Hood Scoops add a distinctly old school muscle car look while also providing improving air flow through modern engineering. Capitalizing on sleek aerodynamic designs a hood scoop will give your pony a breath of fresh air and improve mpg. An upgraded hood scoop is a great modification for the enthusiast who wants to improve their performance and look good while doing so. Hood scoops offer much more than that intimidation factor as your pony flies by incoming traffic on the highway.

A hood scoop allows air to flow into the engine compartment either to help cool the engine or to deliver cooler air to the engine air intake which can improve performance because cooler air is denser than warmer air. And engines like denser air. The air in the engine compartment is warmer than the ambient air outside the car because of the heat produced by the engine. In this Ferrari above the designers moved the velocity stacks outside the engine compartment and put a scoop around them. So, not only does this improve performance but it looks really cool.
