GruppeM Aerodynamics Carbon Exhaust System Covers Porsche 996 Carrera 4S Turbo 01-05
A bonnet/hood scoop is an upraised component on a vehicle's hood that allows a flow of air to directly enter the engine compartment. Scoops are a great alternative to buying an entirely different aftermarket hood with vents and are usually less expensive. Whether you're looking to feed your engine more power-building air, or simply wish to give your car a performance makeover, there's a scoop out there for you. There are two basic types of hood scoops, open and closed ones. Open hood scoops are enclosed on all but three sides and raised as to catch additional airflow, particularly at higher speeds. Closed hood scoops are more decorative, but can also increase aerodynamics and therefore provide better fuel efficiency and speed.
Even if your car has never been on the race track, you can still grant itself an unrivaled glance at the performance. An aftermarket hood scoop is what you'd like to maximize your vehicle's look with such an amazing intensity of the acceleration. These great accessories are a quick, easy, and affordable way to dress your car without having to put in a lot of effort. Vivid Racing has the finest hood scoops capable of attracting attention on the road and dropping the jaws as you drive.
In almost every factory car with hood vents, there is some sort of ducting to direct whatever heat they are trying to remove. The goal of the hood vent is to reduce engine bay temperatures. This can lead to lower intake temperatures and protection to components in your vehicle's engine bay.
Usually hood scoops are placed right above the air intake that directs air flows to the engine compartment. An aftermarket hood scoop can not only perform as a fashionable accessory but also as a major component that helps achieve a maximum flow of air to the engine and enhance your vehicle's performance. You will find air scoops in our market that optimize the productivity of your heater and air conditioner, increasing the airflow to the HVAC system. Whether or not you're striving for fashion or feature, pick a top-notch hood scoop and you can't really go wrong.
Although some car owners use aftermarket hood scoops only as a piece of decoration, some customers go for practical hood scoops that serve the purpose for which they were designed – to improve airflow to the engine and raise horsepower. You can select from our online store, from a range of quality hood scoops. Constructed by world-renowned brands from the premium materials, they'll add a specially made touch to your car, SUV or truck.
Hood louvers, also called hood ducts or cowls, cool your car's engine by allowing heat to escape. After all, heat is the enemy of performance and longevity in the automotive world. The same reasons you would look into buying a cold air filter are similar to reasons why you would invest in a hood duct. The goal is to get the hot air out, and that needs to happen before cool air can come in.
When purchasing a hood scoop, vent or duct for your car, it is important to get one that is not just attractive, but also functional. Find the style and type that appeals to you, and choose a material - urethane or carbon fiber.
