The folks at Classic Design Concepts (CDC) are at it again with the release of a new 5.0L Shaker Hood System for the 2011+ Ford Mustang. CDC has had great success dating back to the 1999 Ford Mustang with their V8 and V6 “Shaker system.” Now, Mustang owners can give their 5.0L an intimidating, classic look with the CDC Shaker featuring its pronounced, heritage cast aluminum hood scoop. Like all CDC products, the 5.0L Shaker is manufactured in the U.S. and designed and engineered to precise O.E.M. specifications for excellent fit and finish.
CDC was one of the first companies to offer restyling and performance products for the 2010 Mustang and continues to lead the pack. “Not only will your Mustang get that muscle car look, but this component also works as a completely functional Cold Air product to boost performance with an increase in horsepower,” said George Huisman, CEO of CDC. “And the Shaker’s advanced water management system is specifically designed to divert the elements away from your engine, resulting in years of trouble-free enjoyment.”
The Shaker utilizes all factory attachment points, contains OEM level under-hood materials and retains the factory strut tower brace. The installation requires no paintwork and utilizes the design of the factory aluminum hood for a straightforward process. Metro Detroit Ford Dealer, Tom Holzer Ford took delivery of the first 5.0 Shaker Hood System.
“The CDC Shaker adds a nice degree of uniqueness to the 2011 Mustang GT,” added Curtis Wolfe, business manager for Tom Holzer Ford. “We’re pleased that we now have it in inventory to demonstrate. It’ll appeal to both heritage and newer Mustang customers due to the eye-catching appearance.”
CDC’s Shaker installs using the stock aluminum hood, which has a factory-stamped recess in the hoods inner layer. This element was included by Ford specifically for the CDC Shaker to maintain the structural integrity of the hood after a hole is cut. Classic Design Concepts first revealed the 5.0L Shaker System prototype at SEMA 2010 and it is now available for sale. Included are all necessary mounting hardware, air management system, hood template and detailed guide for a seamless, professional installation.
