New Hood Scoop, it looks large but has only 3/4" above air cleaner, from Unlimited Products, very inexpensive (kinda looks it), will do for now. Will be putting a new master cylinder (have), rear gears (have 3.55s-3.73s) probably go with the 3.55s and with the gears put ARP wheel studs in (already have in fronts), to be ready for this years adventures.

Hello Chuck, I need a hood scoop too. and the first one I went with was open in the front also, and after getting caught in a couple of unexpected rain showers I said that's enough of that crap. I never intend on driving my car in the rain but living close to the ocean sometimes they blow through even when the weather person says" no rain today " lol. anyways I got sick of hanging up my air filter to dry. When I redid my car I went with a cowl scoop. Now I'm going back to the garage to fill the wood stove and work on my bigger master and 4 link rear suspension.

Rob C., are you psychic, on my way home last nite my left rear turn signal bulb went out (1157) have replacement, will replace next time I drive it. William G., I had the new scoop on backwards at first, just looked funkier then it does forward, with no inner front fenderwells I don't even drive my "B" when the ground is moist, I know eventually I will get caught by the weather though, just seems it has to happen.

Check out this one. Dave Craddock makes some very high quality stuff.

Thanks Phil, I would really like to have Dave's Hood, he sent me the specs. and it's 3/4" too short, I've a Holley StripDominator intake that's port matched to my ported heads, I have thought about his hood with a GT350 scoop I already have, just balking at buying that great looking hood and cutting a hole in it.

Didn't the old Mitsubishi Eclipse have a hood bump that might be graftable onto your hood?

Just a thought about this scoop. Might it have been more visually pleasing if it was turned around so the taper matched the lines of the hood and also pulled air from the area at the windscreen/cowl? May be more subtle that way. Just wondering

I wondered too, Don F., had it on backwards first, then forward, then backwards, just liked forward better. Think I'm going to get another used steel hood, then try a couple different things on this one until I find the look I like, have Chevy cowl, a small snorkle, and my Fabricator wants to make me one. This will work for now but I think there's definitely a better look out there.

Hey Chuck,

I think that scoop will look good once it's painted.

I ended up going with the Preform RV8 cowl induction hood. Solved my hood clearance issues but I have the Edelbrock intake. Gotta fabricate the cold air induction from the cowl this Spring.

I really do like those cowl induction hoods-do think one would look great with a GT350 hood scoop (1 5/8" tall) (have from previous engine-edelbrock intake) on it (that would work with my intake set-up). Yours looks awesome Bill K. P.S-my carb. clears the bottom of my hood by less then a 1/4", have a very small but functional air cleaner with a K&N flow through top, the base of it is above the hood.
