Default Modded Stock Hood?


Greetings, my first post, hope iím in the right section. I searched for a while but couldnít find a similar thread.

Im interested in modifying my stock Ď08 Bullitt hood for functional heat extraction, and was wondering if anyone created their own instead of buying a premade hood. Iíd rather keep it aluminum, functional and retain maximum durability. I running a Department of Boost set up with low key aero mods (mostly under car).

I drive long distances with this car and not much of a daily driver at all. I consider it similar to a HI-PO 289 and realize itís position of just a fun car, but do want to be as efficient on design and changes as possible. I considered cutting up a newer Mustang (12-13 dome) hood and incorporating the functional aspect of it into my hood. Iím from a performance motorcycle background where we made most things from scratch. Any related experience, pictures, failures/success, or attempts AND pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thank You. watso

Yeah, most I could fine were hoods, but you can buy the vents, and do your own
cutting. I drove my '08 450+ miles, and didn't have any problem with heat.

So, if you want the vents, you will have to buy them, and cut the hood for them.

You searched here, but how about Yahoo or Google? Found some interesting results
with those... Here is ONE example: https://www.americanmuscle.com/hood-...1012gt500.html

So, you will be buying something like that, and there are different kinds...

Also, the 10-14 hoods are different, you would also need to replace the headlights, grille, and bumper
cover. There is an 05-09 hood on Facebook marketplace, torch red, for $200.00

The skin is not what determines the durability of the hood, the inner panel does, the skin is
attached to that. Make sure you do not cut into the inner panel.

Thanks for the reply. My interest is in a 12’-13’ hood would be to cut it up and potentially rig weld the functional aspect into the S197 hood. The other consideration is to design & sink fabbed Heat Extractors
into the hood. I’m not interested in off the shelf, not that they can’t be usable, but I’d prefer use aluminum.

Thanks for the reply. My interest is in a 12’-13’ hood would be to cut it up and potentially tig weld the functional aspect into the S197 hood. The other consideration is to design & sink fabbed Heat Extractors
into the hood. I just haven’t measured and done the math yet. I am inquiring as to if anyone else’s efforts on this same subject. I’m not interested in off-the-shelf, not that they are subpar, but I’d prefer use aluminum.

I familiar with the various offerings on line.

Well, for aluminum, you're going to have to go out of the Mustang realm, and say, look into JEEP or SUV
heat extractors, like so:
http://hoodlouvers.com/product-categ...-hood-louvers/

They have a WIDE range of sizes there. If the vents stick up, you can cut the hood,
and mount them up through the hood, so you don't see all the dots around the frame.
