I want one too, but I'd go with a 2" like the Steeda one, which is made by Kaenen so quality is good. I like cowls, but not big ones, I can't see over them!! haha.

The Steeda is a great option. click on the link to see some pictures of the hood on some Steeda Mustangs.

We also have the Steeda Ultralite Full Cowl-The only FULL cowl inducted hood.

Agreed, 3" cowl is good, 4" is too much for my taste.

IMO a cowl hood (tastefully done) makes any mustang look bad a** (as seen by the pics above). Heres a pic of mine. I would go with AM. Good prices and excellent customer service! Here's a pic of my junk..
