around the entire shaker it has a rain gutter with 4 rubber downspouts. any water that doesn't make it into the downspouts goes over and runs down the plastic cover to the ground. The cover covers almost the entire motor. No problems.StangOwner2B said:Not too shabby! Very nice. Question about the shakers. Is water an issue when driving/parked in the rain? Does the inlet somehow redirect water? Also, what about water creep into the engine compartment and possible shorts. Thanks for sharing!

Actually a hole saw, fine tooth metal blade in a jigsaw and a file. That is what CDC recommends...Cut like butter..brnrkm said:Said Robin Hood to Little John; "Ahh, but faint heart has never won fair maiden!"
He prolly used a drill, high speed cutoff wheel, sanding disk and a file to make the hole.
it has been dynoed at 6 RWHP. It is noticeable on the throttle response. I did it for mainly looks and it is functional plus will increase airflow which increases MPG.06GTTungsten said:I have done a lot of research on that CDC Shaker, but I have not found any benefits to it except looks, which, don't get me wrong is worth it. Is there any noticable gains? I am not to familiar with the gains that shakers in the past have brought to Mustanbgs and other cars. I would guess around 10 Hp for a model such as this?
