Introduction To Induction
Everyone loves an induction cowl hood. An induction cowl hood
implies "muscle lives here!" And if the stock two-inch rise cowl
hood does not say it loud enough, you can always get one with a four inch-rise
from the good folks at Goodmark Industries, Inc. This one fits 67-69 Camaros.

radiator for shedding heat.
Many of the induction cowl hoods cars sport these days are
wanna-be's... posers... look-alikes... muscle-free. A true induction cowl
hood seals and becomes part of the air cleaner housing, ducting cool outside
air to the carburetor. Air that passes through the radiator and over the
engine block before reaching the carburetor picks up a lot of heat along
Colder air is denser, more compact, so more of it can get
pulled into the cylinder before the intake valves close. Greater air volume
(which means more oxygene) in the cylinder equals more horsepower upon ignition.
The common rule of thumb is that every 10 degrees you drop the temperature
of the incoming air, you gain 1% in horsepower and torque.
