I bet mine does.
Thanks It was **** hard finding one under 100,000

I'll get some engine bay shots later today Next week I'm going to go shoot with my friend and get some 'before' shots done

Yours is loud and has drone; don't confuse the rumble with the drone I love the way your car sounds Bill (IMO that's the best sound for an S197) BUT it doesn't have the rumble of an SN95. I think its more the muffler location than anything else. Yes, the 4V is the sex but I think 2V's come in second. I hate to admit it Okay, its a lot easier now that I have a 2V

If I go with the hood scoop, updated side scoops will be a must!

I have outdoor plumbing; GT or my man card gets pulled You're allowed to make the mistake once but never again!

Luis, I would remove all of them.
S197's have such clean body lines that fake scoops do not work but it works for the SN95's. Personally, the hood scoop is going to be the equivalent of the bullitt grille for me; I will take forever and a day to decide on getting it

Here's two GT's. One with scoops and one without.
Seeing this makes me go back to the scoop decision

Something we can all agree on: OEM smoked headlights, Mach 1 grille delete and Mach 1 chin spoiler are a must. Period.

I'll admit, I never payed too much attention to a modified SN95 exhaust sound, but I will now.

I can tell you the the fox 5.0 exhaust sounded wicked, especially with a lopey cam.

How about something more functional? Like a shaker hood?

They can sound really good... I have heard quite a few that were pretty awesome!

The Shakers look awesome on the Sn95's! I love the look of the Mach's... Definitely one of my favorites from that style...

Hood scoop or bust. There is no option. Look at how lame the one without the scoop looks.

Don't forget the honeycomb panel for the rear.

Yes and no. It kind of does but mine has more rasp to it. Not a good comparison considering a) that's a 5.0 and b) it has headers

Here's an exact set-up but the video doesn't do it justice. When I found out the car came with an O/R X, I was bummed because I thought it sounded like **** but its completely different in person.

I know it sounds different in person compared to videos, looking forward to checking out yours this weekend!

That linked video sounds pretty good at idle, but sounds funny when he rev'd it.

Fixed I thought the same thing until I heard it in person. I don't know, it all could be in my head

Looking back at your pic, I don't know.. I prefer the look of your current hood more than the scoop. It just looks cleaner.

I'm going to wait until everything else is on to decide. I do like that its cleaner and less is more but the hood scoop makes it mean.

I agree. Leave it as is for now, enjoy it, and spend the money on more important things... like textbooks.
