Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / scoops
English term or phrase: scoops
During the final two years of GT350 production, in 1969 and 1970, the Shelby Mustang was transformed into more of a stylistic exercise, based on the new, larger Mustang.
It was long and wide, with scoops, slots and ancillary curves.
It was a truly imposing footprint, now powered by a 351 cubic inch engine.

toma de aire

A "scoop" is a forward-facing opening in the bodywork that allows air to reach mechanical components that need air for cooling, or for enhanced fuel burning efficiency, usually under slight pressure generated by the movement of the vehicle.

... plenum and induction system, air to air
intercooler, and Roots style supercharger producing 0.5 bar (7psi) - (cooling air enters via the roof scoop)

... de inducción,
intercambiador de aire a aire, y sobrealimentador de tipo Roots que produce 0,5 bares (7 psi) (el aire de refrigeración
entra por la abertura del techo)

These direct the air from the air scoop directly to the mouth
area (top-down ventilation).

Estos dirigen el aire desde la toma de aire directamente
hasta la zona de la boca (ventilación de arriba a abajo).
