Default I need some opinions on a car hood scoop!

Hi everyone! I drive a 2002 Ford Mustang, and it's dark blue with white pin stripes, white lettering on the back, and white stripes below the doors (not in the picture because the picture is old). My question is, should I buy a white hood scoop or a blue hood scoop?

I wouldn't get one at all. I took my scoop off in fact, went as far as welding the holes closed and doing body work + getting it painted to get rid of it.

no scoop, Unless it's on a Subaru. I tend to think it's stupid. But that is just one man's opinion.

I would go with a hot pink scoop.

No hood scoop unless theres a big ass supercharger under it!

It will add alot of wind noise at highway speeds, introduce a lot of water and dirt, and just entice people to race you since they thing it may have something under the hood.

I have an evo, it comes with hood scoops, and they do let in a ton of water and dirt, im constantly wiping down the engine bay to keep things clean.

They sell stick on scoops at autozone lol. No more water in there and I'm pretty sure it adds 25hp.

It would be helpful it you attach a picture of your car. I can't imagine if it will look good with a hood.
