August 31, 2004will a 2001-2004 GT hood scoop fit directly onto a 2000 GT?...my cousin wants a scoop for his 2000 GT and Im trying to make sure he can buy one have it painted and just put it on his stock hood...does anyone know?
August 31, 2004The 2000 hood is exactly the same....just no scoop, so it should pop right on there.
But hey, one of the only things that makes the '99 and '00 unique is the lack of a raised hood scoop. Everything '01 and up is scooped. V6's don't have scoops at all I think.
August 31, 2004I think they look better with the scoop...but you are right it does make them different
August 31, 2004I've seen some late model V6's with great looking stock hoods. I was impressed. Must be 2004 models?
August 31, 2004mine came stock with a hood scoop. but then again it was with the pony package
September 1, 2004I was planning on adding a hood scoop to my 2000 GT but like Galaxie said, 2000's are unique because of the lack of a raised hood scoop
September 1, 2004the newer V6's have the 00-01 Cobra hoods on them
September 1, 2004Isn't that something? They do look like the Cobra hoods. '01 anyhow. ('00 Cobra doesn't exist...unless its that critter with the R)
Here's a 2003 V6 and a '01 Cobra
In 2000, the V6's had metal hoods and the Cobras and GTs were composite. I wonder if the V6 here is metal or comp?
September 1, 2004You will need to drill through the hood for the mount screws
We did this for Matts V6 hood when we added the 02 GT scoop
September 1, 2004Should fit.
In fact, the whole hood will swap over, too. So, if you want, you could check around at places like Mustang Parts Specialties in Georgia, or local folks upgrading to an aftermarket hood.
If you get lucky, you might be able to find a USED hood, already painted the same color as the car, with a scoop on it. Then it's just 4 small nuts to swap between the two hoods and you don't need to drill, paint, or anything!
September 2, 2004Im not going to install it for him...he will have to take it somewhere for that...he just wanted me to see what all would be needed to have one put on it...so Im trying to do that for him...lol...I hope he doesnt want me to put it on for him anyways
