Exclamation Installing a Mach 1 shaker on a 2001 Mustang GT

Hey guys, I need some help with a future project I'm planning on my 2001 GT.
I am wanting to attach a mach 1 shaker to my stock 2v engine. However, the 03-04 mach 1 of course as you all know had a 4v DOHC 4.6 liter in it.
The problem is that the brackets for the shaker will not fit on a stock 99-04 mustang GT. Many companies and people used to make a custom bracket for the shaker to fit on a GT/Bullitt. However, that was 2-3 years ago and the companies that were making them have gone outta business and the people that custom made them are no longer making them. So basically, I will have to figure out a way to fabricate my own brackets. I have been searching the Internet for the last 2 days and have only found pictures of one person who did it but he included no measurements of the fabricated parts. But I know that many other mustang GT/Bullitt owners have been able to make their own and fit a mach 1 shaker on their ponies.

If any of you could send me pictures of their brackets and some measurements that would be great, or even if they know of someone still making the brackets that would be a lifesaver.


Problem #2: I am having trouble finding parts.

I have searched the Internet again over the past 2 days and I am having trouble finding a COMPLETE Mach 1 shaker assembly with mach 1 brackets. What I mean by complete is: the shaker itself, the bracket it sits on, and the complete tubing all the way to where it connects to the air filter heat shield/air box.

If anyone knows where I can get on for a good price, you once again, would be a lifesaver.


If you have a Mach 1 shaker installed on your 99-04 mustang GT/Bullitt or have a friend who does, then please help me.

I don't want a CDC. I want a Actual mach 1 shaker from the mach 1 itself. I am going to put a mach 1 hood on my GT and bolt on the shaker that came from the Mach 1. Many people have done this. The reason I don't want a CDC is because they won't fit a mach 1 hood and the black appliqué stripe in my opinion looks stupid. Plus I don't wanna cut a hole in my stock hood. But thanks. I understand why you thought that.

Bump, if anyone can find a mach 1 air box, that would be great also.

Thank you very much. That would help ALOT. cause I think I know how I'm gonna make the brackets but I'm not sure how to high to make them nor how long they gotta be.

Here's some cell phone pics. They suck and yes it's dirty under the hood. I don't drive around with the hood open, so I don't care.











And here's what it looks like closed



I bought the hood with this bracket already made. It didn't stick up high enough to suit me so I spaced it up a tad. On the top if the plate the balls mount for the shaker to pop onto.

You can see it mounts to the alternator plate on the front side. And on the rear it mounts to the 2 bolts on the backside of the throttle body

I will agree with you... it is pretty dirty under there.. lol

But I love the look of the Mach 1 shakers. I've always wanted one, but since I got a full body respray, Im worried about the paint not matching.

I would search Craigslist withing 2 hours in every direction from you. That's what I do whenever I'm looking for parts and can't find them on here. Good luck!

I hate pulling the cops and drying the plug holes out so it doesn't get cleaned up under the hood much... I live on a dirt road so I pretty much wash the outside every few days and the engine bay gets no attention

Thank you so much. That should help me get the ball rolling. Are the back measurements the same?

Cars Parting Out

They part out mustangs and have an eBay store. They are fairly pricey IMO but they have everything you would need without having to piece it together.

Ahh! Fail. Quoted the wrong person, anyway. Are the back brackets the same height as the front?
