Should I bolt the scoop on or take it off ??

Was a hood scoop ever an option in 92? I bought this scoop for 100$

Not from the factory.....but many a dealer did things to sell cars...including installing scoops. Instead of bolting it on, check out 3m adhesive tape (specialty for those type of parts)

looks good in the photo. Might look better if it was the color of the car. Just a suggestion.


2006 GT, Strut Tower Brace, Gas Hood Struts, FR Intake Plenum cover, Metal Fuse Box cover, Moroso brake reservoir cover, Rear shock tower brace, Front Bumper Lip Spoiler, JVC DVD Head unit w/ back-up camera, satellite Radio and USB input, 2 - 12" sub-woofers, 4 - 6"x8" speakers, 2 - 6.5" speakers to replace the door subs, 3 amplifiers, LED lights under the hood and in the trunk, chrome e-handle on parking brake handle, chrome cup holder trim, and trunk lid cover with running pony emblem.

It will all be personal preference. Trying to think if I have ever seen a fox with a scoop before. Like stated above if you aren't sure, but want to try it for a bit you could always use 3M to attach it.

Current Garage
(11.)2012 GT500 silver with red stripe, SVT performance package, and Recaro seats.
2018 Honda Civic Type R
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!)

I’m gonna have to vote nay. The two consecutive humps don’t look natural. It looks too much like an “add on.”

You’re kinda right mr. I’d like to see other fox body mustangs on here and see how others modified them. I bought my ride with subframe connectors, headers, catback exhaust, shift kit and 2500 stall torque converter, cold air intake.
Now I redid the secondary ignition system and timed it 12* btdc
I want to change the appearance of the auto shifter bezel etc. Any good ideas on for the shifter?

It looks like a factory hood scoop from a '80 Cobra or '82 GT. There were many aftermarket copies.

The front will not sit flush so don't do it unless you wanna fix the holes you drill in the hood and repaint it!!
