I also have the over the top stripes, but on a black car. I added the scoop and think it looks mean. As for the gap. I went around the lower edge and used black silicon and it looks great. I know it's not functional, but the shaker scoop covers the engine, and at least this one was designed with the hood in mind.
I voted YES! Some colors do look better then other. It helped change my mustang for the better.

I like the way they look. The drag effect is minimal and Mustangs have had non-functional scoops since the 60's. Same for side scoops.....of course I'm bias....I say scoop it. I really think it looks nice with the crease stripes from bob white (mine are drying as I type).

I am trying to decide on whether to get the Ford Mustang GT Hood scoop put on. What ya guys think? I am on the fence.
Borrowing MustangGTPilot's car as reference
I went with the scoop because I felt the hood is just too big and flat, it makes the front have a more flowing and rounded look. As for functional (Shaker) that looks like a ping-pong ball balanced on a basketball, totally out of proportion. Now there is a guy near me that made the OEM scoop functional but I don't like the idea of cutting large holes in my hood.

I do think that if the Ford hood scoop was:
#2 molded into the stock hood
Then it would look fantastic.....but that has yet to be an option. The Saleen hood is close, but way too overpriced! The RK Sport one looks good but then looks too much like a Camaro hood!
I have yet to see the NEW Steeda hood in a solid color, but that is probably gonna be my favorite thus far!
To me the stock hood is great if the "power-dome" would be about 1" higher, but not extend any farther forward!
