  1. In the lower portion of the first post in the link below, there is a .pdf with 2007-2009 GT500 production numbers, download it, scroll down to 2009 (I am assuming Coupe?)...and do a "stare and compare" to what you own (and is verified by your original window sticker or invoice information)......In the .pdf below, I see 3 - 2009 Coupes Grabber Orange with "none" stripes........and 1 - 2009 Convert. Grabber Orange with "none" stripes.......It is always nice to have "1 of a few" (with documentation to back your claim up), instead of "1 of many"...... The reason why I mentioned comparing with your original window sticker or invoice is to verify that the car was indeed an original stripe delete car and that the stripes have not been deleted at some point since new. Also, as mentioned in the second post, there is no way to track down the other two VIN's unless you know someone really deep in Ford that is willing to do some deep research for you.....and even at that point, if both are still in service, where are they? in what state(s)? and the state DMV's are not going to disclose information on other owners vehicles...

  2. Shelby made a 2015 Super Snake also, but it was based on a S550 Mustang GT, not a S197 GT500, so you will want to order parts based on the 2007, but also mention that the car is a later build (2015) when dealing with Shelby. The mention of 2007 will narrow parts to some things that are 2007-2009 specific and get you in the right direction to start with..... Those satin door lock knobs may have been something that they kept installing, but it is such a small item that it was no longer mentioned. The map trim is cool. You will need to verify if your car has ATS (Anti-Theft System) because the ATS trim has two holes, one on each end for the ATS system. The non-ATS is more commonly found right now and several are on eBay. <<<It does not have the two holes, one on each end. Here is "w/ATS" at CJPony's..... https://www.cjponyparts.com/drake-muscle-cars-map-light-accent-kit-with-shelby-lettering-satin-with-anti-theft-system-2005-2014/p/HW2297/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIh9vampDY6gIViJ-zCh1_5Ai4EAQYAyABEgKuzPD_BwE I bought a set of those Black Modulares and also a set of the Silvers........only to find that the rear Modulares do not clear the Baer Extreme 6S rear calipers, they are made to clear Wilwoods, like your car. I sold the Black wheels already and now have the Silvers for sale.....A 2014 Super Snake owner in Ohio is interested in these wheels, but I am not sure if/when he will be able to come to Florida and look at them? R
  3. Many 2007-2009 parts have been discontinued/obsoleted over the last few years and actually it has expanded all the way to 2014 so much of the once available S197 GT500 stuff is no longer available. As for Black or Silver, that was the complete block-off plates, there were Silver/Alum. color block-off's also, I have not seen many cars with that option but they are on my original 2008 order sheet from Shelby. As far as I know, all of the Black plates came from the vendor with Silver rivets and the Shelby shop sprayed them to all Black. I am thinking that some of the "Authorized Mod Shops" did not spray the Black plates to Black rivets, and that is where I have seen some with Alum. colored rivets, and then probably that extra step of spraying them all Black went by the wayside at some point in Las Vegas also? Did you get a chance to check you door lock knobs, are they Satin Silver? From what I see in my Super Snake spec. cards, the Map Light Accent and the Silver Satin door lock knobs were listed together as part of the interior upgrade items..........but it appears that they were no longer listed sometime in 2010. I have 4 unique 2010 specific Super Snake brochure cards, the earliest one with the 630hp FRPP and the 725hp KB list those two interior items, the other three do not. <<<This one 2010 brochure is the only one to list 630 and 725, the other three show 660 and 750. The 2007-2009 (later 2007-2012) brochures follow that same information.......The earliest brochure 2007/2008 (I believe this brochure was also used for the 2009 to start with) shows the map light accent and the satin door lock knobs, but once there was a new/updated 2007-2009 brochure showing 660 and 750hp, the map light and door lock knobs are no longer on the list of interior upgrade items. <<I am assuming the 660 and 750hp upgrade for the 2007-2009 came at about the same time as the 2010 changed to those hp numbers and all brochures after that point for 2007-2012 (and 2013/14) do not show those interior items. So just my guess, by the multiple Super Snake spec. cards that I have for a comparo, the Shelby Map Light Trim and Satin Silver Door Lock Knobs were discontinued as part of the standard Super Snake build sometime in 2010......and it just happens that the cars also moved up to 660 and 750hp on those newer brochures that no longer show those two interior items. Also, there is no mention at all of those two interior items in the three unique 2011/12 Super Snake brochures that I have or in the later 2007-2012 Super Snake information. Do you have the Black Modulare wheels? or the Silver? R
  4. Does your car have the Shelby installed Silver "Satin door lock knobs" that are listed as a standard item in the earier 2007/2008 Super Snake brochure? The satin knobs and the map light accent were Scott Drake items.... R
  5. I am researching the "Aluminum Shelby map light accent" as it is called in the original/earlier 2007/2008 Super Snake information card showing all standard features and options. I will need to look through the newer cards that I have and do a stare and compare....... R
  6. First of all, your car has the Modulare 3-Piece wheels and not the 2007-2012 Alcoa's? and you Super Snake hood is heat extractor functional, but not ram air functional? There have been some parts vendor changes over the years of Super Snake production, but "usually" the parts follow the previous design from any outward look. As for removing the 1/4 window block-off plates.....those may be a pain to get off. Unlike the 1/4 window scoops that stick to the body paint and can be removed with mineral spirits and a plastic spatula, the block-off's wrap around the edge of the window and it will be hard to get any sort of chemical behind them to release the double stick and if you try to pull them off without a chemical aid, they will probably get damaged beyond reuse. "Maybe" heat from the backside on the 1/4 window? Since there is a "somewhat easy to tape" hard edge around those 1/4 windows, the area around them could be taped, they could be sprayed on the car. One question on the Black block-offs...........The plates came from SPP Black with the bright alum. rivets, on some of the early cars, specifically Amy B.'s Grabber Orange 2008 and Gary P's 2007 Torch Red, the plates had Black rivets.......OR the block-off was sprayed Black to cover the rivets....Are your rivets Black or Silver, I have seen both on production Super Snakes. Black shown below..... R
  7. Scroll down in the link below and it "may" help, there are a couple of A/C delete options at the bottom, but they are for KB set ups. https://www.revanracing.com/products/gates-racing-belts.html R
  8. Thank you, and yes.......but how could your car be expected or required to have a -20 E.O. sticker (dated mid-2011) or a -28 E.O. sticker (dated mid to late-2015) when those E.O's were dated well past the time of your cars build/certification? Your emission tester needs to dig a little deeper into the certs (and dates of certs.) for your model year, I believe the -17 will be found to be acceptable once a little more research is done at the tester level. "If" by chance you are required to have the E.O. -20 or even more current E.O. -28, you will need to contact KB. If you need an email address for Rick @ KB, I can give it to you via a private message. I am not sure if they have reopened yet for phone calls, after the Corona shut down...... Best bet is going to be to print this stuff out and keep in the glove box for the next go round and questions at testing time...... R
  9. My 2008 had it's oem assy. line Motorcraft for just over 3 years (new in 2008), a 100 month Motorcraft replacement that crapped out at about 5 years and was prorated with a replacement 100 month Motorcraft for $55 and I have not had that issue, my original 2008 terminals still look new. <<<Knock on plastic!! Now I can say that one of the Motorcraft replacement batteries that I installed in my 1997 Ranger does have a leaky area around the positive post and has caused corrosion, but that was not the norm with the many Motorcraft batteries that I have purchased over the years........ I have read that leaks around battery posts among all of the flooded battery brands is not real common, but it does happen from time to time. R
  10. Ok, and here is the ,pdf for the E.O. -28........ https://ww3.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/devices/eo/d-271-28.pdf So it is dated 2015 and covers the 2013/14 5.8 GT500's also. In the end, yours really should be correct and covered under the E.O. -17 because nothing emissions wise changed for the 2007-2010 GT500's, the 2010 even kept the 2007-2009 2.5" oem exhaust size and O2 monitoring. Only if your guy is a "real stickler" about 2010 not being on the list, should this be an issue..... Sorry to add so many posts......Inquiring minds had to know....... R
  11. ABOVE^^^It copied and pasted weird, but read down about half way and the GT500 is specifically mentioned. And then the related .pdf, also specifically mentioning GT500, but 2007-2009, not 2010..... https://ww3.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/devices/eo/d-271-17.pdf So my guess is that Shelby had 2.8 kits on the shelf that fit the 5.4 DOHC GT500 and your car got one of those kits that had the "then correct" 2007-2009 GT500 CA emissions sticker included in the box, and it was not until June of 2011 when a newer E.O. -20 was issued for the GT500 application........and now there has been an even newer E.O. -28 covering the GT500's . But that should not negate the earlier E.O.'s that were issued when the older cars were emissions standards certified? The only thing that could come into play is that your car is not a 2007-2009 and the 2011 E.O. changed to -20 which would cover 2007-2012 GT500. R
  12. So further research on the Kenne Bell site in the FAQ shows your E.O number, which does include the Shelby GT500 in the description, but only up to 2009.

