Finally! Hood Insulation for the ST That Fits!

Recommended Posts

Edger's

 

I was able to order the correct hood insulator for the 2019 ST this week and attach it today!

 

For master mechanics, such as myself, it took 6 minutes.  The rest of you should be able to do it under 5 minutes...it's that easy!

 

The clips are already attached...just hold up to the hood, and  "push and play".

 

I have enclosed a picture of the actual part # on the bag.

 

The engine has always been quiet, this pad absorbs some of the road noise and sounds closer to a Lincoln inside than before.

 

Cost is about $115 plus tax from your local dealer.

 

I received a Mustang Club discount plus they knew I was going install it myself.

 

Thanks

I am surprised that more of you have not bought this insulation as it does quiet down road noise.

After an extended period of use, do you feel this is still 'worth it'?

Yes.

 

Most definitely.  The ride is quieter on normal streets.  Less tinny sounds.  The turbo whoosh still comes through for those times when I floor itl

Did this insulation stop the hood from vibrating so much at freeway speeds? I’ve noticed that mine seems to vibrate at speeds above 70 as if it is getting a lot of buffeting to the point I’ve considered adding reinforcements underneath.

Hello Big Chief:

 

This will not stop the vibration if the hood is loose. Is not that heavy.

 

Vibration can be fixed by adjusting the black bump stops so that the hood does not flutter. One side may be more flush than the other.

 

If that does not work, then slightly loosen the bolts in the back as a last resort.

 

Thanks

I’ll give that a try. I’m going to add a few pieces of dynamat in strategic areas under the hood under the insulation pad when I install it to make sure it’s nice and quiet and the hood is solid.

Adjusting those stops worked a treat!  Thanks for the advice. Now I have to take it in to figure out why I’m getting a chassis vibration at freeway speeds. Have you added an intake or exhaust to yours? I’ve ordered H&R springs and a full set of Bilstein B6 dampers so I’m looking forward to the lowered and grippy life.

Hello Big Chief:

 

Glad the adjusting stops worked!

 

A common cause of vibration:

1) tire out of balance, or weight fell off, causing that

2) Flat spot on tire from hard braking or peeling out.

3) Bent rim from a pothole.

4) tire nonconformity from the factory such as a bubble, warped sidewall, etc.

5) Aliens from a small planet have invaded and made your tire a launching pad for their world domination.

 

#1-#4 require a visit to your dealer.

#5 require the precise use of a 12 gauge shotgun.

 

Hope this helps!

What was the procedure you used for adjusting the stops? I just bought the hood insulator and installed it, but I still have a bit of vibration, thanks for the help.
