Functional Hood Scoop

Can anyone suggest a website or give any guidance on where to get one or even how to set on up ?



Thank in advance

Functional hood scoops will differ. If the function you are looking for is engine bay ventilation, then the SRT 10 or the newer RT hoods can be opened up to provide ventilation. If you are looking to ram some air for the engine, the brick shape of our trucks does not get you that air unless you go way big/tall with the scoop (that means a custom addition of a tall scoop to the hood). The best place on the truck to grab fast moving air is the grille/bumper area, which doesn't look as cool as a scoop

Hopefully members that have functional hood scoops will chime in soon.

I'm reluctant to make a comment since I don't know if my hood removes any heat or not. It is vented at the windshield. But I assume it helps. No one can say for certain unless they have a way to measure under the hood temperatures.

I have the stock SLT hood, since I drove it off the showroom floor I've wanted to have the scoop on her. Or open it up myself. The engine bay gets crazy hot as we all know and the hood is just always to hot to touch. When I was in Alaska I would always have so much ice built up on it from going from hot to cold so fast. I've honestly considered the GTX hood scoop. We can all agree those are quite awesome.

To reduce hood temperatures you can always add insulation. I really need to redo all the insulation on my QC.

Read an article about the area at the base of the windshield being ideal, that is why auto makers have the vents for the cabin environmental there and someone came up with the cowl induction hood.

I'll have to agree. Cowl Induction is the trick.
