What is the Shaker Hood Scoop on the Dodge Challenger Muscle Car?
The Dodge Challenger Shaker is a tribute to a unique part of muscle car history. Back in the days of carbureted engines, there was always a struggle to find the most efficient way to get cool air into the engine. The more cold air you can get into a V-8 engine the more power you will make. With this Shaker hood, the intake is mounted directly onto the top of the engine. The intake then passes through a hole in the hood.
The Challenger Shaker RETRO muscle car has a great image, power under the hood, and is fun to cruise around in. When you put the intake on the top of the engine, you can then see the whole thing shake. With the 375 HP HEMI engine there certainly is a whole lot of shaking going on!
