Grin 69-70 Guys, help me pick a Shaker Assembly/Kit

I have a 1970, Boss 302 clone with a 351C which I have decided to add a shaker to. Could the guys on here who have actually went through this process chime in and help me figure out the best option. I doubt I can afford to pay for an original shaker, so what brand or venders have the best one....Or are they all the same and I should shop by price??

I assume aftermarket is my way to go and since I currently have nothing shaker, is it best to buy a kit which includes the trim ring and template?

Thank you in advance for sharing your advice

Has no one ever completed a shaker conversion?

Here is one option I have researched in the past. I am working on a 69-S-Code and pieced together an original unit over time. I have also seen posts on other sites about using a conversion ring for your existing standard air cleaner base and you can source the mid-plate, scoop, seal and trim ring elsewhere. You can also use the shaker from the late model Mach 1's with an adaptor. The link below is for a fiberglass unit. Hope this helps.

I converted my 69 S code hood scoop car to a shaker, but I was very fortunate to find a re-conditioned shaker assembly from a local mustang parts guy. Had everything except the snorkel, support bracket, and drain tube. Used the snorkel from my old air cleaner, bought the bracket from NPD and made a drain tube from some tubing I had in the shop. 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: ponywarehouse@gmail.com . 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.

I am sorta leaning toward the Scott Drake C9ZZ-9600-S for around $500 plus $125. for the trim ring. Anyone have anything to add (or subtract) from this thought process?

Since it is a clone I am building, I really don't want to have $2,000 to $3,000 invested in a shaker....

There were 7 different 69/70 mustang shaker assemblies. Make sure you get one that fits your engine and make sure your intake and carb are compatible. Here is a link to some good information on shakers: Shaker and Ram Air Systems

But that one is more and how much would a base run?
