Side scoop question


Recommended Posts

The dealer installed side scoops on my GT 500 before it hit the showroom floor. Says they are GT/SC Ford side scoops. Are these the same as installed on the Shelby GT's? The "intake" area of the scoop on my car appears to be a rubberized material. Is this true for your scoops? If so, I've noticed in some spots on my scoops, the pattern seems to be breaking up......little black splotches, if you will, on the back side of the clear rubberized material. Have any of you seen this? Anything to do about it?

 

Thanks!

The only Factory side scoop that was offered by Ford was the part # that came on the California Specials. I personally installed a pair on my GT500 three years ago. The factory scoops have a hard plastic honeycomb material...not rubberish! They require, as well as 3M tape on the outer perimeter, two 19mm holes be drilled into the body for two 'snap-in' pushpin clips. It was damn scary drilling those holes, but the instruction sheet in the box along with a tape-on pattern for the hole location was extremely helpful.

 

The SGT's came with those exact scoops. Some dealers will install the competition's scoops and tell you they put factory ones on, because they are scared to drill those holes, IMHO.

 

As well on this subject, the CS6 and CS8 Shelby cars got the Xenon side scoops. Definitely a different look to be sure. If you are experiencing any peeling or seperation or anything abnormal, the scoops are NOT Factory C/S scoops!

... what BIKEBOY said. You probably have the 3D Carbon with the gel screen inserts as pictured: http://www.stage3motorsports.com/product/3D-691019/2005-09-Mustang-3D-Carbon-Side-Scoops.html. It's similar in appearance, and cheaper, but not the OEM CS/GT scoops. I also installed the the CS/GT scoops on my previous GT, but I didn't drill... The supplied 3M tape worked fine. They have the plastic honeycomb inserts as pictured: http://www.bangastang.com/_e/Scoops/product/6R3Z-63424A62-AA/Mustang_California_Special_Side_Scoops_05_09.htm. The same scoops are installed on the SS as well...
