Is anyone running one of these? I am down to AAR and Glasstek for a hood for my car and I would like some measurements off of a production one if anyone has one. I think AAR will only bolt the hemi scoop on where Glasstek sells the hood with it molded in, so Glasstek is the way I am leaning. Thanks for any info.

I have an AAR fiberglass bolt on Hood. It also has the tall superstock scoop. What measurement do you need?

How far from the back of the hood does the scoop start?

I have a tunnel ram that is pretty tall with the air cleaners on it. I do not think overall hieght is a problem I am a little concerned with placement of the back of the scoop though.

I really want a Hemi Scoop but a cowl might be my next best option.

I have the Glasstek molded on scoop. The hood is great,but if your going to race the car there's a few things you need to know. BTW, that cowl hood will gain you 2mph in the 1/4 vs the parachute/hemi scoop.

Wow, I knew it might be worth something but that is alot.

Choosing a hood is stressful haha, especially when I like the look of the stock hood so much.

I have a bolt on Glasstex hood with a Hemi scoop. The scoop is slightly larger then the carbon fiber hood from Cenergy that i had.

You can also buy a flat hood and mount the scoop as far back as you need it to be. Working with fiberglass is not difficult.
This Glasstek tall Hemi scoop is mounted to an AAR hood. The hood had the 4" tall scoop, but had to swap it out to clear the taller Indy 3X intake

I had a Glasstek hood with the scoop molded in from Glasstek, it was spot on, with very little finish work needed.

Update on this, I went back and forth for weeks. With no hood on the car and poor details from the hood makers I couldn't bring myself to order a hood with a scoop on it. So I ordered a glasstek pin on flat hood. I took the throttle bodies off of the tunnel ram and set the hood on the car. Fits perfect, now I just need to get some pins and cut a hole.

Nobody could provide me with measurements of the scoop placement that made me feel confident enough to order a hood with a scoop, the rear throttle body is pretty far back and I couldn't risk it not fitting. Now I will either bolt a hemi scoop on from glasstek, or a cowl, or just leave the throttle bodies peaking out the hood.

Notes for those shopping, glasstek had great service, met the timeline they said, and had a quality product. However they want $320 to add one of THIER scoops to THIER hood in house, that seemed ridiculous to me and is one of the reasons I stayed with a flat hood. I wasn't cool with paying them another $200ish for the cowl I wanted then another $320 to put it on.

$320 is only 5 hours just for labor, maybe 4 hours for some. Plus materials, $, to attach. I don't think I could do it in 5 hours with all the tools, parts and resin on hand. I did a lot of fiberglass work on my last car and it's a slow, dirty job.
I think the scoop goes to the back edge of the hood.

It may not be out of line, I don't do that kind of work. It just seemed high, they also raised the price $40 while I was shopping hoods maybe that made me bitter lol.

Just checked my 69 hood (hanging on the wall 5 years) scoop is about 3" from the back, if needed I took a photo.

I don't have a glasstek hood on my car but I will say their fit and quality are great! I have their doors and trunk lid. Both required zero filler and little trimming to look great.

The GlassTek flat hood turned out good. I will likely add a cowl or Hemi Scoop to it. It couldn't have fit any better really.

Thinking out loud here and not telling anyone what or how they should do something. I bought a brand new flat hood from AAR back in 1999 with the intention to cut a hole in it for a tunnel ram. I spoke to AAR before any cutting and he told me since I was cutting thru structure to fiberglass in new structure before I cut. So I cleaned the underside of the hood where new matt would lay in. Cut some 1/2" thick 4" wide strips of celotex foam insulation board. (Hood upside down on lawn) After positioning the foam planks on the underside I glassed them in thus tieing them into the existing structure. Next day I cut my hole and the hood remained just as rigid as out of the big box.

Your Barracuda looks lean and mean with those carbs sticking thru.

I think your car would look good with one of those smoked lexan carb scoops on top.
