Just had a polished 550 whipple installed on my 08 shelby gt vert at a local ford motorsport dealer. To my surprise the air box is different on most of the installs that I have seen. When I called whipple and ford motorsport they explained that all 08's and above have to have the factory type air box due to emissions. Ford motorsport advised as well as the dealer who installed my kit that this is a modified air box that flows better than the cone filters. It has a very alrge k&n with open bottom box. I do not know if this is true or not but wanted to get some opinions on this. The car drives great but needed some feed back on this.

Scotty, just want to say the GT 500 wheels look great on your GO Shelby. Something about it stands out.
