ok, i know it's a pretty shitty peice from a performance standpoint, but i really like the look of it. the only thing that really bothers me is the gay engine "dress-up" cover. is this a necessary peice? can i get away with just not putting the dress up cover on? all in all, i really think the shaker is worth the price (especially when doing the cutting and **** yourself) and i'm willing to drop some change on it after i get some exhaust.

and before you even say it, no i don't want a supershaker. i don't have the money for it right now and probably won't in the next couple years.

but anyway, i'd really like to get some opinions from everyone. especially the guys with shakers.

The cover is an integral part of the mount so you have to install it. BUT, it's just plastic so it's really easy to trim to suit your style. Take a look here Show me your shakers - The Mustang Source . There are a number of pictures which might help you decide.

I like them, and if I had some extra cash lying around, would be more than willing to get one, but last time I checked they were like 750 dollars weren't they?

Only time I would go and get it is once I'm done with everything bolt on wise, which it looks like you're nearing, so this is just another toy to knock off the list.

I just have to say it though, that cash could easily go to a nitrous system, or towards a used/new super/turbo charger. Seems like you get things done on your car, so it looks like it would just be a little more waiting in your case.

But great buy IMO for the look of the car.

thanks man. honestly, i think once i get the exhaust, i'll be damn near done with performance mods for the most part (at least thats what i say now). i just really wanna try and balance out performance and looks. i don't want an 11 second street car or anything. i'm really kinda wantin to stay n/a. idk why, but s/c or turbo setups just don't appeal to me that much. nitrous is a thought though...

Hey 101fng, I know you're not looking to get into a super shaker, but I thought you might at least enjoy looking at this.

Additionally, what 101st unit? I spent 5 years at Campbell. USAF TACP. :D

Here is my Saleen Shaker set-up if you want to take a look.
I did read you do not want the Supershaker but thought you might like to see what a Shaker looks like.

i've drooled over the supershaker since the day it came out. i just can't afford it and boost really doesn't appeal to me as much as it used to. but it is a ****in sexy peice... god i can't stop lookin at it lol

and i'm in 2nd brigade (STRIKE!!), i actually live right beside some AF guys. i'm not sure if they're TACP though. i can't imagine what else they'd do though being attached to the 101st

My son found a used shaker system for his '05 and it took me about 2 hours total to install including cutting the hood. Just use a fine tooth jigsaw. We trimmed the plastic cover down to practically nothing and also trimmed the duct to match up to his Procharger conical air filter. He paid $350 shipped for it.

Just a little side note...the actual shaker scoop itself is the exact same part as the original from what I here.

Yeah, I couldn't stop looking at it either...until I saw Tiger's Bullitt...wow!

Your AF neighbors might be TACPs, Weather, or any various Support Staff we have...here's the test, are there empty beer bottles/kegs on the lawn and a steady stream of slutty girls going in, but suspiciously not coming out? If so, then you've got yourself some TACP neighbors! ;)

yeah, i'm definately considering saving up for a supershaker now. brenspeed isn't too far of a drive... i like the idea of keeping my factory warranty lol. but the install seems too easy to pay $1000 for. i really like the idea of not having a CAI clutter up the view in my engine compartment :D

how much boost are you running anyway? i noticed youre running a significantly smaller pulley.

well, they must not be TACPs lol. i never see sluts going in or out of those barracks and i don't think i've ever seen a single beer bottle over there... maybe they're mormon TACPs. but i noticed one or two of them wearing ACUs which made me think they were TACPs.


and btw i've found a couple new cdc shakers for 685. it's still a lil expensive for a bunch of plastic but it's better than the $799 shakers AM offers. oh well, i think by the time i actually get my exhaust and bolt it up i'll be gettin ready for another deployment. so i'll probably come back with plenty of money for a supershaker. i'll just play this by ear i guess.

I installed my Shaker about 2 years ago and It was, in my opinion, a good investment. It is indeed more cosmetic than performance, but throwing some added cool air into the intake mix is almost always a good thing. I already had a CAI when I installed this. I got my Shaker on eBay for around $500.


EDIT:
I trimmed the "skirt" off of the shaker a few months ago, it adds better access to engine components and I think it looks a lot better too.

Put one of these sticking out of the hood!





Seriously, I'm working on the prototype for a "real" CAI. 4" stainless exhuast tubing, ceramic coated of course to help with repeling the engine heat, and it flows right into my Roush CAI. Working on the "air box" to mount the scoop onto. I think it will be literally a cool set up that actually functions as it should.

Go ahead guys, laugh and flame on, but you will see how the end product comes out soon.
