Air goes into the cowl scoop, it does not come out. I made a baffle for mine to let air in and keep water out.
Here is a shot of it in the making.

Thanks guys I get it now, yet a forward facing scoop makes more sense to me....
But you cant argue that cowl hoods dont look good.

I just wanted to point out that most cowl hoods that get put on newer cars today are completely 100% unfunctional!! The most benefit you would get would be a lower under hood temp. The origonal cowl hood had a scoop at the rear that opened like a typical forward facing scoop.

" a scoop at the rear that opened like a typical forward facing scoop" that it did not do, the cowl scoop is open to the rear,
at the windshield base. From the windshield base the air gets drawn into the engine compartment.
Not much more can be said.

I have a 1 piece fiberglass front end coming for my 70 Camaro. (Due Date was actually nov. 11, but that's another story). It will have a 3 1/2" cowl hood scoop. That will be almost enough height to cover the blower and the injection hat will stick through the scoop. It's not meant to function as a cowl scoop at all. Just a different look. Saw a 69 camaro set up that way. Maybe the angle of that wide flat front on the scoop will provide some down force on the front end at the traps? And should also scoop some clean air into the injection hat, Not that a blower should need any help.


I might be dreamin', but maybe the local cops won't hassle me as much if the blower appears to not stick through the hood so far (3 1/2" less than no scoop?).

cowl hood

well, a cowl hood releases heat out of the back which is a really good thing to have, and if you have an older car with a carb. and like me, i have an edelbrock alluminum intake which sits really high, and my flat hood wont shut over it, so cowl hoods also rise above your stuff if it sits too high, that , and yes, they do look cool.

snod83: I dunno if you've ever ridden in an cowl hood chevelle before, but the door opens towards the back, not the front. I got to see it dozens of times, darn kid drivers.
