    Thanks for the good words. Here is a link to my Heritage photo collection, some are 'borrowed' many I shot.

    That connection to the airbox must not be the actual air flow. I wish I had taken better shots under the hood. If you have not seen the article, here is a link that describes the air flow better.

    from the article "We even installed a solenoid that makes the Shaker functional, just the way that it did on the original. It opens the door and sucks in cold air...The base of the Shaker was fabricated by our GM Performance Division to duct the air forward to the throttle body...."

    just being a little picky but the interior would look better in the traditional aqua instead a powder blue ... .. but I do love the overall outside look ...

    I am copying the Heritage, but am not tempted to go for the blue interior. But we have to keep in mind the car was built for shows, not daily driving.

    +1. Good way to sum it up. As much as i've wondered what it would look like, I don't wanna see it. It's perfect the way it is. Anyone thought about butchering a superhawk for a shaker? If you raise the scoop, it may work. Plus it's a more aggresive hood than the sleek beak, and you wouldn't be doing it to a Firehawk hood

    I e-mailed big3performance about their shaker scoop. They informed me it's only function is as a heat extractor and that it actually does shake. I'm considering this kit because it seems resonably priced. The only issue I'm having right now is finding a more stock appearing screaming chicken decal that will fit in the space available on the hood, I don't like the one that comes with the kit.

    thats kinda the thing about TAs .. You look at them and say it needs some kind of decal or strip or something .. but most of the time nothing really looks right on them..

    My recent redesign for mounting the shaker now allows the scoop to actually shake. I cannot use the stock rubber weather stripping gasket since it both dampens the shaking, and mars the paint on the underside of the hood, but I plan to use some stick-on weather stripping I found at Ace Hardware. My new support is shown below.



    It clips to the fuel rails and attaches to the scoop with velcro. My next step will be to replace the clips to the fuel rail with more permanent clips and I think the design will be finished. It will shake and provide heat extraction, but no air intake. I may change my mind later, but I think I'll stick with FTRA for CAI.

    I'd show the scoop mounted, but the car is in paint at the moment.

    That CETA looks awesome with that hood, don't get me wrong I love the WS.6 hood. I wouldn't take mine off or mod it in any way, except maaaybe to put the ram air decals back on it, but that CETA looks very nice.

    "are you going for a tall one"

    Nope, my design is adjustable for height. Here is the height I like best.
