Shaker hood scoop question. 2006 Mustang GT

I am about to pull the trigger on my next appearance mod, a CDC shaker scoop. I know it is just for looks, but I really like the look, so I am going for it. Now, I do have a few questions for anyone who currently has one. I try not to use the Mustang for bad weather driving, I have a department Crown Vic for commuting and emergency calls/investigations, and most family trips are with the wifes Freestyle AWD, but I occasionaly do have to be out in bad weather. If I do get cought in heavy rain or (god forbid) snow, is there going to be a problem with the shaker? I have an MMR CAI, so the air won't be directly piped into the stock airbox, I THINK it should be OK, but any advice would be appreciated. And where is the best place to get one (best meaning cheapest).

Thanks,
John

I don't have a CDC shaker but I do have the Saleen Supershaker Supercharger. I have no issues with the rain and it is my DD. The Saleen setup is more direct line than the CDC. You should be fine.

I have the CDC Shaker Hood with a S&B CAI. It was installed by Regency. I have driven my Mustang in heavy downpours at 60 mph with no problems. Just search for CDC Shaker Hood. The only problem I have found with the hood is that if you need to get to anything on the motor you will need to remove the hood and the two bolts that have to be removed are hard to get to.

Hi Bearbone, do you mean you have to remove the scoop or the hood itself?

It'll be fine... Been running one for years with no issues.

Not necessary... Cut the bottom off those two front eyes and just slip them over the throttle body bolt heads. Easy on/easy off!

Thanks STL, I was hoping you would chime in. So only the scoop needs to come off, not the hood, I get it now.

Have had the CDC Shaker now for almost a year. Driven in rain, Snow, Ice, no problem. It is also not just for looks. Although I have not dyno'd, I do feel a good increase in power stepping on it above 40 MPH.

Correct... Mine technically just sits on top of the intake manifold. The closed hood is what keeps it snugly in place. Been that way for almost 3 years with no issues.

The only thing I would suggest is to cut the stupid shroud down. It covers up wayyyy too much of the engine. You could do it like STL did or leave the MUSTANG emblems on the sides (like I did). This gets rid of the removal problem. All you need is an 8mm socket and a flat head screw driver for easy removal.l

Too much to list and nothing really that great. If interested check out my profile.

Mine is completely shroudless. Just a skeleton of its former self.

Hey STL, do you have a picture of how you did that? I agree the cover is just a lot of plastic.

Pics in my gallery. I just trimmed all the excess plastic off and finished it off with some weather stripping.

Thanks STL, I checked your pics and see what you mean. Next question, where can I get the emblems for the side of the scoop (either 281 or 4.6).
