Functional Hood Scoop?

I was just looking over the window sticker for my 392 GWE and it includes the line item: Functional Hood Scoop. I know the scoops were not functional on my 2009 SRT8, and assumed this was the case for the 2011 too...I guess I need to go check under the hood...

The hood scoops are functional on all SRT models (2008-2012).

Well bugger me! I learn something new everyday. I've heard more than once (e.g., on TV car shows) "...of course, the Challenger hood scoops are non-functional..." I'd never even checked.

Functional on all the SRT models, with functional meaning that it lets air into the engine compartment...lol.

^^ 1+ the above posts.

They duct cooling air into engine bay - not into engine intake (they're not large enough for what the engine needs). On R/T Classics, they also get the functional scoop inserts (easy to add onto SE, SXT or standard R/T hoods though).

Same case with the '70-'74s (with performance hood) as well - they never had a fresh air hood system. Only the T/A Challenger and AAR Cuda in '70 had hood scoops that fed outside air in the E-bodies.

Actually, I think it lets more air out than in.

You're forgetting a very famous hood that just so happened to go bye the N96 option code...

I was referring to the performance hood (with the dual scoops) that was standard on R/T, Rallye (E-body) and on the current LC Challenger. On the current production car, a shaker hood isn't offered at all by Chrysler.

The Shaker Hood was indeed another option, but it was altogether a different (flat) hood to accommodate the Shaker air cleaner. So yes, a bit of clarification that it was offered '70-'71, but overall, it isn't a common option, when factoring in most of the V8 equipped E-bodies that required 4-barrel, 3 X 2bbl, 4 X 4bbl engines to get that option.

The Shaker was a neat option, but a pain to deal with if you needed to do any work on the carb(s). I remember telling a friend with a 426 Hemi powered Challenger that I hoped it never had a carb fire, because it would burn to the ground before he could get the Shaker off to get to the carbs (actually, there was a trick for putting out carb fires without pulling the breather, but most people didn't know it). The original performance hood was, in my opinion, better for any Challenger, especially with multiple carb engines.
