Billy, just for the record, I'm the new owner of your "cousins" Cuda. The 6" cowl hood was too small so it's already off! With my tunnel ram and 2 1050 dominators the carbs were too close to the hood. Instead I'm hoping to use a Pro stock style hood scoop (ie similar to DTHEMI's). But if it doesn't work out I'm upgrading to an 8" cowl scoop from AAR Quality Fiberglass just for you




Aar doesn't offer an 8" cowl hood. Glasstek would be your best bet for quality after Aar.




Went with the forward facing, but thanX for the heads-up on AAR. Pic of hood while we fitted up with the new scoop.

I like the vintage SS look and of course the Mopars did not use a cowl. But it's up to the cars owner as what they like on their car. I just like the factory racer look myself. Ron







ooooh yeaaaaaaaa!

the original design of the cowl hood scoop was to direct cool air by picking it up from deflecting it off the windshield




And it does function fairly well. There is a high pressure area at the base of the windshield.

And to those that posted they went slower, have you given any consideration that the difference in air (be it less or more with the cowl hood) affected your a/f ratio at certain speeds?

Just a though.....

Cowl hoods DO FLOW AIR into the engine.

I dont like the looks either.




but if you study the various configurations and placement you will see that many are too far from the glass to catch the air and let the scoop do it's job.




Since the advent of the taller heads/intakes from Indy, Preditor & B-1 as well as class rules its clear as to why so many are using cowls but some followup questions for the cowl hood.....

1) Should you seal the cowl scoop to the carbs?

2) How close to the front windshield should the end of the cowl scoop be for maximum air? I see some real close to the windshield almost touching it and others 6 inches or more away from the windshield.

thanks,
Doug

I don't like the cowl scoops on a Mopar. I guess they are functional, but look like they belong on a Camaro or a Shevelle. I don't even like the aero scoops on an old Mopar. I like the ones correct for the period. I don't even like the really TALL MW and early Hemi scoops on the NSS cars. I like the AFX scoop on the NSS cars. Again, period correct. They actually had those back then. Leave the aero scoops for Comp or SS/GT cars with modern bodies. Too bad they don't make a TALL T/A scoop. I think that would look good on E-body cars and probably A-body Dusters, etc.

will probably use a cowlhood, cant realy see any other way of hiding a aircleaner on top of a dominator wish will sit very far back on a lysholm twinscrew supercharger under anything else than that, i have a sixpack scoop on my current hood but i think that will have to be changed, i realy dont like having both carb and aircleaner up in the air and vissible

I don't like them on many mopars but I really like them on E-Bodies but they have about the same bodies lines as 67 - 69 Camaros. It's just a personal preference. I don't think I would get anywhere near the complements I get on my car if it has a 6 pack hood on it.

If I had to use a mopar hood, I would want one like on the Killer (Hemi scoop) I always liked Mike Daugherty's cuda in KOS with that hood.

Why not the guy that owns that car can do whatever he wants.... period he paid for it not me or you.... I say use what you want and what works for you my friend is on his 68 charger because he needs the hood clearance.

I say they all look like an upside down bass boat molded to the hood.
