Default Side scoops

Just looking for info on side scoops. Pro's and con's. I would assume ford racing would be the best. I know they come primed but that's not a problem. The ford racing one's are the same one's you could've ordered for the factory Rt? I would want the stocks one's. I haven't seen a good of pic of Shelby with them yet.

Default Re: Side scoops

I put FRPP scoops on mine. I like the look with the side scoops down low, seems to help make the car look lower and wider, verses the side windo scoops. Fit was great, and I really like the FRPP look best of all of 'em. I also like the fact they actually had a grill instead of a sticker inside the scoop. No holes to drill. Just adhesive, and they are stuck on there good (speed test midway thru triple digits and no problems). A couple of pics below......

What year car? 07-09 are the same. 10 and up are same. Shelby has the Super Snake scoops for 07-09 finally back in stock or the CS6 style too. I didnt see any FRPP scoops for the 07-09. Im getting the Super Snake type.
