Long gone are the days when hood scoop mounting required a hand full of pop rivets and a hack saw. Although the fundamental purpose is still the same, a hood scoop is no longer a single component. Instead, a hood scoop is now an entire system made of several elements designed for maximum efficiently and functionality.
In addition to the scoop itself, you will need to consider the following to get the most out of your induction set up.
- Airflow Positioning –airflow in and around the hood scoop
- Positioning – for optimal driver visibility
- Clearance – for throttle linkage, solenoids and other mechanisms within proximity
- Isolator Tray – to maximize and restrict airflow to desired areas
- Hood Scoop Stand – for secure fitment and easy removal for maintenance
In episode 16 of the Door Slammer Build Series, Tim McAmis details every facet of hood scoop mounting that will yield the greatest results in terms of performance and usability.
This includes several tips on suitable positioning for airflow and visibility, utilizing a hood scoop stand and isolator tray as well as final trimming and finishing.
TMRC’s Door Slammer Build Series provides unprecedented access with a detailed look into every aspect of building a modern door slammer.
From the chassis table to body mounting, interior, paint, final assembly through initial testing at the race track, you will get to see it all take place in over 20 episodes of high definition video!
