Yes that is my understanding too, the same location as the PJ. Maybe you left coast guys can compare the PJ location to the CDC and let us all know.

I'll have to see what the final production unit will look like. As it sits now, like Luis mentioned, it sits a little too high for my taste.

It sits just as high as the shaker in my car, maybe a little higher. I think in these pics the red air box below the shaker makes it seem that it sits higher than it really is.

The dimensions are 11 1/2 in from rear edge of the opening to the rear edge of the hood.

I think you're right, it's the red airbox that's standing out.

Thanks for the dimension. I hope it doesn't match my CDC opening, all I need is this thing to be thrown into the blower selection mix.

Looking through some older pics I had in my 'general' Mustang folder, I couldn't help but to post these funny pics.

Haha, "rice cooker"

I've come to realize, that something is always going to go on, when you have 4 cars...earlier today, I helped out a lady who had been in a wreck...then I've been having some weird shimmying with my Grand Cherokee, when I went to take it to the dealer to have them looks at it, I found out what was wrong before I got there, I could smell the brakes cooking, so I got a stuck caliper, and the B**** at the counter says, "youre gonna have to leave it, we can't work on it today, it'll be Tuesday", after I had called them to make sure they could do something today, so I took it to a good shop, and I'm thinking the whole setup is screwed...What a day!

Oh yeah, congrats on the MT cover George!

Ah guys, I'm getting anxious...... taking the car to Brenspeed this weekend- dropping it off for some "slight adjustments" to the supercharger. Man, I can't wait!

4 cars?
Keep the Stang, sell the other 3, and buy one dependable DD.

Not anywhere near as cool as all this blower talk but a cool mod none the less.

UPDATE:

Well got my car back today. LTs and Prochamber with GTA muffler. Sounds MUCH louder. Little bit of a slurr on low RPM accels(this normal?) and at WOT is like driving another car. Sounds crazy good. I deff want stingers or another set of mufflers though for a deeper sound. Car feels much smoother then witht stock system. Overall I cant wait till it all breaks in. Just curious what does an exhaust leak sound like? Just want to keep an open ear to sounds just incase.

Supercharger. As far as the deal he's offering me. Hes getting me a Polished Vortech HO Air to Water I/C, tuner, fuel pump, injectors, spark plugs, Mafia, installed and custom dyno tune for well under 6k WITH taxes included. He'll also install guages as many as I want for one install charge whenever I get them. I'm pretty happy with the package price. Price good?

Brenspeeds package is price good. But for a few hundred more I'm getting the thing installed and dyno tuned. If not I'd prolly get the Novi 2200. But that kits 5k alone.

One more interesting mod.
http://www.mossmustang.com/Shop/View...eIndexID=65787

Tom-I don't know what you have planned but I'm sure it will be badass.

Jon-Don't know anything about L/T's since us Cali guys can't have them. I'm sure the car sounds badass though. Stingers will only add to the badassness.
