NHRA Pro Stock Hood Scoop by K&N Produces Less Drag
Pro Stock is one of the most competitive classes in NHRA Drag Racing. During
qualifying, it is common to see each driver's elapsed times (E.T.'s) separated
by hundredths or even thousandths of a second. If a driver can find a
competitive advantage and make his or her car quicker, it could make or break the
K&N has introduced a new hood scoop (part number
100-8507) which offers
drivers that kind of advantage. This ultra strong and light carbon fiber scoop
was designed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). K&N's new design
provides an 18 lb. decrease in drag. The new
K&N scoop also produces more even air distribution inside the scoop, which helps
naturally aspirated engines run better and produce more power. Less drag and
better air distribution can result in quicker E.T.'s and faster speeds from the
NHRA Pro Stock category.
