Has anyone purchased these? I'm really close to pulling the trigger on them. Hope they don't go on sale next week. Just looking for some feedback on them.

I already bought the SHELBY ones in black. I'm selling them to buy the race versions. I should have bought them first??? Yes, I changed the bolt on the PS tank to match.

I did the same, on BOTH counts!
I bought the "Ford Racing" engraved covers in blue, because Shelby covers were never in stock. Now I'll have to sell them.
And, I also changed my PS tank screw to match.

Ha!

By the way, folks, the new race covers differ SLIGHTLY from the first version, as they now say "Shelby" in big letters, and "American, Inc." in smaller letters. Our usual logo.

I've got them on the local CL for $325.00. I'm willing to take a near $100.00 loss from the original SPP selling price including shipping but no more.

I purchased and installed these as well....I would have liked the "Race" version, but too much for my wallet. I know they will show a lot better than my black ones as they are hard to see in the engine compartment unless in the sunshine. I still love them compared to the stock plain/bare metal ones that came on the car.

Either way, you will not be disappointed....besides, I hear it is worth an extra 50 HP and 48 TQ (and that is at the wheels!!).

Just send me that hood and ill put it on my car instead. Save you some time!

Seriously though, after I install the new mufflers I'm gonna turn the car around in the garage again and do the valve covers.

When I get done finally with all my goodies and finish cleaning and shining up for 2013 post some pics of my SGT with:

Shelby GT brake duct system
Shelby polished valve covers
Shelby Turbo mufflers

She should be a pretty fine sight to behold!
