They should put a hood scoop on this.

  1. They could make that an option on this and on the Z06. The hood scoop on the "Camaro SS" gives the car 15 more HP. Thats the difference from the SS and the Z28.<!-- Signature -->

    I like the hood below, it is a functional heat extractor hood.

    The hood above is not made by Lingenfelter, thought it was on the Motor Trend test car. The hood is manufactured by Mallet ( www.mallettcars.com)and is made of carbon fiber. The things cost about $1,600 after taxes and what not. I'ves seen a 2001 coupe rolling around with it here in St. Louis. it was pretty cool.

    This is my favorite hood,

    I don't know. Would be pretty cool to pull up to any car you see on the raod in your stock looking Vette and then blow the doors off your competitors. Even the new Lingenfelter Vette dosen't have any outward signs of modification. In fact, Motor Trend even commented on how the engine even looks and sounds stock. First thing I'd do is drive to south beach and find as many Ferraris and Lamborghinis I and leave them all at the lights!!
     
  14. Re: They should put a hood scoop on this.

    a hoodscoop would be disgraceful, a cowl induction hood like on chevelles will be nicer.
     
  15. Re: They should put a hood scoop on this.

    word up .. this would look so mean with a scoop !
     
  16. Re: They should put a hood scoop on this.

    sounds like a normal one my arse, ive heard the 02 lingenfelter go, and its nothing like the standard vette!

    and they probably didnt put a huge hood scoop on cos its turbos not on a blower/supercharger and it would ruin the aerodynamics
     
  17. hoods and induction

    The only thing that hood scoops or cowl induction hoods do is create room for larger intake manifolds and air filters. The cowl induction hood also lets a little more air exit from the engine compartment, but this is indiscernable in terms of horsepower. Perhaps you were suggesting factory ram air installation on Corvettes. I personally feel that the engineers at GM are smart enough to not necessitate such measures. To put ram air on a car makes people think twice about changing the induction system on the car. This, of course, is quite detrimental to the aftermarket industry. And therefore I hope that they do not take this route.
