Hey I have an 02 3.8 auto and I was wondering whats better... A shaker system or an cold air intake? And which is better with a tuner.... For more horses?
You don't need the Mach 1 shaker hood it will fit the 00 to 02 hoods you just won't see itCAI and tuner are supposed to give some decent gains. The Shaker system i've heard is as someone said Just for looks. But Lord, does it look nice. Also you must consider in order to use the shaker, you need the shaker hood i believe. Thats a little too much cost if it were me.
Like I said lol.Mach 1 owner here, the shaker makes no difference whatsoever on a dyno. On the street /strip though, you definitely see lower intake temps. I measured both with and without and the differences were cool to note. Also, a mach 1 with the shaker is a tiny bit faster on average through the quarter than a mach with a standard cobra hood. All that said. It isn't worth a grand to have it done right. The cdc kit makes you cut a rough hole then covers it with a Plastic cover. Your alot better off finding a mach hood too imo. The shaker is so much fun when driving. Passengers love it too.