  13. Which had a .pdf that related to this...... https://ww3.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/devices/eo/d-271-20.pdf So now the question is......If the date on this documentation is 2011, was there a different E.O. number for the cars before 2011? or multiple E.O.'s and the E.O. number changed as they were newer models and emissions monitoring differences.......like the 2011 had a different O2 sensor set up from the 2007-2010, etc......

  15. THIS.... 4. They have a longer lifespan AGM batteries have a longer lifespan than traditional flooded batteries. Moreover, not only do they serve for a more extended period when they perform the same tasks, but they also last longer when they are not in active use. This is because self-discharging is minimized in these batteries, unlike other types of batteries, which is a huge problem. This ensures that one does not have to keep charging them after an extended period of inactivity. and THIS.... 3. Reduced capacity over time Though AGM batteries keep a charge for a longer time than other batteries, they gradually reduce their charging capacity over time. This is unlike gel batteries that have an advantage in this sector because of their excellent performance dome. ^^^^^These two statements don't seem to match up? Do the AGM batteries offer the length of prorated warranties that are included with the flooded batteries? If they have a longer lifespan, the AGM manufacturers should have no problem with the long term "warranty gamble" for their batteries. Like I said, 100 Month (prorated after 36 months) for my oem Motorcraft flooded..... From the two statements above, the AGM stores better (unused) or like many of our situations, the car sits for an extended period of time and we all know how quickly the flooded battery will drain without a tender, BUT.......at some point, the AGM charging capacity will be reduced and at that point (unknown), it will be called upon for duty and not perform..... I do like This..... 1. They are spill-proof Unlike the traditional lead-acid batteries that freely flood their electrodes, AGM batteries have glass mats that prevent this. Additionally, it is the function of these glass mats to avoid spillage. Rather than absorbing the electrolyte, the glass mats work by holding the electrolyte in place, preventing it from spilling over, even when the battery is placed in odd positions. R
