Dodge Challenger Shaker
The Dodge Challenger has one of the most fascinating histories of any American-made car. Dodge first introduced the Challenger as a pony car in 1970. This compact, performance-focused sports car was designed to be the most powerful pony car on the market. Unfortunately, pony car popularity began to decline in the early 1970s, and Dodge halted production on first-generation Challengers in 1974.
In 1978, Dodge introduced the second-generation Challenger. Instead of a pony car, this release was a four-cylinder, two-door coupe designed to compete with vehicles like the Honda Prelude and Toyota Celica. Dodge retired the second generation in 1983.
The Challenger returned to production in 2008. This third-generation Challenger was largely modeled after the 1970 Challenger R/T, bringing back the pony car style. It was a hit upon its release and is still going strong today.
At Top Flight Automotive, we have an extensive inventory of aftermarket parts for all three Challenger generations. Our selection includes high-quality shaker hoods that improve the look and performance of your third-generation Challenger.
What Is a Challenger Shaker Hood?
A shaker hood — also known as a hood scoop or shaker scoop — is an air intake mounted on top of the engine’s air filter. Because it fastens directly to the engine, this component shakes with the engine’s movements and vibrations, hence the name “shaker.” The shaker cools the engine by bringing additional airflow under the hood.
Benefits of a Challenger Shaker
A shaker hood cools the engine more quickly than a standard air intake system. It shortens the distance the air has to travel before entering the engine’s cylinders, reducing the amount of air resistance and preventing the air from heating up. As a result, cool air can pass through to the engine more smoothly and efficiently.
The more cool air that enters the engine, the faster it will combust. A shaker can boost your Challenger’s horsepower by maximizing the influx of cool air to the engine. It also provides a “ram air” effect — at high speeds, more air is forced under the shaker hood, supercharging your engine’s power.
Aside from their performance benefits, shaker hoods add a sporty look to cars that drivers love. Many people add shaker hoods to their vehicles just for the effect it has on the car’s appearance.
Why Buy a Replacement Challenger Shaker Hood?
Your Challenger’s shaker hood protects the engine and other crucial internal components. Its design also affects the overall look of your car, giving it a more aggressive racing-style appearance. Because your hood is subjected to weather, elements and wear and tear, it can become damaged or worn over time. The hood can also incur damage if your car is struck by an object or involved in a collision.
It’s essential to replace a damaged hood as soon as possible to protect your car. Even small scratches can affect your Challenger’s value, and larger dents and cracks leave your engine’s most vital components vulnerable to damage.
Installing a replacement shaker hood is the perfect way to upgrade the style of your Challenger. You’ll get a hood with a factory-fresh appearance and all-new components, revitalizing your Challenger’s look and performance.
