K&N's Passion For Racing Provides Inspiration And A Place To Test Carbon Fiber Hood Scoops

 
 
K&N is widely known for manufacturing High-Flow Air Filters™ and Intake Systems. However, many might not know that K&N’s enthusiasm for performance was born out of racing.

This obsession for power continues today with in-house development of racing products used in all forms of motorsports competition. A prime example of K&N’s dedication to racing is our carbon fiber hood scoops and hood scoop pans.

Our on-site composite department builds hand-laid carbon fiber components. The lightweight and superior strength of carbon fiber makes it an ideal construction medium for racing applications. Curing is done in an autoclave where both mechanical and chemical processes ensure precision fitment and structural integrity.

K&N has recently released several new carbon fiber pieces for drag racing vehicles. Part number 100-8512 is our second-generation composite dragster hood scoop. It features a larger opening and improved aerodynamics over our first generation NHRA dragster hood scoop. K&N built this hood scoop while keeping in mind the airflow demands of the increasingly larger displacement engines being used in NHRA competition.

Also new to the line of K&N composite drag racing products is part number 100-8511. This piece is an inner hood scoop designed for use with one of K&N’s pro-stock hood scoops. 100-8511 is compatible with either 100-8506 or 100-8508. This inner hood scoop helps direct airflow by smoothing out the inner walls of the pro-stock hood scoop.

Additionally, K&N has released two new inner hood scoop pans used for mounting hood scoops. Part number 100-8510 features pre-cut mounting holes and is intended to be used on an 8” Braswell dual carburetor setup with a 9.800” center to center spacing. For race vehicles using a different carburetor set up K&N offers a cut-to-fit inner hood scoop pan. Part number 100-8514 does not have any holes and can be cut to fit a single or dual carburetor set up.
