Cold Air Intake Scoop
The Cold Air Intake Scoop is an auxiliary component of your vehicle's air intake system. They are designed to improve and increase the flow and velocity of the air into the combustion chamber. They are also called hood scoops, as they are fitted into the hoods of the cars. The scoops channel the air directly to the engine. There are three features of air scoops: cold air intake, ram air intake and intercooler exposure. The cold air intake scoops draw in dense, cool air directly into the engine. This cold air which is higher in oxygen content is conducive to an improved performance as the engine burns the fuel efficiently. This counteracts the power lost due to the under-hood air which is hotter and less denser, and thereby not conducive to effective fuel consumption.
Ram air intakes take advantage of the air drawn in when the car is moving at high velocities, taking in air at a pressure higher than atmospheric pressure. The ram air scoop has a plenum that gradually increases in cross-sectional area. This design allows for more static pressure to be generated as the air flows into the engine, increasing the density of the air and thereby the power produced by the engine. Supercharged or turbocharged cars can be fitted with top mounted intercoolers to increase the density and reduce the temperature of the air produced by the compressor. If you are looking to give your vehicle that extra boost of power, you should fit an intake scoop to boost its air-intake.
