FUNCTIONAL SHAKER HOOD SCOOPS were only available on Pontiac Trans Am's from 1970-1972.
These highly desirable scoops open to allow air in for improved performance and close to keep the outside elements out. To add this sought after feature to your 1973-1981 Trans Am or '77 Can Am, a Conversion Kit is now available designed with an electric solenoid for continual 12V current to improve durability.

An easy do it your-self kit for 1973-1981T/A's and 1977 Can Ams.
This kit wires directly to your fuse box (ignition side) so the flap opens when the engine is started or, purchase the optional kickdown switch (listed below) that will activate the flap when stepping hard on the accelerator. The '73 - '76 shaker kit closely resembles the early '70 - '72 factory components. Once installed, it will be hard to tell them apart.

Should you prefer to just install the flap only, it will function differently than when using the solenoid. With just the flap, it will open part way at part throttle, closed at idle, wide open at full throttle.
If you rather try this first, then later purchase the other components, the flaps can be purchased by themselves.
