping off the same body lines of the factory hood, the cowl remains in the same general area.
