We built a lexan scoop on ours, picked up a lot of motor but very little on spray.... With the lexan you have no problems seeing thru it... Good luck..

You can use an $8 plastic prism from any RV store also to see around the scoop. Simply hang it from the halo bar...works great.

You just look at that instead of actual light?

Lexan scoop picks us up very little in the 1/8th but no back to back testing. Maybe a couple mph. Remember when on nitrous you're supplying your own oxygen directly into the combustion chambers making the air coming into the carb less important. That being said, all those nitrous pro mods have scoops for a reason. Lexan scoop is just best option for vision purposes.

Pro stock type scoop was worth 3mph on a 11 second car over the cowl hood.

With a scoop that is sealed, you are pressurizing the air coming into the scoop, especially down track.

Default Re: hood scoop what's it worth

A good buddy of mine recently replaced his cowl with Don Burtons complete front end and hood scoop, and then had it sealed to the carb. The combo is a sbf, two kits, runs 7.9x at 174 and picked up 4-5 mph by switching hoods. It wasn't a back to back test, but it picked up 4-5 mph over his best mph ever, so I would have to say it helps a little.
