So does it shake?
Lets see some pics where it connects to the air box. Do you need a tune for this?

Your car looks great. I am not a fan of those Shaker systems as it brings very little for the $$. But I have to give you credit for doing the installation yourself. You are definitely the first person that I have heard of who has put the Shaker on a 2011+ Mustang.

Here are some additional photos that were requested. It does shake a little but it does not visibly move that much when you rev it. No tune is needed since the intake tube into the throttle body has not been changed. Still runs pretty much the same.

Also threw in a couple of pics of the '71 Mach 1 as some have requested.

Awesome! I like it.
I would suggest getting rid of the soundtube to clear up some of the clutter look with all the hoses and pipes in there now.

I agree about performance bang for the buck, but that's not why I installed it. I've been doing mods with styling and function cues from my '71 Mach 1. Started with a silver car w/black stripes, added Hurst shifter, blue coil covers, and now a functional ram air set up. Also, I got it on sale back in August from CJ Pony Parts for just over $550, so wanting one anyway, I had to pull the trigger on that deal.

I got some inspiration to finally install it after reading Murda, Inc's post last week, so I wasn't the first.

First, let me say that I am no mechanic, nor show any real mechanical talent. I've done a few mods to my 2011 GT/CS, but nothing major: hood lift struts, Hurst shifter, hood spear decals, new Boss coil covers. So far, so good. But, ever since I saw the shaker hood "option" in the 2010 Ford brochure, I said to myself, "I gotta' have that!" It's functional (for what it's worth HP wise), and it screams classic muscle car style. So I bought the kit on sale last year, but was hestitant about installing it myself. I had never taken on such an undertaking on any of my Mustangs over the years.

But I am pleased to report that, overall, things went well. No major glitches, although I must admit I got lucky a couple of times. So here are my tips if you are going to install one of these. Tip #1 - Follow the CDC tip of applying extra tape to the hood around where you will cut the hood. I forgot and when the layer of tape came up from under the jigsaw, I was about to sh*t my shorts. $900 mistake? No, lucky for me, the marks in the paint are so miniscule I do not think anyone will notice. Tip #2 - I recommend masking the entire hood and cover the fenders. Metal shavings and particles go everywhere. Do not risk scratching your paint to get them off. Even water won't easily lift them off. If you mask or cover the entire hood, you won't have to worry about it. Tip #3 - Make sure that upper and lower trim rings line will line up based on where the upper ring is centered around the scoop, before you apply it with the adhesive. For some reason I had to drill new holes in the lower ring to be able to rivet them together. Other than that, the install went fine, but keep a good grip on your saw (I got lucky when the saw jumped out of the cut and landed on the part of the hood that coming out). But the reward is worth it. I believe Ferris Bueller said it best, "It is so choice!" Now I can say I have 2 functional ram air cars, the 2011 GT/CS with eh Shaker and the 1971 Mach 1 with NACA Ram Air.
lol i didnt even know some of those measurements existed on a tape measure

Actually, I used a sewing tape measure. They go to 60" and are more flexible and won't scratch. You don't need someone to hold it down, just tape it to one side the hood and measure away; they do go to a 1/16th of an inch!

I love it. I just can't bring myself to spend $700 on it. If this thing was 500 bucks I would be all over it. Kinda makes me wonder how they charge so much for some molded plastic and a few clamps.

So this is mainly for looks seeing your pics. The factory intake has input from the front grill right into the box (nice functional design imo), the shaker takes air and routs in through a tube into the airbox. I would imagine there would be no difference at all between the 2. It does look cool from the cockpit I must say.

I would agree. There is propbably not much of an intake boost since that would be limited by the intake tube to the throttle body. But I could block off the lower airbox intake making the shaker a snorkle and go out with the Land Rover group and go through streams!

Nah! :nogrinner
