Bought an assortment of parts from this guy including a factory tach dash assembly with all gauges and a 428pi aluminum intake so the shaker would fit. Point is I negotiated on the package so I don't have specific figures for the shaker. IIRC he originally wanted $1,500.00 for the shaker, but I figure I have a little less than $1,000.00 in it. Here is his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
. He specializes in hard to find mustang parts and may have what you need. As stated above, the shakers do not line up correctly with all intakes. For instance most popular Edelbrock intakes sit the shaker too far back to line up with the hood cutout. You may want to buy another hood (as I did) so you can keep your original. Re-pop hoods are another issue. If you buy another hood try to get one made from the original Ford tooling. The trim rings are readily available at most mustang parts houses. With the shaker, intake, new hood, paint, and parts I probably have $3,000.00 in the conversion.
