How Hood Scoops Work

Aug
28

Hood scoops are not necessary technology for automobiles to have but they can enhance a car’s performance if designed properly.  Many performance cars use hood scoops for just that reason.

The way that hood scoops work is actually pretty simple, but not widely known.  An engine gets oxygen from the outside air. Cool air is denser than hot air and thus has more oxygen in it, which produces more power when it burns. Since the air in the engine compartment is usually considerably hotter than the outside air, if the engine takes its intake air from under the hood, its power output will be reduced. The solution is allow the engine to breathe cooler, denser outside air, such as from a hood scoop.

2015 ROUSH Performance Ford F-150 Front AngleWhen Ford unveiled the all-new aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 in January of 2014, Ford enthusiasts were pretty excited. The first truck of its kind, the F-150’s weight was cut by a whopping 700lbs (depending on engine, body style, and bed size), boosting fuel economy as high as 26 mpg (depending on what engine is packed under the hood and options chosen). We couldn’t wait to get our hands on the new truck to ROUSH-ize it! The final product is here, and we are excited to unveil the newest ROUSH to our line-up: the 2015 ROUSH F-150.

The 2015 ROUSH F-150 features a host of aggressive body additions including: a ROUSH Front Grille with Clearance Lightning, ROUSH Front Bumper Cover, ROUSH Fender Flares with Clearance Lighting, a square “R” Hitch Cover, and a ROUSH License Plate and Frame. This F-150 wouldn’t be a ROUSH vehicle if it didn’t sound as aggressive as it looks, so a ROUSH Side-Exit Exhaust System has been added to provide a deep rumble.
