Keep Your Engine Cool, And Your Car Cooler, With Bonnet Vents

Bonnet vents, or scoops as they are commonly known, are more than a slick decoration. They are the perfect accessory to improve your vehicle's performance. They cool down the engine temperature so your ride can keep performing. While many vehicles come with a bonnet vent as standard or at least an optional extra, you can shop for your own installation as well. While the majority of engines use oxygen to burn fuel, the engine will run less efficiently as the surrounding air grows warmer. The bonnet vent prevents the issue by channelling cooler air into the engine.

Car and truck bonnet vents shopping guide

Before purchasing car and truck bonnet vents, it is essential to understand the differences between each type. In addition to the aesthetics of your vehicle, choosing the proper vents is also necessary for safety. They will protect your vehicle from debris and rust, but they will also add an intriguing look. There are also several ways to install car bonnet vents. Here are some tips to help you make the best decision.

  • There are two types of vents: functional and non-functional. An active vent helps to cool down the hot engine. A non-functional vent is merely for aesthetics. For example, you should choose an active vent if you want to use your car or truck as a race car.
  • Some vents may be too bulky to fit into your vehicle. In this case, you can purchase a single vent to cover the hood. The best-looking models often feature a sleek and modern design. Regardless of your vehicle's model, you can always choose to add a single vent or several to cover a large area.
  • Car air flow vents are universal parts. These can improve the airflow in your vehicle and keep the cabin cooler. They are lightweight, corrosion-resistant ABS plastic and can be easily installed. You can also find one that matches the colour of your car.
  • Stick-on vents can be a perfect finish for a carbon fibre bonnet. They are the ideal choice for DIY cut outs. Be sure to clean the surface properly before applying the vents. In this way, they will last for a long time.
