mach 1 hood scoop "shaker" question

if i put one of these on my 2001 gt, i understand you have to cut the hood and install it. would i actually have to go out and buy a mach 1 hood also, or will my gt hood work just as well? i know the mach 1 hoods were raised. just curious. anybody have pictures of a gt with a shaker on it?

i read somewhere that there is a plastic piece taht you attach to the car hood that brings it up a little to match a mach 1, but also heard i could get away with the black sticker look.

anybody have any advice.:walksmile


2003 Mach 1 DSG

You can actually just use your stock hood. You won't get that extra bulge like the real Mach 1's have, but you can just use the hood you've got to save some $$

i would recommend buying the Mach hood...heard a lot of people complaining about the black "Applique" that they need to attach to the hood....think it was posted on stangnet but after talking with some guys who installed the kit and cut their hood, they were not very satisfied with the look or the performance gains.....

I personally wouldn't put the black sticker thing on there. If you want that stripe, get someone to paint a flat black stripe on there, looks better for one, and its quality kicks the sticker's ass.

Theres a kit out there (www.yearone.com sells one - ain't cheap) that can be installed in your car. My experience is that it doesn't help performance, and may indeed restrict airflow a bit. I tried a similar "ram air" setup on my 2002 that worked not at all (didn't actually hurt, but certainly didn't help). There's a real long "ram air" thread on this forum that contains mountains of data.

Its an expensive and relatively involved install, with small payout on the other end. if you're not experienced at metal working, you're likely to do real damage to your hood (my 2002 has a fiberglass hood - I think your 2001 does too). Cutting neat, pretty openings right where they need to be without splintering out past the trim is not easy...

My advice: Spend the money on other mods and leave your stock hood alone. If you can find the Mach 1 parts in a junkyard somewhere for a good price, no problem, but I predict this does not happen (they aren't numerous, and the folks who latch onto the totaled ones know what the parts are really worth - try finding Bullit intakes for less than $1800!).

I can't see this project costing less than $500 - which can get you some real horsepower with any number of other upgrades.

Luck with whatever you decide to do - just let us know what happens.

Question Any conclusions?

So, in the end... Will a Mach 1 hood be compatible with a Roush or CDC Shaker system?

Any necessary changes that need to be made to the hood/system?

If on the other hand I decide to go for the KarKraft shaker (The OE Ford Shaker) where do I get the duct and brackets to mount it on a GT?

Hope you can help me.

Regards

As a Mach 1 owner I can tell you, the bulge is there for a reason. Its not for looks. Your gt has a 4.6 but its not set up the same way as the Mach 1. It needs the hump for clearance.

BTW a functional Cowl Air Induction would be more benefical. The Shaker would not be as effeciant, although kick ass looking

But if I have a CAI which performs quite fine, already have a mach 1 hood ready to mount and go for a Roush or CDC shaker kit just for the looks, what do you think of that set up?

In fact Im thinking on using a CDC adapter for shaker and vortex blower... THAT IS Performance...
