So is the scoop half installed or half gone, using the proverbial glass half full metaphor. stirthepot


Reality check, that half the population is smarter then 50% of the people and it's a constantly contested fact.

Just a normal pass..no back fire....hood is fixable. I have another hood I will put on for this coming week.

Maybe a bigger hole in the hood. if you are really hauling the mail the air has nowhere to go so something has to give


Thank you

Well, on the bright side, if you got crossed up enough on the big end, it would still be effective. eek

My first thought was adding holes in the rear to allow some of the air a path out?

Well you should have expected that after it was 1/4 of the way off after your pass last week. Did you run out of Gorilla glue?

Apparently the Gorilla Glue is not strong enough....

Probably a good indication that if you ran the formula for hood scoop size vs engine demand you'd find the scoop is too big and creating excessive drag. Thankfully it didn't damage the windshield tho.

Scoops can catch a ton of air. Years ago when I put a 440 6 pack hood on my old Duster the first pass I noticed it was bowing up in the middle bad. This was only running mid 11s. It broke the middle support. I figured it was cracked or something so the next week fixed and supported it and it broke it again.... eek

It was a hinge latch setup and the scoop caught so much air it pulled the latch setup out of the hood eventually. Had to pin it down.

Cowl hood is back on it....At least as long as I remember the hood pins. Mean while, I am looking for a more original looking six pack scoop, maybe even a little shorter. I think I can save the hood itself, and bond another scoop on it.
