    2011-2014 Mustang Talk
    Hey, I have the 2013 V6 Premium mustang and have a question about the SYNC/Shaker system in the car. I know it's probably dumb, but after searching I can't find the answer so I do want to apologize if this is a dupe thread. When using SiriusXM radio, occasionally the title or the artist text...

    I have a 2005 GT with an S-trim Vortech V2 supercharger. I have gotten a killer deal on a brand new CDC shaker kit. Now, I have to put the two together. From what I've read, there are two issues. The first is to make the shaker's "shroud" fit around the throttle body. I understand that this is...

    Hey guys- I recently purchased a 2005 V6 Mustang & I came across an issue with the Shaker audio system. I inserted a CD by pressing "Load", but it wouldn't play.

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi. I heard some rumors that if I were to pull out my stereo, I'd find a 3.5mm audio jack in the back. Is this true? If not, how can I get a jack like this hooked up to my shaker 500? Cheaper is better. Thanks

    5.0L Tech
    I've got a 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis with the 5.0 Windsor. My plan is to take the engine out of the Marquis and put it in my 1966 Mustang (currently has a carbureted 302 from a Granada), making the Mustang fuel-injected. Because the 5.0 in the Marquis is rather power-void, I will be doing a...

  13. Shaker system with aftermarket CAI?

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    I've seen all the shaker systems hook into what looks like the stock airbox and air intake, which makes sense so the air can flow directly into the intake system... I was thinking of getting a shaker system, seems a good addition to an intake system that isn't ready for any forced induction yet...
