Well, since there is another white gt in my town with draglights.. I figured it's time to change the exterior appearance of my car seeing as most of the engine mods are completed.

Now, I went with a Svo cobra r hood to simply because it was different. I wasn't sure about the looks and even in these pics it doesn't look to go together with the car much but after having it on for a few days.. and in person it is actually growing on me and looks decent. I didn't want to do the normal cowl or mach hood like everyother fox owner. So tell me your thoughts, flames etc.. on it.

Also you'll notice I removed the saleen wing in favor of a Steeda tail. Now again the steeda wing is better suited for an lx model I know this because i've owend one as well but never had the chance to pickup one when I owned my lx so i had to do it.. besides the saleen wing on a gt fox is played out in my opinion. AGain let me know the likes/dislikes and flame as you want.. im a big boy and can take it :cool:

Dont you have an EFI 5.0? If so, how are those ram-air inlets in the hood going to function?
I like the wing...I just dont think the wavy-ish design matches the overall boxy design of the rest of the stang....

Yes it's EFI and it's not going to be "ram air" per say.. it's simply going to provide fresh cool air over the intake manifold is all.. The back of it is also the same as a cowl hood so it'll be pushing air in and pulling air out the back.. other then that I really wanted to shed the weight of the stock hood and a different look.

yeah that's why I said it's better suited for the lx model but i want to be different.

Well, the motor is gonna be seeing a S trim charger in it's very near future possibly over the winter who knows.. see how well the syclone holds together on the streets with this cold air now :)

Are those light masks on the back??
(Sorry I'm not good with American cars)
No, they are from an older mustang.. I believe I took off an 85gt? but only came in black.. I had them painted white to match

Nice stang dude. I do love older mustangs. I say put some black mesh in the "ram air" intakes. Good way to get some fresh air to cool down the engine.
