Going to ask this here as I think its probably better target audience than the 66 forum.

66 Satellite - Street car
505 inches Indy EZ-1 heads with both dual plane and single plane options. I am trying to be proactive and realize I may not have enough clearance with either of them for decent air flow. I am not opposed to preserving the current hood and building a second one (either steel or glass, dont care)

I am not quite sold on the original wide 66 style race scoop - nothing about this car is overly original, and I am as much about function as looks way more so than period correct.

So in an effort not to snuff out this engine when finished I thought I would search the net for some pics - thinking you guys may have some ideas and possibly a plethora of pics you have taken at various events of late.

Cold beer for the one I like the best :)
First off 66 Satellites had no hood scoops that year, so anything added isn't original. Personally I like the 67 RO type hood scoops, but there are plenty of options in the aftermarket.

This is a Coronet and not a Belvedere, but the body style is basically the same.
67 GTX scoops will probably do you no good as they were just decorative to begin with.
I made my own - bought a second hood to cut as I didn’t want to cut my original. Made my own dimensions and then wrapped the hood and scoop in satin black. It’s not for everyone but I don’t like having things everyone else has either.




Mine has a Max Wedge which looks good but it doesn't add a whole bunch of height maybe 1 -1/2"?

There are taller-than-stock maxwedge scoops available.... but I am firmly in the 67 RO scoop camp. Imo, nothing else would look right.
And please don't cut up an original hood! Lots of pluses to a glass hood with the scoop molded in.
I cut up my 62 hood for a scoop. It looks okay.... but not a day goes by I don't regret not buying a glass hood with a max scoop for it instead.

I have a couple original hoods - the one that is on it, I wouldnt mess with. But I have one that came off the tube chassis 66 sitting in the shop that will get a glass one.
here's a few members cars too
click on the photos it will say who's, who's
hope they don't mind

67's pretty much the same look

IMO the 69.5 style of 6bbl/six pack style
with the rounded of edges & openings
on anything earlier than a 68, just doesn't look right
the 66-67 IMO (take it or leave it I don't care) it needs the sharper edges

67 Belv. GTX Sat. etc.
