What is the difference other than the pic angle?

Current Mustang
2012 GT500 silver with red stripe, SVT performance package, and Recaro seats.

Past Mustangs in order and color of text.
(1.)2000, (2.)2004, (3.)2006GT/Auto traded for (4.)2006GT/Manual, (5.)1996, (6.)2011GT, (7.)2003GT, (8.)2006GT, (9.)
2013 Boss 302, and (10.) 2002GT (I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)

Not sure I see the difference you do between the Red car and the two you like.........or is it an angle thing you're looking at it from?


For the record I think the hood has a too busy look to it. This is vaguely reminiscent of the too many scoops, heat extractors and spoilers look on the front of Pontiac's WS6 Trans Ams from the late 90s through 2002.


Not to say everyone will feel this way about it......that car had a following that liked that look and I imagine this after market hood for the Mustang will as well.

I am not seeing any difference either other than angle of pic for the hood. Now I am seeing different bumpers and what not, but that isn't what this forum is about it. It is about the hood.

I will add to my last post that I had this hood on a different 06 GT I had many years ago. Loved the hood. I ordered directly from Cervini's website and it came white and ready for paint. The paint shop I had it painted and installed at didn't tell me any complaints about it and it came out looking good.

I think what he is going for is that he doesn't like the appearance from the front, head on, but about any other angle he does like it.

2013 GT 6 spd, GT500 mufflers, BOSS quad exhaust, Roush CAI, Barton shifter & 2 post bracket
CS GT-40 Wheels, Hotchkis sway bars, upper and lower control arms, springs (1.1/1.6 drop) and adj panhard bar KONI yellow struts and shocks J&M caster/camber plates,
BMR Upper control arm mount and lower control arm brackets.

i do want to see it in person from the front it may look better than in the pics. I love my stock gt hood but due to bubbling im left with no choice.

also if you look closely at the adjoining panel fitment, while certain aspects are good, most are not and vary in gap (consistency)......most of the aftermarket hoods I have seen are well, require body work for a proper functional and visual fit. typically more than most are willing to put into it and if you are going to pay someone to "fix" the new hood, you might as well have the shop take your existing hood and modify it to what you want...at least they are starting with a good, solid hood that fits the car (gap consistency).

Doesn't Cervinis have a couple of different versions of their ram air hood? I'm looking into the Type IV Ram Air Hood for my '13, and for exactly the same reason...paint bubbling and Ford's unwillingness to do anything about the well-known manufacturing defect.

I'm also thinking of painting the heat extractor vents body color...makes the hood a little less "busy."

I love my cervini's ram air. It definitely grew on me, I was trying to get a black mamba hood but could justify the price.

I especially like it now that I have the cai and ram air kit. Looks good in black.
