I agree with the looks. Looks very old school. I've heard that you really don't see a performance increase until 40mph :/ I could be misquoting though. If you're going to keep your car for a long time I'd say go for it!

By the way. I love how your mustang looks. I'm jealous haha. A shaker, no doubt, would look awesome on it!

You are never going to see any gains from them. Yes they look cool, but any "ram air" effect is negated by the fact that it is not a sealed system. Any pressure built up from high speed air is just going to get bled out.

Personally I think that one looks dumb sitting atop the already high cowl of our hoods. That thing in the middle of a nice clean flat hood might look ok, maybe. Not my cup of tea.

its a big hole on your hood, i think i read somewhere that a lil bit of air gets under there and makes the hood move a bit, not 100% on that.

may look kinda like this http://autostyling1.files.wordpress...._reed_boss.jpg

but if you ask me i would get something more like this.

I think it looks cool. Go for it! I do like the look of it better though with the whole section blacked out as well though.
